THE STORY:

THE STORY:
On April 4, 2014, the state of NY was made a little brighter with the birth of
Cathryn Bay Aulino. She is a beautiful baby girl, who at her 2 month visit
exhibited signs of a very small soft spot. By 4 months it was confirmed through
a cat scan that she has Craniosynostosis.

Craniosynostosis is a congenital birth defect that causes one or more skull
sutures to close earlier than normal. Cathryn has both coronal sutures fused,
which is called bicoronal. As her brain growns, her skull shape will begin to change to be noticably different. If left untreated, craniosynostosis can cause
increased intracranial pressure, seizures, visual abnormalities, skull deformity & developmental delays. The only way to correct this is through reconstructive surgery of removing her skull and remodeling it.

What lies ahead for the family is a long process of many doctor visits, highly
invasive surgery and and a lengthy recovery. The expenses associated with
receiving the necessary treatments, surgery, travel expenses to go see
specialists and medical costs not covered by insurance are overwhelming. Estimated costs of surgery may cost over $100,000.00. Family is trying to sell all of their belongings but it is just not enough.

Cathryn's parents, Jen and Eddie are lifelong residents of Lindenhurst, NY who are
devoted parents to three other boys- all doting, protective big brothers.
For more information on Cathryn's Condition you can follow her on facebook.
