Story

On November 6th, 2012 my wife and I welcomed our first child into this world. Lucille Louise DeYoung was born 10 weeks premature into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She spent 64 days in the NICU and came home to us January 9th, 2013.

http://i1219.photobucket.com/albums/dd426/deyoung86/Lucy-1.jpg

My wife’s pregnancy was a struggle from the beginning. After many complications, being told that we would more than likely lose the baby, and a few trips to the E.R. they finally admitted her (28 weeks pregnant) and told us that she was going to stay until they decided it was time to deliver the baby. After just a few days they decided that it was no longer safe for the baby and that she needed to come out.

Lucy was born a perfectly healthy baby at 3 pounds 2 ounces, perfect all except for her brain. A MRI done a few days after her birth revealed that she suffered a large amount of brain damage. This left my wife and I with so many questions that the doctors could not answer. What does this mean? Will she ever go to school? Ride a bike? Walk? Talk? We still don’t know the answers to these questions but there one thing we do know: She is our miracle baby and the she has already progressed farther than the doctors were expecting.


I am not telling you this story for sympathy but to bring awareness to Lucy’s and other children’s situations. My wife and I would like to raise money for children’s research and help prevent our situation from happening to others.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raffle

Each ticket will cost $10 each. A number will accompany each ticket you buy. Each number will be written on a bottle cap and placed into a jar. Every bottle cap will be the same size and shape to ensure equal odds for everyone. The deadline for purchasing tickets will be Sunday February 24th, 2013 @ 11:59pm. The next day, Monday February 25th, I will make a video of the drawing and I will post it on SSA in this thread.

I would like to thank my wife. She is the toughest person I know, without her strength, Lucy would not be here today. I would also like to thank SSA (Aaron and Mark) for allowing me to do this on their website and for the great products they offer.


Thank you for your time,

Sean DeYoung

* Donating . *

Keep hope alive . My daughter was born with a neurological disorder ( Born without myelin in her brain) . The doctors said she would be a vegetable until 5YO where she will expire.

She is now 6 years old in the first grade and is the fastest runner in her class. Still without meylin . Love will conquer all . The geneticist , the neurologist , and all her other pediatric specialist at UCSF have no explanation. The best way they could describe it was like " jurassic park" in the sense that " Nature will find it's way"


I wish all the best my friend . PM me if any questions .

BTW: I don't know if it helped , but I played Classical music 24 hours a day in her room , non-stop, and massaged her 3 times a day from head to toe for and hour with oil to help circulation etc. As she got older I did different routines, but still classical music to the day.

Yeah I'm going to have to figure out what to do with this DCON. I said I wanted a 15'' ICON, but I'm not even sure a 15 will fit in my truck, at least with the proper box. Not to mention I would like to throw more than 300-500 watts at it.

Perhaps I will use it in a HT application. I've been wanting to build a HT sub box for awhile. Or maybe I'll sell it and put the $ towards subs that will work in my truck or my rent.

If you do sell it let me know :) I would buy it back from you.
Also, if you are looking for smaller SSA subwoofers as I trade, I have a few laying around.
