Support Baby Jayden's Parents Fund.This money will be for food, lodging and travel for Baby Jayden parents and a guardian. Please Help!

This is Baby Jayden's Parents Fund. This money will be for food, lodging, and transportation for the parents and a guardian, while Baby Jayden undergoes two life-saving surgeries for neo-natal congenital hyper glycemia. Friends and family have given what they can. Unfortunately, that's not even a dent as to what they will need. Please show your support. Baby Jayden was born Feb 23, 2012 in Erwin,N.C. On Feb 24,his body temperature was uncontrollable and blood sugar unstable. He had threes seizures. He was immediately airlifted to Chapel Hill to the Children's Hospital. The doctors have spent over two weeks trying to keep him stable until they can send him to Philadelphia Children's Hospital for two surgeries for neo-natel congenital hyper glycemia. It is the only hospital in the U.S. that that can treat this condition. Logan,the mother has only been able to hold her son twice since airlifted to Chapel Hill. Baby Jayden will be in the Neo-natal Unit with only a reclining chair in the room. Baby Jayden's parents are under age; therefore, they can not stay at Ronald Mc Donald House, nor Host for Families, nor Salvation Army because must have 24 hour adult supervision for both of them. The only adult available to be supervise them is great grandmother because Logan's mother is attending school full-time for nursing and in clinicals plus working part-time; Great grandmother could stay in a hotel room, but would be unable to stay long periods in the hospital. They need lodging(2 rooms) close to the hospital, travel expenses, and food for 8 to 12 weeks. The mother is 17 and the father is 16. Both parents are from poor families. Due to circumstances, they are currently not in school and the father is transferring his job with Mc Donald's to be there with the baby. However, his pay would not be able to sustain them for the the time Baby Jayden is in the hospital. Neither one of them has very much money for food or lodging to be there for their child in the hospital. Thank you and may God bless you for reading their story. Please help if you are able. Time is of the essence. He will depart from Chapel Hill to Philadelphia Monday, March 19, 2012. His parents want to be with him; especially if it turns to be the worse case senario. There is a pig-picking fundraiser for the parents this Saturday Mar. 17 in Dunn, NC.
