Welcome to Send Love to Cohen! Here you can help us mend Cohen’s little heart.


In Oct. 2009, I received a joyful phone call from one of my best friends, Megan… She was pregnant! This baby was conceived out of pure love after a long battle with PCOS. We were all over the moon happy for Megan & Brent. At 10 weeks, Baby “M” became Baby Cohen, a bouncing, happy baby BOY! Everything was wonderful and perfect, until it wasn’t… At 22 weeks, Megan & Brent were devastated to find out that their little Cohen has CHD, Congenital Heart Defect. He has four defects to be exact; four defects that individually are manageable, but that together are very rare and very dangerous. Thus, our friends began on the long journey to fix Cohen’s broken heart. It is a journey that will take them away from their friends and family to have Baby Cohen at the best children’s hospital in the country. It will be a journey of several open heart surgeries and great expense.

If you have landed on this blog it is because you've heard about baby Cohen and the fight his family is facing to hopefully mend his little heart. The family is being surrounded with love, support and prayers, and they are all eternally grateful. There is so much you can do to help through prayer, support and donations. Many of you have contacted Megan about making donations to help. Her friends and family have created some ways for you to help, they are listed below.

Countdown to Cohen!

1 DAY!!!!!

Tomorrow morning Megan will be delivering sweet baby Cohen at 7:30am via C-Section. I am asking each and everyone of you to please say and extra prayer (or two) for Cohen, Megan, Brent, and all the Doctors & nurses that will be caring for his tiny little heart.
 
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace 
as you trust in him, so that you may overflow 
with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Roman 15:13

 If you would leave a comment telling Megan that you are praying for her and from where... I think it would be extremely powerful to see that so many people from all over the country (world?) are praying for her sweet baby! Thank you all!

Megan - Kyle, Lucy, Penny, and I are praying for you, Brent and Cohen, everyday, from Tulsa! We can't wait for you to bring sweet Cohen home so we can love on him EVERYDAY! Penny can't wait to meet her future husband... She told me ;-)

  10. Megan, Brent & Precious Cohen,

    Just wanted you to know that our whole family has been praying for you, and we will be continuing to do so as the doctors fix your baby boy up! Please let us know if there is anything at all we can do to help you guys or Lisa out. I can't wait to see pictures of Cohen! He is going to be perfect, and God is going to heal his little heart, I truly truly believe.

  16. Megan,

    I've been following your blog for quite awhile now. I just wanted to let you know I have been praying for you all of your pregnancy. I pray that the doctor's who receive little Cohen will know exactly what to do. I pray that God will be there in the delivery room with you and His will be done, no matter what the outcome. I pray that the nurses will be full of knowledge in taking care of you and little Cohen. I pray for your husband, he will have a hard day tomorrow as well, not only is his son coming into the world with heart defects but his wife is having surgery. I pray that tomorrow will go the best ever expected and that a miracle happens. Praying for you Megan!

    Brandi :o)
