Stem Cell Treatment for Lincoln

I apologize for the lack of updates.  Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and support during this challenging time in our life.  I know many people were following this website to check on our progress, and we have not posted anything in quite a while.  My only excuse is that we didn't have many answers to post.

Missy has come a long way in recovering, but she still isn't 100% back to her old self. Her appetite hasn’t completely returned, but she is able to hold down some food now.

 Lincoln is doing okay, but we do have concerns about his development.  His head circumference isn’t increasing, which is caused by the damage to his brain.  We have been looking into stem cell treatment using his oldest brothers umbilical cord blood that we saved 7 years ago.  We just recently learned that they are enough of a donor match to perform the stem cell transfusion.  There is a little more information about what we are doing on the crowdfunding website Youcaring (see the link below).

We are trying to raise the funds to pay for the treatment and travel cost.  Please do not think that you have to donate any money to us.  Just caring about our well-being is enough for us.  It may be a while before I post again, but I will post again to give you updates on the stem cell treatment.

    Thank you so much for this update on Missy and Lincoln. My husband, Terry, and I have known Hayden for several years through work. We will continue to lift this precious family in prayer. It is such a sweet blessing to see the Bakers walk of faith through this very trying time. May God be so very near to them as they travel this path in life.
