The family of Kaiden Mann is uniting to raise money to help with medical and travel expenses. Thank you for your support!

Kaiden was born on October 24, 2011 with a rare genetic disorder known as Apert syndrome. Apert syndrome occurs in approximately 1 out of every 160,000 to 200,000 live births and is characterized by specific malformations of the skull, midface, hands and feet. Due to the complexity of this syndrome, Kaiden faces many surgeries within the first few years of his life. He has had two cranial surgeries to create openings in his skull to allow room for his brain to grow, and a shunt was placed to drain excess fluid from his brain. When he is older, he will need operations to correct the structures of his midface. His fingers and toes are fused and this will require several operations to separate them. Because of this complex syndrome, some of his operations must be done out of state by surgeons who specialize in craniofacial disorders. This requires traveling out of the state to receive the medical care that Kaiden needs. Medical insurance does not cover all of the expense and we need your help! Please make a donation to help with medical and travel expenses. All donations are greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your support!
