About this fundraiser

My sweet strong grandson was called home to the lord on the evening of January 17th. He was born September 2022 with severe Di George syndrome which caused a severe heart defect amond other medical issues. He spent his first year of life in the nicu undergoing multiple surgeries, procedures and tests. 

Throughout it all he was strong, sassy and determined. As long as he had his truck and either his mama or his GG (grandma) he was the happiest little guy. He was a quick learner and knew how to communicate in sign language and his expressive eyebrows very well. He always told his care givers they were doing a good job with a sign he made himself despise how much he may have disliked what they needed to do. 

He was able to come home for the first time a week past his first birthday. The following few months were spent making the most of every day between hospital admissions for infections.

  Finally his heart decided it couldn’t take anymore and the lord called him home to his loving arms. 

Our hearts are shattered by his sudden loss. And we are further heartbroken that we can’t afford the funeral our little one so very much deserves, weare asking for help. Any donated funds remaining after the funeral has been paid for will go to grief counselling for his mum.
