    Renee and husband Charles lost their daughter Amanda Grace a little over six year ago to complications from anencephaly, a neural tube defect that prevented their daughter’s skull and brain from developing properly.

    Amanda Grace Coffey was delivered by cesarean at Creighton University Medical Center on April 23, 2004. She lived just over 27 hours and died surrounded by her mother, father and seven brothers and sisters.

    Anencephaly occurs in just three of every 10,000 live births in the United States.

    Half of babies born with anencephaly die within 10 days of birth. In very rare cases anencephalic babies live more than a month.
