After arriving 5 weeks before their due date Jacob, Jenna and Jordan were whisked away to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to be given supplemental oxygen and extra care. Jordan came home at 14 days, and Jacob two days later. Jenna was in the hospital for a full month because she was having trouble breathing on her own. While it was tough having all three at home, the brave parents soon got them on a feeding and eating routine that worked for the whole family.
That’s when the hospital bills started coming in.
Terry and Lisa applied to the Kosair Kids Program for help with the triplets’ hospital bills, and because of the generosity of our donors, we were able to help them.
Now Jacob, Jenna, and Jordan are happy and healthy 7-year-olds. They love each other and love making new friends. They have struggled with speech delays, but Kosair Charities stepped in to cover the cost of speech therapy, occupational therapy, and ear tubes to get them back on track.
Terry expressed his gratitude for our donors support, “If it weren’t for Kosair Charities, I don’t know where we would be today. I remember a time when two out of three kids needed tubes in their ears and we didn’t know if we were going to have to choose who needed it more. That’s when Kosair Charities stepped up again because there was no way we could afford it all.”
Thank you for giving the Downs triplets and so many other Kosair Kids better tomorrows through your support of Kosair Charities!
