Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page for the 2018 Le Bonheur Pumpkin Run 5k. This year I'm participating to support the more than 250,000 children and their families who come to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital for exceptional care.
Please help me meet my goal by making a donation or join my team and participate with us. Here is our story:
Welcome to our TEAM! We are Keith and Raechyl Moore, and We have
three beautiful children: Delilah Hayes, Scarlett Wren, and Luke Everett.
When Luke was 6 months old, what we thought was his first ear infection, quickly turned into a scary situation where Luke was no longer able to crawl, pull up, or sit unassisted. I have been a NICU nurse for 7 years at Le Bonheur, and we knew that is where we needed to go to get help for Luke. When we got there, we were blessed to have world class consulting physicians in Neurology, Emergency Medicine, Infectious Disease, Intensive Care, and ENT, as well as amazing nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and hospitalists. Luke was diagnosed with Infantile Botulism, a disease that affects about 100 kids a year in the entire United States. Le Bonheur worked quickly to fly in the only drug in the world that could slow the progression of infantile botulism, BabyBIG. They got the BabyBIG medicine within 18 hours of Luke being diagnosed. Luke was slowly being paralyzed and this medicine saved him from getting worse and drastically shortened our length of stay in the hospital. We spent 16 days in the hospital learning how to eat and waiting on our nerve receptors in our muscles to regenerate.
Throughout our stay, we could not have asked for better treatment or a better example of patient and family centered care. My home away from home, saved our baby's life, and we could not be more grateful. We are honored to be able to give back through the Pumpkin Run so that all of the sweet children in the Mid South can have the resources to one of the best children's hospitals in the country!
