Delco couple celebrates life of 'Bucket List Baby' Shane

Posted: Updated:
 Less than four hours after Shane Michael Haley was born, the newborn boy passed away. 

Jenna Gassew and Dan Haley welcomed their son early Thursday morning, celebrating the birth of a Pennsylvania newborn whose diagnosis in the womb with a rare, terminal condition generated support and prayers from legions of online followers.

"Baby Shane is here!!" read a post on the Delaware County parents' Facebook page, Prayers for Shane, where they shared status updates of their unborn son's travels, which they called his bucket list. Half a million people are following their #shanesbucketlist updates.

The newborn has anencephaly, a rare birth defectthat results in babies being born without parts of their brain and skull. Most anencephalic babies live only a few hours after they are born.
