Need Your Support!

Hello Everyone...I need your support. I am blessed to announce that I have been named to the Executive Leadership Team for the American Heart Association for the Cape Fear Region. Feeling the urge to do extra to continue being a great father for Kayleigh, I've wanted to get involved anyway I can with different sorts of organizations and this journey has started with the March of Dimes and the American Heart Association.

Beyond this amazing designation, I wanted to give my services through my job to help others live a healthier lifestyle and being a personal trainer, it has given me the opportunity to do such that. I have decided to give my services for FREE to those who are local and would like to get involved with my Heart Healthy Fit Camp. It is a program for all ages and all fitness levels. I am not making a single dime on this program and all it takes to participate is a $50.00 donation to the American Heart Association.

Now I know a lot of you who have followed Kayleigh's journey are not local to participate in my program, but there is definitely a way you can help our team succeed in this years Cape Fear Heart Walk. In Kayleigh's name, I am asking for donations to help support a great cause. You don't have to donate a lot, but a little bit will add up.

We all know Kayleigh's heart condition (Pulmonary Hypertension) was one of the leading causes for her under development which landed her as one of the smallest to ever undergo open heart surgery, but the technology of today was the reason Aimee and I were able to spend over 10 months with our sweet daughter. That was the biggest blessing to us and we would love to give that blessing and more to other families out there.

Please click on the link below or the link in the top left toolbar to help give to a great cause. We greatly appreciate it more than ever.



Thank you so very much!

This story has touch a specail place in my heart.I am just so thankful I saw this video of kayleigh on youtube because it has put everything in perspective for me.My one year old has hypotonia(low muscle tone)and it can be mild or even fatal depending on the diagnosis.We have yet to get any answers.Aside from that this tiny little blessing has shown me that being there for my son is the most important and lifting him up in prayer and showing compassion everyday of his life.he struggles and I get frustrated with him.I have found myself being so selfish at times but this has encouraged me to be there to help him push through whatever may come.She is in my thoughts even as a stranger.I can just picture her sweet little eyes just looking up at the lord with so much love.May the lord bless your family always.

Hello you loving parents!! i am deeply sorry for your loss.... i just read kayleigh's story and i remember when i was pregnant with my son at the ultrasound the doctor told me that he might have downsyndrome well we were thinking about getting an abortion but thank God we didnt coz now we have a wonderful starry eyed son... and with my daughter she was diagnosed with verything you could think of while i was pregnant with her but shes as healthy as a horse also so i can cope with you about that but for the loss of a child i cant really but please know that my heart goes out to you and may the Lord be with you

Have you thought off getting donations to help hospitals , I mean nicu's get more equipment . I know working in an nice for 12 yr's your remarkable struggle. And love and loss of a presious child. She is decently an angle with God, watching out for you and other babies fighting in nicu's around the world. .i am so sorry for your loss. But remember she is still in your hearts and of any one else who has seem your previous video of your angel. Ash and Caeleigh' mommy
