Rally for Freddy the Fighter


Due to an overwhelming response of people who have inquired how to help, this fund has been established to benefit Freddy Skrivseth's recovery.

"Freddy the Fighter"

Freddy was born on August 3, 2017, and soon thereafter it was discovered that he had a large PDA (heart murmur) affecting his growth. At three months, Freddy underwent his first cath lab procedure then open chest surgery on November 1, 2017, which closed the PDA. The next few months were followed by more hospital stays due to viruses and respiratory illnesses as a result of his heart condition.

Most recently, Freddy underwent his second surgery on March 29, 2018. It was an open heart surgery to repair his narrow aortic artery. Freddy is currently 8 months old and is recovering at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. Besides normal food and travel expenses, the multiple hospital stays along with pre- and post-surgery quarantining have resulted in his parents, Casey and Abbey, taking many unpaid days off work to ensure proper healing and recovery for Freddy.

If you wish to make a donation to help offset expenses, please feel free to donate to the Freddy the Fighter GoFundMe page. 

Please keep little Freddy and his family in your prayers. 

With Sincere Gratitude,
The Skrivseth Family
