This is Baby Landyn's Fund. The funds will be used for baby Landyn's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Baby Landyn Norris was born with a hole in his heart, he is only 5 months old and has multiple open heart surgeries. Just recently on April 5th 2012 he was air lifted from his home in Crossville, Tennessee to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee to have an emergency open heart surgery. He was in critical condition and his prognosis was not good. My name is John Kingsbury I have never met Baby Landyn or his parents Kyle and Stefanye in person, they are actually long time friends of my cousin Kimberly Rivers. In November of 2011 I had seen my cousin post statuses on Facebook about her best friends baby asking for prayers for baby Landyn to make it through one of his first open heart surgeries and I looked at some photos of baby Landyn and immediately I was overwhelmed with sadness, I could not begin to understand what this sweet baby is going through and what his parents are going through, knowing that it could be the last time they see their baby alive. Periodically I checked in with my cousin to see how baby Landyn was doing, it had its ups and downs, until the day I called my cousin on April 5th 2012 and ironically at that moment his condition was taking that turn for the worst. After his emergency surgery on the 5th of April, the doctors at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital were about to attempt to close his chest once he came off of bypass, it all was actually going well until his vitals started to drop significantly, the doctors had to postpone the procedure until they could stabilize him. The next day they made an successful attempt to close his chest. Baby Landyn has fought fevers and unimaginable pain on his little body, and his parents Kyle and Stefanye can only sit and watch their little angel endure all of these thing. Baby Landyn's parents are in need of assistance financially and emotional support, Kyle has to take an unpaid leave of absence from work for their stay at Vanderbilt Children's hospital in Nashville many hours away from their home in Crossville. The doctors have estimated they will have to stay at least two months before baby Landyn can return home. They have limited funds at this time for expenses they are encountering, and I am asking for any donation possible. Thank you.
