Hickey Conjoined Twins

On June 11, 2021 Charla & Logan went for their routine 20+ week anatomy scan of their baby girl. Only to receive the unbelievable news that there was not only one baby but two! Further into the ultrasound it was discovered that the twins are conjoined. This had went undiscovered the entire pregnancy leaving them with little to no options moving forward. The best thing the hospital could offer was the option to terminate within 4 days. Not giving them enough time to ethically process what they had just found out or not giving them time to find surgeons that could help their twin girls. Now in the 5th month of pregnancy they are scrambling to do whatever they can to help their baby girls survive and have a chance at life.

 

Its a miracle that the twins have survived long as they have and healthy all things considered. The family does have 3 older children ages 21 months up to 8 years old. So not only will this affect mom and dad but also brothers and sister as well. The family is on a roller coaster of emotions thinking of the upcoming visits to specialists and the continued development of the girls.

 

Ultimately the girls are expected to be delivered in late September to early October and from that point on they will inevitably be in the hospital for months to follow. They will go through potential surgeries and many other medical necessities to fight for their lives.

 

Charla and Logan are from Louisville, KY and are having to navigate through logistics in order to prepare to welcome their twin girls many of which will come with heavy financial expense. They will have to travel out of town hundreds of miles away from home and will have to make living arrangements temporarily while the girls are in the hospital. Our hope is to help raise funds to support the family now through the babies recoveries. Beyond the medical bills they will have living expenses, travel expenses and child care for their 3 older children and much more.

 

The family is leaning on God throughout this journey and trusting that things will work out how they are supposed to. Thank you for considering a donation to support them during this time.

UPDATE: after going to multiple hospitals and meetings with several professionals we have received the hopeful news that the team of doctors in Florida are willing to try separation if all goes well with the evaluation once they are born. We know God is capable of all things and we are praying for a miracle for these girls. 


In order to make this a possibility we are needing support and donations from our friends, family and community to be able to travel and stay in Florida. We do not know how long we willbe there but it is expected to be several months. Charla will need to deliver via C Section by the end of September and then remain in Florida until the planned surgery to separate the twins, plus recovery time before being released tocome back home to Kentucky. 

The family will have to rent a place to stay during the time spent in Florida for everything they will have to go through. Most places are not furnished so they will have many expenses come up. The family has 3 other children that will have to relocate as well. Please pray for this family during this difficult time as they face many obstacles and heartache. 


UPDATE: We wanted to share a update with everyone that the girls have been born! September 1st they were delivered and are stable and doing well thanks to God and a great team of doctors. Charla has done well with the surgery and is on the road to recovery. We are still asking for your prayers and support while the familyis off work and for all that is to come in the weeks ahead. All of you are very much appreciated and the family is so grateful for all of the helpand prayers received! The family still has a long and uncertain road ahead so please keep crane prayers coming and the family in your thoughts. 

Thank you all and God bless!
