Baby Cox Needs Hope!

This is to help raise money for Baby Cox, who was diagnosed with a rare birth defect called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This occurs when the diaphragm doesn't finish forming properly, leaving a hole. The organs are then able to move up through the hole into the chest cavity. This pushes the heart over and constricts the growth of the lungs, which causes underdeveloped lungs and can be deadly. This defect can have a high mortality rate with the average national survival rate being around 50%.* 

This is where Dr. Kays in Florida comes in. He is a specialist in CDH and spends most of his time on these patients. His survival rate is almost 90%. In order to give the baby the best chance of survival, the Cox family is going to have to temporarily relocate to Florida. Sarah will have to be there for 35 weeks and stay until the baby is out of NICU.  This is an incredible financial hardship for my sister and her family, and as of now we have no idea how we can possibly afford to cover all the costs associated with this move.

The money will be used for Baby Cox's medical care, along with the relocation expenses. In this time of giving and holiday cheer please consider my sister and her family and help us create a Christmas miracle.
