Hunter's N.I.C.U.

Hello my name is Penny Dahl my brother Danny and sister in law Jenni had a beautiful baby boy, named Hunter, on May 26, 2017. While most babies born at 36 weeks gestation are perfectly healthy and fully developed, my nephew was in severe respiratory distress. With his health and stability decreasing, he was separated from his parents and airlifted to John Muir NICU from Stanford ValleyCare. Hunter is now a week old and while growing stronger he still needs help breathing and constant monitoring and stimuation for Brady's and Apnea's.  Doctors have assured Danny and Jenni that he will   be there at least another week if not longer. 
Danny and Jenni have experienced this once before with their daughter Olivia, born at 32 weeks gestation and remained at John Muir NICU for 40 nights. They had finally paid off her medical bills from 2015 which came to over $20,000. They both worked two jobs and did not ask for any financial help back then, which is why it's so important for our family to help and ask for help on their behalf now.
All donations received will go toward Hunter's medical bills which include the following: Stanford valleycare NICU, Stanford Pediatric Cardiology, REACH Medical Air Lift, John Muir NICU, in addition to physician, radiology and lab bills.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank you. Even if you can't donate please share their story. More updates to follow.
"Come on lil man, your mommy and daddy want you home and big sis wants to meet you".
