This fund has been created to help the Horwitz family get the rest and support they need.

As many of you know, Laura, Hilton, and big sis Harper moved from South Africa to Boston earlier this year with baby Kellen so that he could receive necessary medical care.

Kellen was recently diagnosed with Cardio-Facio-Cutaneous Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that typically affects the heart, facial features, and skin. He recently underwent successful open heart surgery at Boston Children's Hospital and continues to receive medical treatment there.

Kellen is receiving excellent care, but as you can imagine, this has been a challenging time for the family. One of the components of Kellen's illness is poor sleep, so in addition to the stress of dealing with the diagnosis, this is an extremely sleep-deprived family! This fund has been created to help pay for occasional nighttime care for Kellen so that Laura and Hilton can get the rest and support they need.

Your donation will go towards a night nurse that will come to their home and help with the night feedings and other general care while Laura, Hilton, and Harper get a full night of sleep.

If we reach the goal of $5000 it would pay for 2 visits a week from the night nurse for about 2 months. The deadline is there because that is when the family can access the funds raised.

If you would prefer to send a check by mail, you can send to me at: Alison Tozzi Liu 3420 79th Street, 1F Jackson Heights, NY 11372.*
* Please write Kellen Horwitz in the memo line.

All of your contributions, thoughts, and prayers are greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
