Bailey's Medical Fund

In February 2016, Mike and Kelly were married.  Being family oriented, they couldn't wait to start their own adventure into creating a family.  Mike works downtown at a marketing firm and Kelly works as a cardiac nurse at a local hospital.  Despite their busy schedules, they were so excited when they found out they were pregnant!

Born on September 19, Bailey was originally born at Edwards Hospital. Hours after she was born, she was diagnosed with dextrocardia, a very rare heart condition where her heart is on the right side of her body.  When it was discovered how severe her health was, she was transferred to Christ Hospital and has been there for the past two weeks.  Her brief life has been a myriad of tests and already she's had one major surgery while a multitude of others are pending.

I want to help in the only way I know how: helping to alleviate the stress and pressure on Mike and Kelly that come with medical care.  Their full focus should be on helping their daughter fight instead of worrying about all of her bills.  Both parents are currently residing at the Ronald McDonald house next to the hospital where they spend all day, every day supporting, helping, and loving Bailey through this difficult fight.
