The family and friends of Miss Darcie Do are coming together to raise money to help her along in her battle and to get F A T!

Miss Darcie Do was welcomed into the world on February 23rd 2012 at 2:06p, practically her whole family was there to greet her! When Miss Darcie Do was born there were obvious signs of Down syndrome, but this fact didn't dampen any of the O'Daniel's spirits, they were just so filled with joy that such a perfect little girl was now among them. After a little time at home a few things were catching their eye and starting to be worrisome. After some testing and an EKG they found the culprit, an inlet ventral septal defect. It is located between the aortic and pulmonary valves so it was hidden and harder to detect. Miss Darcie will need open heart surgery to mend her heart. throughout the time that it took for Darcie's doctors to figure out what was going on she lost quite a bit of weight, getting down to just 4 pounds and 12 ounces, Darcie hadn't been tolerating her meds very well and was getting sick, she got a NG tube to help get her weight up and is still nursing with her mother. This is where you come in! Darcie's family has put everything into getting her F A T and healthy these last couple of months to prepare for her surgery, one of the things that Darcie so desperately needs is her mom to have a good breast pump so that she can get the nutrients she needs to plump up! The idea is to raise the funds to get Darcie the medical supplies she needs and also to raise money for them to get to Texas for the surgery! Traveling is expensive and with resources running thin we are desperate to help this loving family get their little bundle of joy's heart pumping strong! Please join us together to help this ever deserving family in need!
