Support Baby Araya, Mike & Aly

On August 28th my cousin Mike and his wife Aly welcomed their beautiful baby girl Araya to the world. But unfortunately, after two weeks of bed rest at home, and one week in the hospital, preeclampsia and the baby's heart rate dropping, they had to deliver her at only 26 weeks.  She weighed only 1 lb 8 oz, her lungs were not fully developed among many other things so she was immediately put on a ventilator. She started doing really well and was able to come off the ventilator only after a short time and things were looking great. However her tiny little brain started to develop a bleed that was being monitored very closely. A few days ago, it started to absorb, but today unfortunatly her brain started to swell and the bleed started getting worse. She has been flown down to Primary Children's Hospital from Idaho Falls where she will get the care and attention that she needs right now. Mike and Aly are the sweetest couple who would to anything to help their daughter, they signed on a new house the day they had Araya and with all these medical expenses they could really use extra prayers and financial support. Anything you can do to help would be so appreciated by them, their friends and their family. Thank you!!
