The family and friends of Mattison Grace are uniting to raise funds for medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

On August 17, 2010, we received the news that no expecting parents want to hear. "There is a problem with the pregnancy." That phone call from the doctor shattered our world and we embarked on a journey no one could imagine. Later confirmed by amniocentesis, Mattison was diagnosed with a rare, unnamed, chromosomal abnormality that doctors predicted would be fatal. No other baby has survived with this condition.

However, on February 4, 2011, Mattison was born and God decided that she would live. Now that Mattison is 17 months old, her medical expenses are hefty. Her medical team consists of 18 doctors, specialists, and allied health professionals. Due to her multiple appointments and hospitalizations, Mom had to quit her full-time job. Mattison DOES NOT qualify for other medical assistance programs including Disability or Medicaid. Thus, we rely on my husband's income and insurance and we pay for everything else out of pocket. This fund is to assist with those costs. To learn more about Mattison's condition, please visit her Caring Bridge page by clicking the link to the left. Please feel free to share our story.
