Rally for Wrenley

In May of 2017, one year old Baby Wrenley was diagnosed with idiopathic aplastic anemia, a rare blood disorder that affects the bone marrow. This diagnosis can be life threatening if the proper care is not received. This fall, Wrenley will undergo a round of chemotherapy plus a bone marrow transplant. After the transplant, Wrenley must stay in the hospital for up to eight weeks to ensure there are no complications.

Wrenley’s parent’s, Paul and Kris of Batavia, are an important part of the Tri-City community. During Wrenleys’ care, both Paul and Kris will have to take time off work, travel to the University of Chicago throughout the week, and coordinate childcare for their older daughter, River. 

We are coming together for the Pavels family to help offset the medical and care costs. This family needs our help now so they can focus on the most imporant goal: getting baby Wrenley better.
