On Sunday, January 27th heaven gained a beautiful little angel. Baby Jack fought as hard as he could for the 11 weeks that he was with us. It is safe to say he has left a beautiful footprint in all our hearts. The amount of love, support, and prayers is appreciated more than you all will ever know. While Tracy and Tommy’s love and faith will help to guide them through these days ahead, please continue to pray for them and show them how much we love and support them!
Update: Baby Jack had surgery on December 19. Everything went as planned, and he is recovering well. The wonderful medical staff are continuing to care for Jack and helping Tracy and Tommy to prepare for care once he returns home. They have a long road ahead, but are very thankful for their Christmas miracle!! Thanks for your ongoing love and support!!
On November 8th, 2018 Tracy and Tommy McCarthy gave birth to son, Jack Thomas McCarthy. It was soon discovered that baby Jack has a rare heart condition, Loeys-Dietz Syndrome, that will require surgery in order to survive. After being turned away by two different hospitals, they have found a doctor in Chicago that is willing to take Jack's case. Due to the severity of Jack's condition and the constant care he needs, Tracy and Tommy are unable to go back to work at this time. This event is to help raise funds to support them and Jack’s medical costs during this difficult time. Thanks to all for the continued thoughts and prayers!
