This is Hayden's Johns Hopkins Fund. The funds will be used for Hayden's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Hayden, now 4 years old, was born with a medical condition called Bladder Exstrophy (part of the bladder was outside of the body). He has already undergone a total of 7 surgeries to relocate his bladder and get things situated internally. However, he will need reconstructive surgery to get him to the “normal” life he deserves. This will require a trip to Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.
The surgery and recovery period are expected to take anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks in Maryland. Health insurance will pay for a majority of the procedure; however, Hayden’s mother will be responsible for the cost of traveling to and from Baltimore, lodging for the entire 2 – 3 week stay, and whatever the insurance doesn’t pay. Not to mention the pay she will not receive while out of work for a month. One can only imagine the financial strain this will put on the single mother of this amazing little boy.
We are trying to raise a total of $15,000 to get them to Baltimore and assist with all the additional costs this procedure will bring, but we can’t do it alone…
