Today, I want to share the story of a former colleague. His daughter was born about a month ago with a rare genetic deformity called Goldenhar Syndrome.
The family has posted their daughter's story on YouTube.
Before Kristin is even 6 months old, she will require her first surgery. Over the next 18 years, she will require dozens of reconstructive surgeries in order to perform basic functions like hearing, eating, and breathing.
Their insurance will cover a great deal of of the costs for these surgeries, but the family must still pay a great deal out of pocket. They are hoping to raise money through donations.
If you are interested in helping them, please, check out their website at: https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/6062/babykristinsfacialreconstruction They will be able to accept donations for the next 120 days.
If you can't donate, but would be willing to leave them a note of encouragement or to pass their story on, they have a Facebook group called Tigerbabyface at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tigerbabyface/
Thank you for reading this post.
