Family and friends of the Simonsen family are joining together to help offset/assist with medical/medication expenses for baby Sophia.

On 10-22-10 our baby Sophia was born. She was immediately rushed to the NICU to be given oxygen. As we stayed by her side for the next few days we were informed she had Down Syndrome and a breathing disorder. For the next month we stayed in the hospital as she went through a variety of procedures to find the cause of her inability to sustain effective breathing. Because of all the hospital procedures she lost the ability to eat and a feeding tube was placed in her nose. She was then diagnosed with infantile spasms, a form of epilepsy. As with most unexpected and stress-laden events of this magnitude, the expenses are many due to traveling to multiple specialists, baby sitters for our 5 kids each time we need to see a specialist and medical equipment in the home. We have also just found out that the medication for seizures will no longer be covered by the insurance company. Any financial help you can provide will be welcome.
