Baby Jay's Medical Expense Fund

In May Emily and Sunil found out they were expecting a baby boy due in January.  At their 18 week appointment they found out that baby Jay was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. The family has a lot of unexpected medical expenses coming up in the very near future so any amount you are able to donate would be a huge help! 

From Emily:

We found out on August 8th that our sweet baby boy has spina bifida. We were heartbroken of course to say the least. There is a possibility for us to have in utero surgery to repair the area when I am between 22-26 weeks. We are in the process now of being referred to specialists at Vanderbilt and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to see if we are candidates. Surgery would mean temporary relocation for the duration of my pregnancy to whichever hospital accepts us. We could not be more blessed to be surrounded by such loving and supportive family and friends. We have said from the beginning that our baby Jay is a little miracle baby and now he's just trying to prove that even more!

Emily and Sunil mean the world to us. They are two of the most caring, selfless individuals. We ask you to please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. The next several months will be challenging for the three of them but we know God will keep a close watch over them. 

"Expect Miracles" 

With love, 

The Huffmans!
