Kim, Dustin and Baby Max Stephen

On July 8, 2017 Kim and Dustin Stephen welcomed Maxwell James into this world 4 months earlier than expected. He was their rainbow baby for which these two had waited so long to meet. Kim had undergone several treatments prior to July 8 to avoid his early arrival; including being on doctor ordered bed rest. This rendered her unable to work. She was transported in the middle of the night to a larger hospital outside our city more equipped  to manage Maxwell's extensive needs. He was born at 1:30am only weighing 1.5 lbs but is a little fighter. Maxwell's doctors have determined he will stay there until October until the possibility of a transfer to mom and dads hometown. With their boy in the hospital Dustin must travel back and forth from towns to work and support his family both financially and emotionally. Funds would go towards this being possible as well as the added costs of Maxwell being in the hospital in a separate city. Please donate as these are two parents who will move mountains for their son, please help us make their mountains smaller.
