Our 2nd annual car-truck-motorcycle benefit show is being hosted for the Bartolini family. Brandi (mom), firefighter/paramedic for Manteno, has been dealing with reproductive issuses since 13 years old. Later on she found out that she had a congenital deformity to her uterus and cervix which separates the uterus and cervix into two. March 21, 2009 Brandi and Jon (father) found out they were going to have a child. First ultra sound, they learned she was pregnant on the right side of the uterus and 6 weeks along. As 10 weeks hit Brandi started to have complications. At 24 weeks, Brandi started having pains in her lower pelvic area on the right side. At first they were passed off as pains from the uterus stretching. The pains worsened and moved into her right flank area. The Dr decided to run some tests and sent her to Riverside on Aug 5th. At that time they realized that her cervix has shortened and they put her on bed rest right away. On August 7th, her Dr was in the room giving her discharge instructions when her water suddenly broke. At this point the baby's head was already in her cervix. They rushed her to labor and delivery and after a few tries with pushing and no success, she was given an emergency c-section.
Jaxon Bartolini was born premature at 1lb, 11oz. He was flown to Comer Children's Hospital at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Jaxon was put on a ventilator until he was 15 weeks old. He then weighed 5lbs, 3oz. He still requires supplemental oxygen. He was diagnosed with Rickets (a deficiency disease that affects the young during the period of skeletal growth, is characterized especially by soft and deformed bones). He is on several vitamins for the Rickets along with anti-seizure and anti-reflux medicines. He has also had eye and heart surgery. Jaxon was able to come home to his family on Dec 24, 2009.
All Proceeds go to the Bartolini family. Please bring your car, truck, motorcycle, or any vehicle that you like to show and join us at our event. We hope to see you there.
