On August 1st, Logan Thomas Yale was born to proud parents Nikki and Dominic Yale. The first baby in both parents' families, Logan is special and so loved for more reasons than one. Just five weeks before he was born, Nikki and Dominic learned Logan has spina bifida myelomeningocele.
As soon as Dom and Nikki found out about Logan's SB, thus began a whirlwind of countless tests, appointments, and trips to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where Nikki would deliver Logan two weeks early and he would have surgery a short 24-hours later.
Thanks to the strength Logan's mommy and daddy passed onto him, the unparalleled skills and care of the doctors and nurses at CHOP, and the endless positive thoughts, prayers, and well wishes of thousands rooting for Logan, he did well through surgery, won the hearts of everyone he's met, and was able to come home after 10 days in the NICU.
Logan and his mommy and daddy are now home, adjusting to their "new normal," which includes so many exciting firsts, and unfortunately, many more challenges to overcome. For those of you who know Dom and Nikki, you know they will do everything to make sure Logan has everything he needs to live the best life imaginable.
Logan’s condition comes with numerous medical issues, and though we're still learning what his specific needs will be, medical and associated adaptive costs are already substantial and will continue to be throughout his life. If you can support Dom, Nikki, and Logan in tackling these costs by donating and joining in Logan’s League of supporters, you can help ensure Logan gets all the care he needs.
Thank you for your love, support, and continued prayers for our little Logan. We appreciate anything you can do.
