Karsen was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and has already undergone two open-heart surgeries, was on advanced life-support for 14+ days and had extensive hospital stays.
The family had to relocate to the area where the hospital was while he was recuperating. Mom is unable to work now because of his condition.
They have insurance but it's getting maxed out which has left them with some extremely high bills. The Aubrey Rose Foundation was able to help them with their medical bills.
Here is a note from Karsen's Mom:
We appreciate your foundation so much. It was such a relief to know you were able to help us out with one of our medical bills for our sweet boy. Along with assisting us financially, you sent 2 very cute teddy bears that our kids have not ventured far from since they were received. Knowing a foundation out there is more then just assisting financially but making sure the kids receive something to is so special and heart warming. Thank you for assisting us and making our kids feel that much more special.

Benjamin was diagnosed with acute liver failure, and he ultimately needed a new liver. At the end of 2018, Benjamin had a successful liver transplant!
Below is a message from Benjamin’s family.
I wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for your generosity and kindness with helping out with one of our son’s medical bills. I was actually having a rough morning balancing work and virtual learning with my kids. And on top of my mind was I need to make a payment to the hospital. But today we opened the box you sent and it put a smile on our faces.

We are going to start a weekly spotlight every Friday of someone special connected to our organization.
Our first spotlight is on Madison Jordan! Madison has a diagnosis of retinoblastoma. (An eye cancer that begins in the back of the eye (retina), most commonly in children.)
She was diagnosed when she was approximately 3-months-old and she is now 5-years-old. She continues to go back to MD Anderson for scans under anesthesia. Madison has two sisters, Paisley who is 6, and Shiloh who is 2.
This is a message from Madison and their family!
“Dear Nancy and those who support the Aubrey Rose Foundation, thank you so much for your contribution to our medical expenses for Madison. You bring relief and joy to those you help.
Cancer is already terribly hard to deal with your child, but the extensive financial strain it can also cause is horrible too! So from the bottom of our hearts, we THANK YOU! God Bless!" - The Jordans
