Brixton's Medical Fund

Brixton is our one year old warrior who has defied the odds after having been diagnosed with a bladder obstruction at 20 weeks while in mom's womb. His prognosis was not promising and we were told that he would most likely have what was known as Prune Belly Syndrome. 2 out of 10,000 pregnancies are affected by bladder obstruction in fetus' and Prune Belly Syndrome occurs in 1 of 30,000 births. Brixton has had two surgical procedures done at University Medical Center in his hometown of Lubbock, TX. One was the placement of a feeding tube as he was diagnosed with Failure to Thrive and has had problems with weight gain since birth, and the second was the first phase of an orchiopexy surgery, for symptoms associated with Prune Belly Syndrome. Brixton currently feeds by mouth occasionally but does receive the majority of his nutrition by his feeding tube. Upon birth Brixton's journey was hit with more complication as he was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease and we were told he would be requiring a kidney transplant as his kidney function was slowly deteriorating. Currently Brixton is now at Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease and his function has fell below 18%. Brixton is scheduled to have 2 more surgical procedures this month (January 2019) and initiate the beginning phases of the transplant process at Cooks Children's Hospital in Fort Worth. This is the beginning of a many appointments, procedures, surgeries and more for our little warrior and we are asking for donations to help further his medical marathon. His journey may be intensifying but we still firmly believe that God has a purpose and a plan for his life and know we cannot break with our faith. He has been described as a medical miracle and we have heard that he was not supposed to be here but God had alternate plans for his life and ours. So if you cannot make a donation to his cause we will be eternally grateful with prayers and thoughts for our little guy throughout this trying process.
