Meet This Month's Legendairy Little, Ellie

Each month we donate a portion of our sales to a child with medical needs through the Legendairy Littles program. 

Ellie was born at 27 weeks 5 days in August 2018. After birth, she developed two brain bleeds, E.coli sepsis, NEC, hydrocephalus and E.coli meningitis. During her 5 month stay in the NICU she had 6 brain surgeries and a feeding tube placed. She later developed epilepsy. In January 2020, Ellie became extremely sick and later developed E.coli meningitis again due to an abscess in her abdomen. She was placed into a medically induced coma and was in the PICU for 3 months. During her stay she had 20 more brain surgeries. She was very sick with infections doing damage to her body. Thankfully Ellie is now at home recovering.  

However due to her extensive brain damage, she needs therapies that insurance will not cover. The donation from the Legendairy Littles program will be used to help cover the therapy Ellie needs to recover from her extensive hospital stays, medical bills and medication cost. If you would like to directly help Ellie’s family with these costs, you may do so at their GoFundMe:
