Support for the Wilmot family

This is a support page to help offset staggering costs associated with the Wilmot family travel and lodging expenses as well as various other associated expenses related to missing prolong periods of work due to baby Levis open heart surgery.

Baby Levi was born on Saturday June 17, 2017, at 6 pounds 14 ounces the Wilmot family had no reason to believe they had anything other than a beautiful healthy baby boy, shortly after birth however- an oxygen test was performed on Baby Levi and he was rushed to intensive care, they found two arteries in his little heart are out of place as well as a hole in the heart itself, his condition warranted a medical evacuation to New York City, where he will be under going open heart surgery within the next 24 hours, Tom is not only my best friend since 8th grade, he is also one of the few I call brother. We enlisted together in the Army and Tom honorably served his nation with the United States Infantry in Alaska, and continues to serve in the reserves, he has been a dedicated and steadfast Orkin employee since leaving Active Duty and has done nothing but raise our standards of excellence at work, his wife Katy and their young daughter Arianna are both beautiful and bright but both are taking a heavy toll from the last few days, Arianna has been unable to spend time with her parents as they stay in the hospital and Katy is exauhsted, the news of Baby Levis condition left the family scrambling to acquire proper plane tickets, pay bills, find baby sitting and more all while Toms sisters wedding is Friday. The back and forth travel expenses the family will acquire trying to take care of their home here while ensuring their newborn in NICU for many weeks to come in NYC and here....is going to be nothing short of staggering.

Anything you can donate is not taken for granted by him anyone close to him and his family, I know sometimes people look at these and often pass by them but it takes only a minute and some change to make a significant impact on the life of someone going through trying times right now. Thank you so much, and please keep baby Levi in your thoughts and prayers- as well as the family.
