The family and friends of Elijah Culbreth are uniting to raise money to help with his unexpected medical bills. Please show your support!

Two weeks ago Elijah was the average 10yr old taking advantage of the warm after school days leading up to summer and looking forward to the last day of school and summer camp. The last thing anyone would associate with him was being sick but today Elijah is spending the majority of his time resting in the hospital.

Elijah was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia on 05/22/12. Elijah is diagnosed with germ-positive bacteremia and sepsis as a result of a perforated appendicitis. He is also receiving treatment for Wolff-Parkinson White (WPW) syndrome a heart condition discovered upon his hospital admission.

Having a sick child can be stressful even for the most prepared. Elijah's Mom was laid off one year ago and the shock of this unexpected medical event has made an unfortunate situation even more stressful. The struggle just to keep up with the bills is growing daily and we hope that with the help of family, friends, and the community Elijah's family can take care of the large medical bills and other loose ends.

Elijah remains in the hospital. His hospital stay is currently over $100,000 and continues to grow by the minute. Please join us in supporting Elijah and his family by donating what you can.
