My name is Rachelle. I live in Wisconsin with my two beautiful girls and my husband. Although we are originally from West Virginia, our gastroschisis warrior was cared for and had her first surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. We found out at our 18 week ultrasound that our little girl was indeed a little girl and that she would be born with a birth defect I had never even heard of. Although we knew our little girl would need extra care after birth we were not prepared for what was to come. The wonderful staff at CCH made our reality a little easier during our stay. That was nearly ten years ago. Since then our little warrior has had two more surgeries here in Wisconsin. I am so grateful to be apart of Avery’s Angels so I may offer the support we have experienced throughout the years.
