A local family is asking for prayers for baby Lance who has been in the NICU for the past five months and just had a setback. His grandma, Danielle Jones, reached out to us to share his story.
“Baby Lance is my first and only grandchild. When I found out I was going to be a grandma, I was beyond excited! Baby Lance has had quite a fight in the NICU for almost five months now. This little guy is beyond strong! Who would have known someone so small could fight so hard. He is my hero,” she said.
Jones said Lance’s mom and dad, Marie Kuznicki and Robert Naples, have been so scared and stressed and it’s no way to start their new life as a family. Lance was born at only 1 pound 2 ounces. He’s been such a warrior, but now he might need a trachea put in and his parents are beyond worried for their baby boy.
“They are young and this is their first child, said Jones. “Being a first time parent is scary enough but to have a baby with so many critical medical issues is a whole other story. They try to be brave for Lance but hate seeing him go through so much.”
Jones has created a GoFundMe page to help the Family with medical expenses. To make a donation, visit www.gofundme.com/helping-baby-lance-mommy-amp-daddy.
