Claude Michael Fraser Smith Fund

My sweet nephew Claude Michael Fraser Smith was born on June 1, 2015; to Blake and Amelia Smith. A few hours after Claude was born he was air lifted to the Children's Hospital in New Orleans where he will continue to be until he has surgery on his little heart.

Claude was born with the right side of his heart not fully developed. Not only was one side of his heart not fully developed he also has two heart valves that need to be reversed. He will have to have 3-surgeries. One within the next few days, another one in 6-months, and then again between the age of 2 or 3. 

As we all know medical bills are very expensive even with insurance. Not only will my brother and sister-n-law have to face the medical bills. They will have to miss time at work to be with there little one in his time of need. They also will have to factor in living expenses as they will have to basically relocate to New Orleans until the doctors deem Claude Michael able to go home and play with his big sister Oliva. This time period could last up to numerous months.

Therefore, I am asking that if any family/friends or anyone that would like to donate to the "Claude Michael Frasier Smith Fund" please do. No donation is too small and will be very appreciated in helping my brother's family with the upcoming expenses.

Blake did ask me to share a few words if I made a "GoFund Me" account. He wanted me to tell everyone that, He does not want to put anyone out there in a position that they feel like they have to give a donation. He stated that if you decided to it will be gratefully appreciated. He informed me that prayers for his baby boy would be just as good as a donation. He also stressed that all money that was not used to help pay for medical bills and other expenses while they have to stay in New Orleans; will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House.

Please continue to keep Claude Michael and his family in your prayers.

Thank you,
The family of Blake, Amelia and Oliva Smith
