Brooks Theisen Fundraiser
Brooks is 20 months old. He was born at 35 weeks and is a NICU graduate! The pregnancy was complicated by the loss of his twin brother, Carter at 22 weeks. Brooks has been growing and meeting milestones. He is truly such a happy boy. At the age of 3 months he was first hospitalized. Brooks has had frequent infections and nearly weekly fevers. He has been treated for a multitude of illnesses including pneumonia, bronchiolitis, croup, and episodes of wheezing. He has been treated as though he has asthma at a very early age requiring respiratory care such as nebulizer treatments, inhalers, and Chest Physiotherapy. Brooks and his family started doctoring with specialty pediatric experts in January of 2021 including Infectious Disease, ENT, Audiology, Allergy/Immunology, and Pediatric Pulmonology. He has also had to undergo many procedures including a study of his airway, his vocal cords, and multiple x-rays and CT scans. They received a referral for Mayo Clinic in March of 2021. They have their 3rd trip to Mayo planned later this month. The trusted team at Mayo is currently working on finding a diagnosis to explain the fevers and frequent illnesses. Their hope is to find a treatment for him so he can continue to live a long and healthy life! They are so grateful for all the care he has received this far. The frequent illnesses require Brooks to be cared for at home as he is unable to attend daycare when he is ill. Due to the amount of illnesses, Brooks’ parents have missed a significant amount of time at work. Graciously, Brooks’ parents have received PTO donations to assist with their time away. Unfortunately, PTO donations are now exhausted as well. Please join us in raising help and hope for Brooks and his family.
