Expenses for Samuel Leroy's Medical

My 13 year old nephew, Samuel Leroy, was born with a congenital heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He has had many open heart surgeries in his short life. On Monday, he woke up and said he didnt feel very well and his mom (my twin sister) noticed that his breathing was off so she rushed him to the emergency room. He was diagnosed with a rare complication from his many open heart operations called Plastic Bronchitis. Because of this his oxygen saturations have been very low all week and he has expelled many "casts" from his lungs so they decided to take him into surgery and try to clean his lungs out.  While in surgery he coded and took a turn for the worse. He will be on a jet in just a few minutes to MUSC in Charleston and the next few days are going to be very touch and go. I first and foremost ask everyone to please pray for this sweet boy. He is only 13 and has so much life ahead of him.  We need him here and we are not ready to let him go. The very best case scenario leaves his mom and him in Charleston fpr 4-6 months at best. I have started this fundraiser to try and offset some of this cost. If you can't give please share and above all else I ask for you to please pray... pray very hard especially for the next 72 hours that he makes it through this. Thank you all so much and bless you all!
