Here is what McKayla had to share about her daughter: “My daughter, Malaiya was born with CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia), this is a hole in the diaphragm when in utero that allows abdominal organs into the chest cavity making it so the lungs do not grow properly.
Malaiya spent 10 months in the NICU and about 7 months in a rehabilitation facility from all of the medical issues she had due to being born with CDH. She has had over 5 surgeries, more procedures done than I can count, is on multiple medications, still has so many medical issues & will for the rest of her life.
She has pulmonary hypertension, chronic lung disease, acid reflux, multiple vision diagnosis, asthma with acute exacerbation, chronic hypodermic respiratory failure, and oral aversion. She has a feeding tube, tracheostomy tube, oxygen, ventilator while sleeping. All of this for just one little girl to go through in her 8 years of life & she is not the only one.
So many families deal with situations similar to ours, also very different but all very tough. It can take a toll emotionally, mentally, physically, and financially on the child & their families. We are trying to raise money to help families like ours so please make a purchase to help us help them!”
