"Friends of Brynlee" are asking for help to assist her family in their financial needs to continue seeking medical care for Baby Brynlee.

Brynlee was born with the rare and terminal genetic disease "MPS 1" Hurlers Syndrome. She spent most of her first year in the hospital.

This disease causes a build up of sugar molecules (called GAG) in her organs. It will ultimately take away many of Brynlee's abilities, halt her growth, and cause organ and bone damage. Sadly, there is no cure.

Brynlee continues to be seen by multiple specialists in Cincinnati who we pray can help her to live a less debilitating life. Her doctors continue to monitor her and attack the symptoms of the disease as they become known. She will require frequent surgeries for the rest of her life.

Brynlee's mother has had to give up her full-time job to care for Brynlee over the past 2 years and her father continues to put as much time as possible towards completing his electrical apprenticeship in between hospital visits and surgeries. A "normal" life will never be experienced by this loving family.

Their love for Brynlee is undeniable and can be felt from the moment you walk into their loving home that they are fighting so hard to save.
