Campaign has ended.


Our TyVel was born at 27 weeks along with his twin sister TyAnn. He was diagnosed with trisomy 21 and tetrology of fallot during my pregnancy. While in the NICU and the months following he was diagnosed with chronic lung disease, Hirschsprung’s disease for which he has a colostomy bag for, obstructive sleep apnea which he was on bipap but now in cpap for, silent aspiration which he has a gtube for, acid reflux and bile reflux. He has had quite the journey but is defying all odds by the grace of God. We are so proud of him and know that his daddy is smiling down from heaven watching his “Little T” grown and excel!!
