Our little fighter, Julien Thomas Dunkle was born prematurely at 29 weeks on October 31, 2017. He developed a condition known as Gastroschisis, where the organs from his abdomen grew outside of his belly. His sweet mother Ingrid had been suffering from HELLP syndrome, anemia and kidney failure which meant the doctors had to perform an emergency C-section. Little Julien had good and bad days as they tried pushing his organs back in to get him to good health. It was expected that Julien would not survive birth, but for two weeks he fought as hard as he could surrounded by loving family, friends and doctors.
After rising complications and doing everything we could, little Julien passed away on Thursday, November 16, 2017. He will always be loved and greatly missed.
Julien's parents, Josh and Ingrid have received so much love and support. After having spent almost a month in the NICU and the ICU, they need as much financial help as they can get. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
