Baby Fights for Life

Baby Fights for Life

There is a little two-month-old baby girl clinging to life at the Neo-natal unit at Scott and White Hospital in Temple Texas. She needs a multi-visceral transplant, which is offered at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.

However, the process is stalled because of Texas Medicaid. The state requires the filing of 56 pages of an application including the requirement that the Board of Directors of the parent hospital, UI Health pass a resolution authorizing the child’s treatment.

Here’s the rub — the Board doesn’t meet until Feb. 24 (by then the little baby may expire). Time is not on her side.

We are working diligently on a solution. Stay tuned!
