15815275_1478498323.2774_funddescriptionCelina came into this world on a roller coaster and hasn't quite gotten off of it yet... born at 25 wk 3 days 1 lb 11oz and 12 inches long . She was very sick when she was born, her lungs underdeveloped and being so small and classified as a micropreemie. The doctors tried multiple times to wean her off the ventilator and we're unsuccessful. After performing a bronchoscopy they determined that she has severe tracheomalasia . (Her windpipe collapses completely when she breathes) She had surgery for a tracheostomy and has been slowly gettin better and beginning to wean her off the ventilator. It will be a slow process. She has been in the NICU 4+ months.... 134 days to be exact. Medical care is not cheap and surprisingly we have already exceeded 2 million dollars in charges to our insurance. To make matters worse Celina'still mommy Nicole was terminated from her job shortly after returning to work because she couldn't tell them how long she would be gone. Medical bills piling up and Having 2 other kids, a household and traveling back and forth to Oakland everyday on one income has become trying for the family. Doctors are still unsure as to when she will be released to go home. Any help is appreciated. Thank you all for your continued support and help. #prayforCelina #TEAMCELINA

Celina had another surgery this past week. Gtube for feeding. She will still work on feeding by mouth but this is a backup so no pressure put on her. She is doing well. Please if you can't donate then share and pray for Celina! Thank you all!

We are very aware that what we are raising money for won't cover the costs. We are not greedy people. If we hit our goal awesome! I'd we don't that's OK too! If we go over it even better! But regardless we appreciate anything that people have to offer being a donation, a prayer, or even just hitting the share button! We are thankful and blessed to have #TEAMCELINA supporters and followers and appreciate anything you can do! We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
