Help us fix Marleigh's melon!

This sweet girl is Marleigh Jean. In October of 2017, we were informed that our sweet baby girl had been diagnosed with severe plagiocephaly. Plagiocephaly essentially means a flat spot on the side of her head, which for most little ones is easily fixed. Although because Marleigh's is severe, hers is a more sensitive situation.

We saught the opinions of three doctors who each concluded that she would in fact need treatment, and soon at that because she is displaying signs of facial distortion. If not treated within the suggested time frame- long term, this will cause painful issues with jaw alignment as well as complicating the more simple things in life. Things such as eyeglass fittings or wearing a helmet to ride her first bike will become incredibly difficult for her.

Her treatment will require four months of a cranial helmet to help reshape that little melon of hers. Unfortunately with such a tight timeline, we are unable to come up with the quoted $1,860 by the time she would need to begin wearing the cranial band (first week of December at absolute latest). We have already attempted to work with insurance. The response has not been a positive one as they have continued to deny claims regardless of medical necessity and now, we are short on time.

This is where we are asking for the help of our friends, family, and community. To rally together and work in unity to be able to get this sweet baby girl what she needs to live a comfortable life. Any donation at all is appreciated. Whether large or small, each donation is one step closer to helping our little girl get what she needs.


(Any funds remaining after treatment will be donated to a recognized nonprofit in need)
