Pernsteiner support fund

On November 18th, Kyle and Katie Pernsteiner became parents to a beautiful baby girl named Elaine. Little Elaine has a virus (or infection) called CMV. It’s a common virus much like a cold that most adults and children can fight off with no complications, but babies cannot. Elaine has an enlarged liver and spleen, which are pressing into her lungs. Her blood platelet levels are very low and in this first few days of life she has had 4 platelet transfusions. She is being transferred from a hospital in Guam to Tripler hospital in Honolulu to be treated for cmv. The treatment can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months. As of right now they are having to pay for travel and all expenses out of pocket until they can be reimbursed for receipts at the end of the month. Please help us support Kyle and Katie in this very trying time. Thank you
