Help for Jaxon and Axel

This fund is set up to help my nephew Chris and his wife Michelle, the parents of twins Axel and Jaxon, who were delivered April 26 at 27 weeks gestation, due to complications of a TTTS (Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome) pregnancy.  Both had Grade 4 brain bleeds, ROP (an eye condition which could affect their vision), hydrocephalus and Jaxon has hypertonia and may have cerebral palsy.   The NICU at Children's Hospital has been home since shortly after birth but after many surgeries and complications, it is looking like they will finally be going home soon.  Due to their many complex conditions, it will require both Michelle and Chris to look after them full-time, at least for the foreseeable future.  Chris has made the difficult decision to take a leave from work so that the twins can be given the best possible start in life.  In addition to the loss of income this will bring, there will be many additional  expenses that aren't covered.  First time parenthood should be a joyous and exciting experience, not a roller-coaster ride of uncertainty.  Please donate so that Chris and Michelle do not have the additional stress of worrying about their bills.   They have both been incredibly strong through all of this and no one is more deserving of help.  They are an incredible couple who I know would not ask for help but I have chosen to start this fund because I know how much they need the help and how grateful their whole family will be.  For more information on the struggles they have faced, see Michelle's blog:  the fightingirishmartins.com.  No amount is too small!
