This is where your donations go.
It’s important for you to know where your donations go. Below is a brief overview of some of the children that have been aided from the generosity and kindness through donations to the Aubrey Rose Foundation.
|CEDRIC is diagnosed with Failure to Thrive! Cedric’s parents are asking for help with his hospital stay to determine what is wrong with him. This is an ongoing battle with many tests, but his parents finally received his diagnosis!|
|BAKOR is one and half years old and has Down Syndrome. He also has an airway disorder called Laryngomalacia. Bakor’s parents are asking for his hospital co-pay to be paid. This is a life-long problem for Bakor and his family.|
MICAH was diagnosed with CMS which causes him to eat and drink all of his food through a feeding tube and be on oxygen as well. Micah can’t play on the playground, run around outside or ride a bike without someone carrying his oxygen tank. Micah needs an oxygen concentrator so he can be like a “normal” child and play outside.
UPDATE: For the first time ever, MICAH was able to go Trick-or-Treating without someone carrying his oxygen. His oxygen concentrator was incorporated into a fantastic Halloween costume as seen in the photo on the right.
|DAMIEN has a condition that causes his body to vomit until his body goes into shock! His parents constantly are on the lookout for what he eats or plays with that contains triggers. At any given time, Damien can be exposed to triggers or a virus that can cause him to deteriorate quickly and dangerously. It is terrifying!! Damien’s parents need help with their hospital co-pay.|
|HAYLEY is a 2-year-old beautiful little girl who required a bowel resection surgery on the day she was born. She lost most of her bowel which left her with short bowel syndrome and if fully TPN (Lipids & fats) dependent. Hayley was never bottle fed because she lost her instinct to eat, drink and suck.|
|VALENTINA is a 7-year-old girl who has ALL. Valentina received an allogenic transplant and was discharged from the hospital but needs to be seen in clinic 3 times a week. The family is really financially struggling to pay all of her co-pays.|

These families are asking for help because co-pays are too much, the bills themselves are cost prohibitive and also, insurance will not help with these specific bills. Because of the child’s condition, some families have reached the maximum that insurance will cover … you can call these kiddo’s the million dollar babies! These are just a few of the reasons why families reach out to the Aubrey Rose Foundation.
There are very few organizations like ours that will actually help families with their children’s medical bills and sometimes these families just need a little bit of help and that is exactly what the Aubrey Rose Foundation does!
Thank you from the Bottom of Our Hearts and Double Lungs for your kindness and generosity!
