Tiptons to host fund raiser for Children’s Hospital

Most parents are fortunate enough that they do not ever have to bear the anguish of burying their child.  But young Bowling Green parents, Greg and Mindy Tipton experienced just that last November.

Their daughter, Abigale, was born with VACTERL Association, a chromosome defect that is incredibly rare. Abby also had HLHS-hypoplastic left-heart syndrome, where the left side of her heart was very small and underdeveloped. VACTERL Association is a non-random association of birth defects that affect random organs of the body.
