My name is Tonya Miller. I am married and a mother of an 10 yr. old gastroschisis princess. We live in Western Kentucky. I first heard the word gastroschisis the night my daughter was born. We didn’t know until she was born that she had gastroschisis. She was transported to Nashville, Tennessee. to the children’s hospital where she had a silo implemented and closure on the 4th day. She came home after a 41/2 weeks. My family was the only support I had with the shock of my daughter being born with gastroschisis. They were super but didn’t know any more than what I had read on the internet. I want to make sure that no other family feels the way I did. I want to bring awareness to my community and state.
