WE ARE UNITING TO HELP JARON AND BRYTTNEY PHILLIPS WITH THE COSTS ASSOCIATED TO THEIR BABY BOY'S SHONE'S DIAGNOSIS.

UPDATE: FOR UP TO DATE INFORMATION PLEASE VISIT MICHAEL'S BLOG: supportbabyphillips.blogspot.com

Jaron and Bryttney Phillips are expecting their second child at the beginning of April. It has been very difficult for them to conceive and go to term with their pregnancies so as you can imagine they were ecstatic to finally have another chance to have a baby! There precious baby boy will be here soon! They have recently received some heart breaking news. The baby has been diagnosed with Shone's Syndrome it is is a form of heart disease that has two main features. First, there are multiple problems with the left side of the heart, which receives blood from the lungs and pumps it to the body. The valves and passageways are often too small or blocked. Second, the abnormal areas on the left side get worse over time. This second aspect of Shone's Syndrome makes it very different from most other types of of congenital heart disease, which may be equally severe at birth, but do not progress over time.
To help correct the problem the baby will undergo several open heart surgeries as well as be in the NICU for a long period of time. They are a young hard working family whose lives will be changed forever. I want to raise money for them to help pay for medical bills, the bills they will have by not working (Bryttney will be unable to go back to work) and all of the other expenses that come with something like this.
