Anyways, they had a beautiful baby girl last year, Nora Jane, and she instantly brightened up the life everyone who knew them. Unfortunately, she was born with a terrible heart condition that left her with a hole in her heart and without a left ventricle. She has already been through various expensive surgeries in the past year, and they had to take her to 3 hours away to the hospital on Vanderbilt's campus in Nashville for yet another surgery. Before they left, there was a benefit show put together to help them with this round of medical bills that raised a decent amount of money. During the pre-op procedures to get her ready for the major surgery she was going through, there were a few complications that have left her with a collapsed lung. She's currently receiving oxygen treatment because she can't go through with the surgery until her lung has fully recovered. Because of the complications, Justin and April are having to stay out of work for a longer period of time while the medical costs continue to pile up.
I know none of this really matters to you guys, but I've seen you all help out a ton of people on here that really need it. I know they'd appreciate anything, even if you can't donate and just leave some inspirational words or bump this up for more people to see.
HERE'S THE DONATION PAGE THEY'RE USING:
IF YOU'D RATHER DONATE DIRECTLY THROUGH PAYPAL:
They've already promised to donate any excess funds to other families with children suffering from congenital heart defects/disease.
I'd be cool if one of the mods would be willing to sticky this if possible. If not, I completely understand that as well.
Thank you to anyone who gave this attention, regardless of whether you donated or not. You're awesome, and every one of our friends appreciates you.
Good luck, Nora. We're all sending you strength, and you have two of the best parents in the entire world. You're going to pull out of this just fine.
