Life Saving Surgery for Baby & Mother

Please help my close friend, Isabella, and her family, with this necessary life saving surgery for her unborn baby and herself. She is in her third trimester, and her baby was diagnosed with omphalocele. This is when the organs are growing outside of the baby's belly. Fortunately it is only baby Luca's intestines. The doctors say it is a small surgery and are very positive! Of course we know it's essential for his survival!

On top of that, the mother has placenta accreta. So the doctors are preparing a C section plan a month before her due date to be prepared for whatever may happen during surgery, to save Isabella's life, if necessary. Placenta accreta is when the placenta is embedded into the uterine wall. So the risk is uncontrollable bleeding. They may have to remove her uterus completely to save her life.

So her family is looking at a C section to save Isabella's life due to the placenta accreta, and surgery for the baby's organs to put the intestines inside his little body. We don't even want to consider the possibility of her dying.

They don't really have any idea what the cost will be for everything. We put $30,000, guessing. They do have insurance, but have had to pay as much as 40% in the past for C sections, and there could be other costs as well due to time unable to work, complications, or God forbid worst case scenarios I don't even want to say out loud.

Momma is married with 2 more girls, age 9 and 4. They are trying to look forward to baby brother Luca's arrival, but it's very stressful right now! Anything anyone is willing to donate is very very much appreciated to help them through this medical crisis with momma and baby's lives in danger.

Thank you for your help
