Hope - Hayden Nolan Carver
Description
From Amanda: Hayden Nolan Carver was born June 12th, 2011 weighing 7lbs 3ozs 18in long by C-section. He was perfect in every way. The only thing that he had was some mild jaundice and was able to go home 4 days later. We realized at a very young age that something wasn't right. Hayden's sister Kayleigh is only 14 months older so we knew things to look for. After months of seeing specialist and doing genetic testing, we found out that Hayden had a very rare disorder called 17q25.2q25.3 Duplication 17q25.3 Deletion. Only 20-25 people world-wide are known to have this disorder! The only things that are known about this disorder are that it can cause heart, brain, and kidney issues along with hypotonia, large head, and developmental delay. Hayden is affected in all these areas plus many others. We are currently being seen at MUSC Children’s Hospital with a total of 13 specialists and the possibility to see three more soon! He has had several hospitalizations and currently is admitted as I'm writing this. His longest stay was 27 days. The days are unpredictable and when we’re admitted we never know how long we'll be here. November 12th Hayden will finally get his second opinion from the specialist at Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia. We've waited months to get in here and it can't come fast enough! Hayden's dad Jeff is the only one providing for our family at this time. I had to quit my job and school so I could take care of Hayden. He has therapy four times a week plus doctor appointments and that’s if were not in the hospital. We’ve come to the point where we are struggling to get by on our own and are asking that if you can help.


If you have any questions feel free to email me at amanda_hatchell@yahoo.com or message Hayden's page and I'll do my best to get back to you. P.s. my last name is now Carver : )

I have followed Hayden for over a year and a half and truly feel for the family. Hayden's  life is unpredictable. He is mainly fed by tubing and requires frequent venting of his internal organs. He is in/out of the hospital and works hard in therapy. But, through it all, this child always, ALWAYS, has a smile on his face! His parents have been through so much. About a year ago, Jeff, fell at work and was seriously injured. He was in the hospital and fighting with Workman's Compensation for awhile. Somehow, they always pull through and you have to admire that. I hope that a cure can be uncovered for Hayden. I wish financially things would get better for them. This family had more heart and soul then anyone I know.

Hayden is my nephew and one of the sweetest boys you will ever meet!  He has faced so many issues, as has his family, but he is always happy (if he's not sick)!  This is a very wonderful family!

Hope for Hayden on Ellen Nation! Hayden deserves awareness and more of us should help too! I've been following Hayden for a very long time..at least two years and he is the most happiest little boy I've ever seen despite his health issues. Mom and Dad try really hard to get answers about his diagnosis and I can tell you that from what I've read through out the years nothing is ever set on stone for him. He endures many trips to the hospital and very recently dad was in an accident at work that left him in the hospital for a while and mom was left to fend for her husband and her two babies. They need financial help and anything would greatly be appreciated. My Lashes has had my heart for some time now....and deserves all the help in the world.

I have been following Hayden Carver for awhile now.....he has stolen my heart!  He and his family have been through so much and to stay as happy and strong like they do is so inspirational!  He deserves to be on the Ellen Show if nothing more than to spread awareness on such a rare disorder!

I have followed Hayden since he was an infant. My best friend knows his family. What wasn't put in the description is that last year their sole provider, Jeff, fell through a skylight while working. By the grace of God he survived, but has not been able to work, so I assume they are living on workman's comp, but because Amanda never whines or complains, we don't know the full affect of his injuries.  Please, Ellen, out of all the people you have on your show, they could use your help. He is right up there with Tayt

I believe you should invite Hayden to your show Ellen. He is the most handsome little boy around. He always has a smile no matter what kind of day he's having. He 's a super hero fighter. Always struggling with every day things. But he does it with a smile. He has a very loving & caring family with a gorgeous sister who looks out for him. Hayden is one amazing little boy.

Hayden and his family are Amazing!! They have been through so much! Yet have managed to keep there faith! This little boy needs this! He needs others to fight for him like his family does! The more people who are aware of him and his medical issues, the more likely there will be help found for him! One look at this little boys eyes and you're hooked!!
