Kelly Thomas & Baby Emory's Fund

When Kelly was 19 weeks pregnant with Emory, she almost lost her. Doctors were able to prevent an early delivery, but required Kelly to be on bedrest at home for the remainder of her pregnancy. This meant not working, which meant no insurance. After two weeks at home, Emory tried to come early again. This time, doctors required Kelly to be on bedrest in the hospital. Emory was deliver premature at 24 weeks. While she has had many obstacles to overcome, including emergent surgery, blood transfusions, and relying on a breathing tube, she is a a fighter like her mother and is surpassing all expectations. However, Kelly and Emory still have a long road ahead of them. 
     Donations will go to help Kelly pay the large medical bills from Kelly's 3 week hospitalization and Emory's NICU stay that will continue at least until mid-October. Even a small donation will help ease the burden for Kelly and allow her to focus on being a new mommy to Emory. Thank you so much for any help you can give!
    If you are unable to give money, any baby items, meals, or words of encouragement for Kelly or any treats for the NICU nurses caring for Emory at Presbyterian Hospital would be greatly appreciated as well!
