Move Mountains for Nathaniel Torres

“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”
– Harriette Hartigan

Daisy Lopez and Peter Torres have been blessed with the knowledge of knowing they will have a son, Nathaniel. At 24 weeks, Nathaniel has been diagnosed with having Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele, a birth defect that occurs when the bones in a baby's spine do not fully form during early pregnancy. A myelomeningocele is the most serious form of spina bifida that creates a small sac through an opening in the spine. Because of this, Daisy has been qualified to undergo a fetal spina bifida surgery in hopes of repairing the opening in Nathaniel's back. While fetal surgery for spina bifida is not a cure, studies show that prenatal repair can reduce the need to divert fluid from the brain, which would help give Nathaniel a chance to be able to walk. This extensive surgical experience requires significant commitment on Daisy and Peter's part. The goal is to provide this loving family with financial support to help cover Nathaniel's medical costs, all while supporting the doctors performing this intensive procedure.  A link has also been provided below in order to raise awareness for the 3-4 babies born with this defect out of every 10,000 babies born. Please help them provide a bright future for their little Nathaniel. Any donation will be greatly appreciated!
