Help Josh, Kayla & Noah With Medical Expenses

Josh and Kayla are expecting a baby boy, Noah.  Noah has been diagnosed with a birth defect called congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).  It is a condition where there is a hernia (hole) in the diaphragm.  He has stomach and intestinal parts in his chest cavity.  He will be born at 38 weeks.  Because of the seriousness of his condition, Kayla will have to relocate to Denver at 34 weeks and remain there until he is born and has had corrective surgery.  Immediately after birth, Noah will be placed on a ventilator and a feeding tube and will be placed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  Surgery will be performed to correct the hernia about 3-6 days after birth.  Noah will have to be in the NICU up to 2 months following surgery.  We have been told that CDH babies are some of the sickest in the NICU.  When Noah is released, he will be sent home on oxygen and will need additional services such as physical therapy and speech therapy (swallowing/eating).

Josh and Kayla will need the finances to cover their out of pocket medical expenses, travel costs from Cody to Denver, living expenses while in Denver.  They will also need finances to cover their mortgage, insurance and monthly bills while Kayla and Josh are away and not able to work.
