Update: 02/26/2020 - Elliott Mellon's Support Fund

Elliott Mellon was born on September 26, 2019.  Elliott was born with an extremely rare heart defect called tetralogy of fallot with an absent pulmonary valve.  He was also born with an extremely rare chromosome defect known as DiGeorge syndrome.  Seconds after birth, he was intubated, placed on ventilator life support and taken into intensive care.  At 11 days old, Elliott underwent open heart surgery to repair the heart defect and temporarily fix his pulmonary valve.  Shortly after the open heart surgery, Elliott began having seizures of unknown origin.  Days later, doctors found blood in Elliott's brain that possibly traveled there during open heart surgery.  Doctors will not be able determine if a brain injury was sustained until Elliott is older and evaluated further.  

Elliott is still in the intensive care unit at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver, Colorado.  He is barely a month old, and he has already overcome more obstacles than most people will see in their lifetime.  Doctors say Elliott faces more heart surgeries in the future.  The Mellon family is in the fight of a lifetime.  Elliott's father, Nate Mellon, is making the three-hour commute from Denver to Rifle for his job three days a week.  Elliott's mother, Ariel Mellon, and big sister, Cassidy, are living in Denver until Elliott can come home.  The Mellon family is facing a lot of expenses now and in the future.
