Gastroschisis is a birth defect that results in an underdeveloped abdominal wall during the first trimester and leads to the intestines (and sometimes other organs) protruding from the body. While the birth defect affects about 1 in 10,000 babies, it is actually on the rise here in the US, showing an increase of 129% according to the CDC.

I had a chance to speak with this family earlier this week and it was encouraging to hear that the young couple and their child are taking their situation in stride.

If you have a few extra dollars this week, consider donating to their GoFundMe account (link found in the article).
