On April 7th, Dustin and Stacy were happy to announce the birth of a baby girl, Brinley. They went to the hospital excited, and the unthinkable happened! Baby Brinley was diagnosed with Mosaic Trisomy 13 – a rare genetic disease that affected her heart, lungs, and kidneys.
Currently, Dustin is managing to split his time between coming to the stores and helping you; his loyal customers, and his supporting technicians… and travelling back up to St. Louis to see Stacy and Baby Brinley, and give his support there as well! The man is truly a hero.
Stacy is staying in an RV a short distance from the hospital, and pulling 12-18 hours a day trying to be there for her baby.
Baby Brinley is doing better at this point, but still has a rocky road ahead, with several necessary surgeries. It is unknown for certain when she will be able to come home, but doctors hope that with special monitoring, that might occur in the next few weeks. Until then, Dustin is straining between supporting his family in St. Louis, supporting our stores in the Springfield area, and our Seeburg locations in the Arkansas market.
We know he and Stacy and Baby Brinley can use our, and your support! Our local alliance of car car facilities and professionals, have started a fundraiser specifically for Baby Brinley…. and you can help out. Any amount you can donate will mean the world for these two hurting parents! Check it out!
