Hello everyone! My name is Taekierrae Bond. I currently reside in Eastern North Carolina. I am a mother to an amazing son, middle school teacher, currently in Graduate school, and I coach cheer and soccer at my school. Our Gastroschisis journey begin March 27, 2013 at UNC-Chapel Hill Children’s Hospital.
My gastro warrior is Sylvester Leon Willams Jr. “SJ”, and he is now 6 years old. He loves swimming, traveling, attending school, and being on his soccer team. He was born at 34 weeks; weighing in at 2 pounds 10 ounces. In the beginning, it was a journey for us and like most, we had never heard of Gastroschisis. Overall he has been doing very well. We have our bumps along the road, but we’re thankful for all the amazing help and support we have.
I am glad to be apart of Avery’s Angels Gastroschisis Foundation, and I’m looking forward to supporting families.
