Elijah Barcak was born dead after being at the hospital for only 15 minutes. Miraculously, he was revived but spent his first few weeks on life support before he was able to go home with his family. Elijah has Down syndrome, along with a number of other conditions. He has weekly visits to various therapists and specialists, but his family anticipates a beautiful future for him.
Theresa Barcak, Elijah’s mother, says that her little boy continues to face his challenges with a smile and fighting spirit. His follow-ups and therapy sessions are necessary because of his weak muscle tone; he works extra hard and tires faster than most kids. He has undergone five surgeries, and has been hospitalized twice with pneumonia.
We are incredibly inspired by Elijah’s story and by the faith and courage shown by the Barcak Family. We are raising funds to help offset the continuing medical costs so that Elijah and his family can enjoy this second chance at life.
Our agency will donate $10 to the Barcak Family on your behalf for every recommendation you send our way, and we’ll add you to our monthly drawing for a $50 Gift Card.
