Prayers for Elijah
Organized by: Clarissa McInnis
Hi, My name is Taylor McInnis. I am the blessed mother of Elijah Moore. Elijah was born February 25, 2015 and has been hospitalized his entire life at TCH. Elijah was born 3 months premature with severe pulmonary hypertension (which is an incurable chronic disease ), chronic lung disease, two holes in his heart (PDA)(ASD), he's Trached and breathing on a ventilator. He gets fed through a feeding tube and has never been home. Early last week my husband and I met with his team of doctors. They explained to us that our son is not an eligible candidate for lung transplant, due to his Pulmonary hypertension and chronic lung disease. After getting many second opinions our only option is to have hospice manage him at TCH until he passes. We don't know how much time we have left with our sweet baby but we're making every moment count. Due to Elijah's life long stay we have no money for his final arrangements. We were not able to insure him due to his chronic status. Medical bills are out of this world and we're hanging on by a thread. This is not our proudest moment as parents, working adults or human beings to ask for help. Please, anything will help our family. Our hearts go out to every person in this world trying to make a difference in someone's life, as do we. Please keep Elijah in your prayers. I will pay this help forward all I can. Thank you for taking this time to read about my son. God bless you.
