Every life is precious including this handsome, brave boy. Baby Lincoln was born on Oct. 30th 2014. He was born with a coarctation of his aorta, 3 holes in the aorta and a bicuspid valve. Coarctation means narrowing of the aorta and the aorta is the major artery leading away from the heart. Little Lincoln underwent a full aortic repair on his 4th day of life. During recovery his lung collapsed twice requiring him to be put back on the endotracheal tube and on the vent until his lungs became stronger on their own. He then spent 18 days in the intensive care unit. Once out of hospital he was able to return home with his family. Little did he know 2 months following the surgery he would need to return to the hospital to have a heart catheterization because the scar tissue was causing his aorta to tighten again. Currently the little guy is home with his loving family but currently has to be on 2 reflus medications which are $70.00 a month and because of his cardiac history he sees a cardiologist montly for an echocardiogram and EKG (picture) of his heart.
A little background on the family is that Toni and Eric currently live in an apartment in bangor maine. Toni is a stay at home mom to a loving little girl named Naveah (big sister) and she also works with her at home on education. Eric was gone for 13 months away from home on a deployment to Africa as an air traffic controller in the Navy, and was able to return home when Toni was 7 months pregnant with baby Lincoln. They are one of the strongest families I know to have overcome these many challenges.
Currently they are looking at medical bills over $30,000and climbing! Let's pull together and take a little bit of the weight off the families shoulders to pay back Baby Lincoln's Medical Bills. Thank you all for your support and lets help take care of this loving family!!!
No one should fall into great debt by saving their baby's life.
