Thomas Pio - Blessings & A Miracle

Jamie and Elsie Brechbiel are expecting their second child, Thomas Pio in May 2018.  On a routine ultrasound appointment, they left the office feeling excited about the news that they will be having a baby boy!  Then the doctor called them back into the office saying the words that no expecting parents want to hear, "something is wrong".  Jamie and Elsie had learned that their baby boy  was diagnosed with a rare birth defect called Occipital Encephalocele.   An encephalocele, to put it simply,  is where the brain begins to grow outside of the head due to a hole in the skull.   Jamie and Elsie have been meeting with  multiple specialists at Children's Hospital of Philidephia (one of the best in the world for this type of diagnosis) and have been through the gamut of medical tests, ultrasounds, and fetal MRI's to check the status of the baby on a bi-weekly basis.  The specialists are convinced that if Thomas Pio survives his birth, they feel he will pass away shortly thereafter or at the very least, he will  have severe disabilities and not able to breathe or eat on his own.  We need PRAYERS & A MIRACLE.

This has not only been a emotional time for this beautiful family (they have a  2- year old daughter) but is also a financial burden with the constant travel and medical fees they have endured and will continue to endure.  If you could help in any way, please donate to The Brechbiel Family.  If you can not donate financially, please find it in your heart to donate your prayers of healing and strength.  The c-section is scheduled in Mid- May 2018.   We need graces to handle this and  we are forever grateful  for your help in this difficult time.   Please share this post. Thank you and God Bless!
