The friends and family of Peyton Parsons are united to raise money to help pay medical expenses. Please show your support!

Her Grandma Sherri Parsons shares her story: "Peyton was born 5/17/2010 and was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. We were told that she would live a normal life but may need leg braces. On July 25, 2010 Peyton was having difficulty breathing. We took her to Akron Childrens Hospital where she stayed until December 2010. She had several surgery procedures and just could not seem to get better. As a result she received a trach, g-tube for feeds and a ventilator. We learned to care for her so she could come home for Christmas. She has been home off and on since December.

On July 4, 2011 she suffered a major seizure. Back to the hospital again. She stayed for about one week. On July 18, 2011 the Palliative Care Team at Childrens Hospital came to my house to deliver horrible news. The new MRI that they took showed that Peyton has a brain deformity called Schizencelapothy. Only 1 in 100,000 babies in the United Stated has been diagnosed with this. This is a terminal illness and we were told that Peyton has a very short time to live. We were told that the compassionate thing to do is to take her from the vent and allow her to have a peaceful death. So as our hearts break with this we know it is the right thing to do.

Our entire family appreciates all of your prayers and support and the wonderful support from the community. God bless every one of you and your family."

Friends are planning a celebration August 9th at the Village at St. Edwards in Fairlawn, Ohio from 4 to 6. It will be a Spaghetti Supper with silent auction and raffles to raise money for the extreme medical expenses and upcoming final expenses. Cost for tickets-$8 adults, $3 under 12. Donations in this amount can be made here to reserve a ticket at the door, or Donations can also be made at any US Bank in care of the Peyton Parsons Memorial Fund.
