A Voice for Caden! - Medical Fund

Our son, Caden, will be having his 4th surgery on November 26, 2014. We found a 22q11.2 center in Columbus, Ohio and will be traveling there again in just a couple of weeks.  Caden was born with 22q11.2 which is a genetic disorder caused by a deletion on his 22nd chromosome. He was born with several birth defects including club feet,  unilateral kidney, ITP- a blood disorder, an  infused heart valve, learning disabilities and weak pharyngeal muscles which causes severe hypernasal  speech all from this rare genetic disorder.  Caden is now 10 years old and still can not speak clearly. He will be having his second pharyngeal flap surgery to help close his airway.  This will be our second trip to the prestigious Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio in the last 4 months and we will need to follow up in 6 & 12 months after his surgery.  
This is Caden's chance to be able to communicate clearly and enable him to pursue his dream of becoming a "Weather Man." Medical bills and expenses with traveling are continuing to grow. We have had friends and family ask if they can help us financially.  We have put together this account and would greatly appreciate any donations given to help give our son the voice he is eagerly awaiting! Thank you, Wes and Kyra
