We’re Kenn & Megan Kelly and we’ve dedicated our lives to helping others be set free from physical, emotional, and spiritual bondage so they can live free, healthy, and thriving lives.

So, when our daughter was born on Jan 13, 2019 with a rare and extremely dangerous congenital disorder called gastroschisis it shook the very core of our identity!

Megan went into labor five weeks early and upon delivering our beautiful baby daughter Talyah Kascade we discovered the gastroschises as all of her lower organs were external of her stomach. Seeing our beautiful daughter so innocent yet in such a challenging position was heart wrenching. Immediately we were transported through Flight for Life to Rocky Mountain Children’s Hospital where Talyah underwent her first of four major surgeries. Over the next 35 days we spent every waking moment with Talyah in the NICU fighting for, believing for, and loving her.

We were told over 20 different times that she would pass away within minutes due to complications that happened over the 35 days. Yet despite their diagnosis each time, she always overcame.

Then on Februrary 16th Talyah passed away in our arms after her kidneys had failed and her pH levels dropped to fatal levels. That day was the first and only time we were ever able to hold our own daughter since birth. During that time we were completely transformed as people and are even more motivated than ever to press further into healing and restoration for ourselves and others.

We’ve been radically humbled by the love and support we’ve received during this time and now is the first time we are asking for financial support as well. Within our first 2 days we had already accumulated a bill of over $1.5M, after 35 days we’re not sure exactly ow much insurance will cover. We’re beyond humbled that you would consider helping support us through this difficult time. Any funds raised will go towards premiums, NICU medical bills, and family support for anything above the final medical bills cost.
