Our sweet Sterling was born May 21, 2017.  His parents, Marcus and Amber, instantly fell in love to their perfect, healthy, and happy baby boy.  At around six months old, Marcus and Amber noticed that Sterling was not progressing developmentally, so they reached out to his pediatrician.  This is where the rounds of testing began. 
After several months of extensive testing, they didn't have any answers.  All tests came back normal or negative.   They were led to believe that Sterling was just a "late bloomer".
Two months ago, Sterling was at an eye doctor appointment, and that is where Marcus and Amber heard the alarming words, "Tay Sachs Disease". 
Tay Sachs Disease is an extremely rare genetic disorder in infants that causes destruction to nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. There are only about 17 cases per year diagnosed.  Currently, there is no cure for this disease.  It is 100% fatal in children.  The expected life span of a child diagnosed with Tay Sachs is five years of age.  As the disease progresses, children with Tay-Sachs disease experience seizures, vision and hearing loss, intellectual disability, and paralysis.
As Marcus and Amber take the next stepping stone in this journey, there are many financial burdens to face.  Because Sterling is now more greatly affected by common illnesses, and him catching a simple cold could be fatal, Marcus or Amber is going to have to quit their job and stay home with sweet Sterling. A Hospice Nurse will be coming to their home twice a week as well as equipment will be coming home with them to help with Sterling. 
We share all of this in hopes to take away some of the financial burdens for Marcus and Amber so that they can focus on what is most important, sweet Sterling.  Please consider helping this precious family by donating what you can.  Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated. 
Although, the news Marcus and Amber are hearing is devastating, their faith is strong and our God is bigger! They know that God is the Ultimate Physician.  There is nothing too big for Him.  We are speaking and believing in faith that our sweet Sterling is healed, healthy, and happy.  Speak these truths with us, believe them, donate, and most importantly, PRAY for our sweet Sterling!!
Thank you for reading sweet Sterling's story and for helping out!!
