Mathew and Stephanie are the parents of baby Addison. While 18 weeks pregnant, Stephanie and Mathew went to several doctors and learned that baby Addison had an SCT (saccrococcegeal terratoma) and that she would need surgery shortly after birth to remove it. 

Addison was born August 26, 2014 via csection and was immediately rushed to the NICU for breathing issues. Once she was settled in the NICU, Mathew and Stephanie learned that Addison also had heart and airway complications and would need additional surgeries. 

Currently, Addison has had a PDA ligation surgery to close a hole in her heart at 8 days old and SCT removal surgery about a week after that. Addison has a critical airway and has been on a ventilator with a breathing tube. Mathew and Stephanie are awaiting news to see whether or not Addison has complete tracheal rings, which would determine whether or not Addison would need to be care flighted to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. Hopefully Addison will not have complete tracheal rings and will be able to continue to be weaned off of her ventilator and will be able to go home soon. 

Please pray for their family and consider making a donation to help offset Addison's medical bills. Every prayer and penny are appreciated!
