Baby Bradley needs your help!

Bradley Ludwig was born on January 6, 2014. He was 36 weeks gestation and aside from being born breech, he appeared to be a healthy baby boy. As an infant, Bradley suffered from excessive vomitting, constipation, and lack of weight gain. He has continued to be a mystery to every Dr. he has seen. Bradley has had numerous tests done over the past several months. In May, Bradley had a nissen fundoplication surgery to stop the vomiting and help heal the esophagus. At the time of this surgery, Bradley also had a gtube placed in his abdomen. Bradley is currently in eating therapy to strengthen his esophagus so that he can eventually be fed through his mouth. Bradley also has a growth hormone deficiency and at almost a year old only weighs 13 pounds. He is given a growth hormone shot at home, daily. The growth hormone is not helping at this point. He is hypoglycemic and has to have his sugar checked several times a day. He has to be fed at specific times and requires a background feed as he sleeps to prevent his sugar from dropping too low. His sugar fluctuates all day and he struggles to stay within a normal range even within an hour of being fed. Some other diagnoses Bradley has include hypotonia in his upper extremities, FTT, and a 145kb deletion in band 1q25.2 chromosome 1. He cannot sit for more than a minute and cannot bare weight on his legs. He will be getting tubes placed in his ears in January due to chronic ear infections. He takes several medications, many of which are not covered by insurance. The Dr's in GA are stumped and he has been referred to CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) after being turned away by other major hospitals due to the severity of his symptoms. Unfortunately, Bradley's parents cannot afford to just pick up and make the trip to PA. Bradley has two older brothers and they are a one income family. Bradley needs your help in order to get the medical attention he requires. Any amount of help is greatly appreciated. We will also be planning a benefit in Port Allegany, where Bradley's parents are from and where his brothers will be staying while Bradley is being treated at CHOP. Please donate if you are able and share this page! Help us get Bradley healthy!
