Raising funds for baby Isaac

Tue, 04/28/2015 - 12:30pm

    Lisa Perry is trying to help raise donations for baby Isaac.

    Kirstie Farnham is expecting baby Isaac to arrive Aug. 13. Lisa Perry's son, Richard Perry, is the baby's father. Right after Easter it was discovered that baby Isaac has bronchopulmonary sequestration, which means he has a mass on his left lung, and the mass has pushed his heart to the right side.

    On April 20, Farnham was at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to have more tests. She returned to Boothbay Harbor, but on April 27 she made another weekly trip to Portland for another ultrasound. She has had one round of steroid shots to slow the growth of the mass. If it has continued to grow, she will have to return to Philadelphia, perhaps until baby Isaac is born. If the mass continues to grow, they may try surgery before he is born.

    Lisa Perry has started a GoFundMe page for them at www.gofundme.com/thebabyisaacfund. There has also been a fund set up at The First Bank in Boothbay Harbor. (Baby Isaac Donations).
