Brystol Renae Childress, 19 months old, had open heart surgery when she was only 7 months old, and that surgery and many tests left them owing over $20,000 in medical expenses.
Kosair Norton’s children hospital excused every penny of that bill, and according to Brystol's aunt, Renae Porter, the only way they can do that is through donations.
Brystol's family has decided it's their duty to pay it forward and will host a car show Oct 29, 2016 at SEES.
"Brystol will be facing another open heart surgery in the future, so we hope to make this car show an annual thing, and keep helping Kosair as much as possible," said Mrs. Porter. "Our Brownsville Businesses have come through above and beyond our expectations and are sponsoring all of our 18 trophies."
Brystol suffers from Asplenia and Congenital Heart Disease. "She is my heart and hero. She never complains even on the days she is blue and has limited oxygen. She is a miracle, strong and precious."
Brystol is the daughter of Travis and Rae Childress of Cub Run.
