Praying for baby Ridge

My cousin and her husband have a sweet 10 week old baby boy named Ridge. Ridge has been in the hospital for 23 days now due to an extremely rare disease (only 30 people in the WORLD have this disease). Ridge has lesions in his little stomach and GI tract that cause him to bleed out. They noticed the symptoms because his diapers and spit up were bloody. The only treatment is blood tranfusions and steroids. Ridge is O negative and that is apparently a rare blood type and so my cousin is asking people with O negative blood to donate in the name of Ridge Cary.

Please pray for Ridge's complete healing from this disease. His parents are amazing and finding strength in the Lord. They are asking for prayers from everyone on behalf of their son. Below is a clip of my cousin on the news regarding Ridge and his illness.
