This young family struggles everyday both with Kyle’s physical challenges and financially. They view each day as a gift with him as they never know what tomorrow holds for Kyle. Our ability to help them on a more continuous basis would relieve some of the tremendous pressure they are under wondering how they will make ends meet for food, clothes, shoes, rent, utilities, car payment, etc.
Kyle was a healthy 2 year old when he suddenly developed AVM (arterial venous malformation of the arteries & veins in the brain which intertwine & grow together). As he was recovering from his first surgery, Kyle suddenly suffered a stroke from an aneurysm which crushed his brain stem & cerebellum due to brain swelling, while his mom was pregnant with twins. A craniotomy was performed to relieve the pressure and Kyle remained in a coma for 14 days.
Passion 4 K.I.D.S. organized a San Diego fundraiser for then 2 year old Kyle in an effort to help defray some of the family’s mounting bills as both parents had to leave their jobs to remain at Kyle’s bedside.
Today at age 7, Kyle has endured 51 surgeries and has cheated death on numerous occasions. His condition remains baffling to his surgeons as they have tried every known procedure on him with no lasting results.
Kyle’s parents now have 4 children – Kyle age 7, twins Brady & Aubrey age 4 and baby Cody 2. Their life has become an endless journey of emergency surgeries while trying to maintain some type of normal life for their young family. They have not been out alone together in over 3 years yet you will never hear them complain and always see a smile on their faces.
We would love to be able to provide this family with ongoing support as Kyle still has many health challenges to overcome which are very expensive. Since their income is limited to only one parent being able to work, they stress every month as to how they will meet the basic expenses of their family. We take over their monthly car payment whenever possible to help relieve some of the financial pressures on them.
