Prissy Gets Stem Cell Treatments because of you!!!

Priscilla Baker was born on April 17, 2020. Labour and delivery all went “smoothly” however, when she was born she came out blue and unresponsive. She was quickly removed from Cole and Ashley and a few short hours later they would find out that she suffered a hypoxic (lack of oxygen) event at some point prior to birth, and that she ad suffered severe brain damage. Her diagnosis would be Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) grade 3 severe. The only known “treatment” method for this type of injury is a cooling method where the body is put into hypothermia for 72 hours, to stop further loss of brain cells, this is known as a cooling method. This is a relatively new treatment; if Priscilla was born just 10 years earlier it is likely she would have passed away.

This sweet girl had to lay by herself under a cold mat that covered her entire body for 3 days. It wasn’t until the 72 hours were up that her parents were actually able to hold her. As a result of this injury, Priscilla would later be diagnosed with bilateral Dystonic Cerebral Palsy.

A message from Mom:
I have never once looked at Prissy and thought she wouldn't eventually do something. She WILL walk. She WILL run and she WILL jump. I have no doubts. They told me there was an 80% she would be in a wheelchair. Don't get me wrong, if that's a part of her life then that's fine but that's only after we know we have done everything humanly possible to help her. She's the strongest person I've ever met, and I knew that within her first 24 hours of life. I know how hard she works and I know that the decisions we make now with her are quite literally life changing.       
WE OWE IT TO HER EVERYDAY TO DO WHAT WE CAN!!!
