Baby Olive medical expenses

My name is Tyler Knowlden. On December 20, 2017, my wife Mikella and I recieved the greatest gift in our beautiful baby Olive Emerson. Olive is now 8 months old, and the happiest baby you will ever meet. She loves to clap and give smiles to everyone she sees. But December 20th was also the beginning of some of the most terrifying and trying times of our lives. Baby Olive was born with a lung infection and was not able to breathe on her own. Mikella wasn’t even able to hold her before she was taken into a separate room to see if the doctors could help her to be able to breathe. Because of the infection and the Hospital not having all of the best equipment to help Olive, she was transferred by ambulance to a different hospital where she would spend the next 24 days in the NICU. She was sedated, intubated, and then on oxygen. When she eventually came home she was still on oxygen for a few months. With my collapsed lung just a couple months before and Olive being in the NICU for so long we have accumulated around $30,000 dollars in medical debt just within the last year. Asking for help is often really hard, however, our medical debt has become crippling and we aren’t able to catch up. We are starting to get collectors calling , and letters from law firms for payment. We need your help to catch up. We are asking for help to raise $5,000 dollars to put a dent in these bills and gain some peace of mind. Thank you for your time, consideration, love and help!
