This is the Oakley Gallup fund. Funds will assist with medical bills and expenses not covered by insurance for his esophagus transplant.

Our dear friend, Oakley Gallup is an amazing 5 year old that has battled and beat cancer, but because of the aggressive radiation and chemotherapy, our dear friend is required to undergo a major surgery. He will have a piece of his esophagus removed and a piece of his colon moved into where his esophagus is.
Oaks has been in and out of hospitals over the last few weeks. He went to Idaho to visit his grandparents and was having a hard time breathing, so he was admitted to a hospital there in Idaho. They stabilized Oakley and let him go home. Oakley and his family traveled back to Casper and were only home a few hours when he was re-admitted to the hospital. He was in the hospital in Casper for 4 days when they sent him down to Primary Childreb's Hospital. It was here that the Doctors discovered that Oakley's esophagus and trachea weren't connected right and fluid was going into his lungs and air was getting into his stomach. This amazing little boy has lost a lot of weight during this time period and right now he's in the PECU awaiting his surgery.
As his friends we wanted to help alleviate some of their stress by helping raise some money for all of their medical bills, travel expenses and missing work. This family has 3 other children to care for so anything you can give
Will help!
Be on team Oakley and make a difference in this 5 year olds life! Be the change that he needs!
