Scarlett Sweeney Spina Bifida Fund

Scarlett Stephenie Sweeney was born Feb 4th, 2015 at 11:56am. Scarlett Sweeney has mylomenenigecele spina bifida at the T10 level. She has severe Hydrocephalus with Chiari II Malformation. She has had nine surgery's already in her short little life (2 back surgeries and 7 brain surgeries). She will most likely need more. Out of the three types, Scarlett has the worst one. Scarlett will not be able to walk and will need a wheelchair. Hydrocephules, also called "water in the brain", which basically means there is too much cerebral fluid in the brain. Scarlett may have development issues as a result. This happens 1 in 4,000 births. There is no reason, and it is non-reversable. As devastating as this is, I am confident this will be a happy baby and will have a positive fullfilling life. I know this is not going to be easy but this is our child and I have faith and hope in the best. Any help will be appreciated, we will move forward no matter what.
