Car wash raises funds for preemie battling chronic lung disease | Community Spirit
Sarah Grayce Hess was born premature to Graylin and Beverly Hess of Cochran on December 19 via emergency C-section. She weighed just one pound, eight ounces. She spent months in neonatal ICU because of a pulmonary hemorrhage that caused two bouts of pneumonia and surgery to close her heart PDA valve becase of fluid produced. Though better now, she has chronic lung disease which warrants need for lots of oxygen support and coninued need for the NNICU.
Doctors told the family they'd like to transfer her to Pediatric ICU. That move would require a parent to be with Sara Grayce at all times. Once she is released from the hospital, Sarah Grayce will require oxygen and a feeding tube. To raise money for upcoming expenses, family and friends held a benefit car wash Saturday in the Citizen's Bank parking lot. To read more including how you can donate, click here.
