Within a day of being born on May 31, 2017, Tucker Snyder was rushed into surgery to help repair his defective heart.
Tucker was born with a condition known as HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.) HLHS is a rare congenital heart defect where the left side of his heart is extremely underdeveloped and can’t effectively pump blood to his body;
Tucker will need two more surgeries and treatments along with in home care in the months and years to come, so we are asking for your help.
Tucker’s parents, Jenn Niesen (Darrow) and Ed Snyder are extremely loving and hard-working people. Ed had taken extended time off while Tucker was at his most critical point. He has gone back to work and is traveling from Varysburg to Rochester while Jenn is staying by her baby’s side and is residing at Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, allowing her to be just minutes away. Although Tucker has insurance to help manage the cost of these treatments, his parents could use your support in helping cover the cost of unpaid medical and other incidentals that come with having such a sick child. (i.e. time off of work, travel expenses, extended aftercare..) AND Any monies collected that above and beyond their need will be donated to the Strong Memorial Ronald McDonald House in Tucker’s name.
We will be having a benefit on Saturday August 5th, from 1pm - 6pm, at Kodiak Jacks - 3481 Two Rod Road, Marilla.
Tickets are available for $20 - you can purchase tickets at Kodiak Jacks, or Darrow’s Restaurant, 13192 Broadway Alden, NY. You can contact Cathy at [phone redacted] or [phone redacted].
Your prayers are greatly needed!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
