 daughter, Mary-Jane Lakota Ali Pierce was born April 5th, 2015 at 25 weeks gestationally due to her mother being diagnosed with a severe infection and it was affecting her heart rate. She was born at BC Women's Hospital at 6:43 AM she weighed 1lb 4oz, and was 32cm long.

Our daughter is in the NICU at BC Womens and Children's Hospital. She was born with very severe E. Coli and a grade 4 brain bleed the doctors dind't expect her to make it past the first day, but she did against all odds, the next day we found out that the E. Coli was gone due to the antibiotics and she was starting to get to better in other aspects of health over a week she was on blood pressure meds, antibiotics and lots of blood products and morphine now a week and 4 days later, one side of the brain bleed has resolved itself and the other side isn't bleeding or draining as well as the other side of the brain, she isn't on morphine and a cocktail of other drugs or any blood products, she's starting to feed and can breathe on a lower ventilator setting. She evenetually came off oxygen and could breathe and bottle feed on her own and was transferred to abbotsford to come home now she is now almost 4 months old (2 weeks correcected) then one day we get a call saying she was septic and had to be rushed back to the NICU in children's hospital, she now has a severe infection causing brain swelling and up to 100 seizures a day that caused brain damage, and now she just got approved for a medication that will stop the seizures and hopefully now that she has been fully removed from breathing supports and is over 20 lbs and is being weaned off medications, we would use these funds to go towards first and formost, medicine for Mary-Jane and us, our housing and food while at the hospital, we are currently staying at Ronald McDonald House. We will also cover some of our normal expenses while I am not able to work. Feel free to donate, visit us, or to just pray for us. We also don't mind if you share this with your friends, thank you and god bless. - The Pierce Family

P.S more information will be posted for updates soon, thank you all for your support.
