Hi Everyone, Our beautiful princess, Kiyomie Tyson, was born on February 9, 2018. Her entrance into this world was a traumatic experience as she suffered a brain injury during birth, due to a lack of oxygen to her brain (severe Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy), which has in turn caused several additional life threatening complications. Kiyomie has been a patient at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, in Nashville, Tennessee for the past 66 days.

She is expected to remain there for the next 4 to 6 weeks (hopefully) during which she will have to undergo 2 essential surgeries before she can be discharged. Kiyomie is a very strong and resilient baby, making progress that doctors initially said she would not. She has fought through difficulties and defied the odds at her very tender age (2 months). After surgery we will remain here for 6 to 8 weeks for Kiyomie’s follow up visits; after which we will travel back home. She will require various support equipment and supplies to help her with feeding and to keep her airway free from secretions. Since the equipment and supplies is not available where we live, we will need to purchase a 6 month to 1 year supply in order to avoid additional costs. She will also need a host of medical treatments and therapies, including occupational and physical therapy for the rest of her life. 

We her parents, Ohssel & Kerssel Tyson have been here with her, supporting her through it all. We are both unable to go back home to work until she is discharged since our presence is essential in the recovery of our baby girl. The amount of money that we have is far less than what is expected to be spent in the coming weeks for medical care and living expenses. It is for this reason we are reaching out to you, we humbly ask for your assistance in covering these costs. Kiyomie is our first baby together.

Every dollar is a step toward getting her all the help that she needs so that she may have the best life possible. NOTHING is too little. We ask you to please give from your heart and keep us in your prayers. We are beyond grateful for your assistance and prayers. Kiyomie’s Family

Hi Friends....we have good and sad news.... Kiyomie was discharged from the hospital after a successful surgery. However just a few days later we had to rush her to the emergency room as she was having over 30 seizures a day. The hospital started her on a new medication that has decreased the seizure activity. It has not stopped all together, but we are hoping, as time goes by, it will.

Kiyomie has to go to several therapies every week. She has to be monitored constantly. It is an up and down battle but we are trying to cope. This is not the experience we expected as new parents but we are trying to be strong. Please continue to pray for our little baby as every day comes with a new development. Please continue to donate as the cost of everything is so high.

We thank you for your support.

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for all your donations and especially your prayers. Please continue to pray for our little Kiyomie.

She had her surgery on Friday 4th May and had three procedures done rather than the initial two. She had been doing ok after surgery, but last week she started having labored breathing and was therefore placed back on breathing support. We are in dismay and sad. But the doctors are investigating what's causing the labored breathing. Hopefully we will get an answer soon and our baby will finally be ok. But right now we're just waiting,hoping and praying.

Our family expresses our sincerest gratitude for all you've done so far. Please continue to pray for our family, share the link and donate.

God bless you all.
