Ezekiel's Journey

This page has been created to help Keith and Emily Hooper as they continue treatment of their son, Ezekiel.
Ezekiel Maddox Hooper was born November 21, 2016 weighing only 13 oz. He was delivered three months early.  He has continued to prove everyday that God works in miraculous ways! He now weighs 11 pounds! His NICU journey has been a long one with many ups and downs. After discovering a severe respiratory issue in April, he was transferred to Boston Children's Hospital in May for a surgery to correct it. He had surgery June 1, 2017. His recovery process has been slow, but  he is now only requiring oxygen for respiratory support. We do not know when he will be discharged to come home as he has had some feeding issues to address before being discharged.
The family's stay in Boston has been longer than expected and is still indefinite at this point. Keith and Emily have travel, lodging, and living expenses in Boston as well as their regular expenses in  Chattanooga. In addition to this, they have medical bills from his 7 month hospital stay that is above what insurance covers. Please consider donating to help this young family so their focus can be on the healing of their precious child.
All money raised will support Keith and Emily as they continue the journey to bring Ezekiel home!
