Landon is a fighter

My sister Kerri had her son, Landon, January 17, 2018 by emergency c-section. He was born with esophageal atresia, which means his esophagus did not grow and connect to his stomach and his windpipe and esophagus grew together and needed to be surgically fixed. These required immediate surgery. Landon had his original hospital stay from January until July 30th, and was discharged home then with home health. He has been having complications on and off with his breathing/tracheostomy, which have required him to be in and out of the hospital. He requires someone with him 24/7 since he is unable to make noises or cry. With all of this happening, Kerri is not able to work because Landon’s health is not allowing her to be away from him, and Chris is a disabled vet.  Hurricane Florence made Kerri evacuate from Wilmington with Saichai, Nathaniel and Landon to Duke Hospital, where they have been since September 12th. Landon had an incident on September 18th that has put him back in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. I am not able to be there to help Kerri in any way, so I am hoping this can. Any amount of money that you can give would be greatly appreciated. Maybe by having one less thing to worry about will make a difference or even help provide consistent home health care for Landon when he is discharged home, or to just be able to not worry about a bill right now, I think would make a tremendous difference. Thank you for your help!!!
