Friends & family of Cade Warren are joining together to raise money for medical bills not covered by insurance.

Cade was born at 36 weeks gestation with an undetected congenital heart defect and DiGeorge syndrome. DiGeorge syndrome is a disorder caused by a defect in chromosome 22, resulting in the poor development of several body systems. Medical problems commonly associated with DiGeorge syndrome include heart defects, poor immune system function, a cleft palate, complications related to low levels of calcium in the blood and behavioral disorders.

Cade had open heart surgery at 2 months old and has had several additional surgeries due to other complications. He suffers from GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disorder) resulting in low weight and muscle tone. Multiple surgeries and complications have set Cade back developmentally. Thus, he sees an occupational and physical therapist weekly. Cade will continue to have open heart surgery at least every two years to replace the conduit that has been placed in his heart for it to function properly. Additionally, he has a gastrointestinal tube (g-tube) used for all his feedings and will hopefully be able to eat by mouth later in life. Cade is given numerous medications daily to help control his calcium level and aid in proper functioning of his heart.

With the impending care Cade would need, Sue was unable to continue working full-time. She now stays home with her two boys and cares for Cade 24/7. With the loss of Sue's income, there has been an incredible strain on the families finances. Also, with Sue's job came 100% medical insurance which they no longer have. Now, the family's annual deductible (out of pocket cost) for their medical insurance is $7,800 a year. Please consider helping the Warren family with a financial contribution. Any contribution, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about Cade or his status, please feel free to contact the family representative, Brandie Stoneking (Sue's cousin) at bsstone36@gmail.com.
