Baby Kenji is a baby boy born 16 weeks premature. Kenji and his family needs your help.

Baby Kenji(1lb 5oz and 11.8 inches) and his twin, Benjamin, were conceived through IVF. They were born on 3/15/2012 at only 24 weeks and 4 days gestation. Due to severe prematurity, Benjamin passed away after 15 hours of life. Baby Kenji is still in the NICU and is faced with countless battles. He has PDA, a Grade 4 bleed in his right brain, and Stage 3 ROP in both eyes(will need surgery too). He's had numerous infections (E-coli, UTI, fungual infection, perforations, MRSA, etc..). Recently, he had NEC and we almost lost him. NEC is a lethal disease where the intestines loses circulation and they start to die off. Baby Kenji lost 90% of his bowels due to NEC. Doctors are saying Baby Kenji now has Short Gut/Bowel Syndrome. He will be dependant on feeding tubes until he gets a Small Bowel Transplant. Baby Kenji will be going to Pittsburgh's Children Hospital in 4-6 months for his transplant evaluation.  Please donate to help out Baby Kenji and his parents. No amount is too little. Let's give them one less thing to worry about. All donations will help pay for any of Baby Kenji's medical expenses not covered by insurance and/or medicaid. It will also help pay for family and travel expenses.

 

Please keep Baby Kenji and his parents in your thoughts and prayers too.
