The family and friends of Haley Manthe are uniting to raise money to help cover travel and medical expenses.

Haley Manthe was born on June 15, 2011. At 12 hours old, it was discovered that Haley has Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) and she was life flighted to Children's Mercy Hospital. (HLHS) is a complex and rare heart defect. The left side of her heart can't effectively pump blood to the body, so the right side of the heart must pump blood both to the lungs and to the rest of the body. Two weeks later, it was confirmed that Haley also has Turner's Sydrome. Turner syndrome (TS) is a medical disorder that affects about 1 in every 2,500 girls.

Surgery is necessary for her HLHS. Haley has been through a couple of heart surgeries already and still requires more surgeries for her heart defect. Children's Mercy is in Kansas City, 4 hours away from where she, her parents and siblings live. Jeremy and Debbie have 3 other children at home, and have spent countless hours on the road to split time between being with Haley and being with their other children. Haley has only been home for a total of 58 days, and not all together.

Traveling and food costs are piling up on this Christ loving family. While medical expenses are not an issue currently, they may be in the future. I know that they are honored to have each of you in their lives for prayer and support in the various ways given. Please consider giving financially if you can. They have a long road ahead, and any amount will help. God Bless!
