This family contacted our Foundation in June of this year. Below is a brief excerpt from their story.
Baby Abigail has been in the NICU at Helen Devos since her birth. She was born at 28 weeks gestation and is likely to be ready for discharge in 1-2 weeks. During Abigail’s stay, the family (Abigail has a two year old brother) has resided locally at Ronald McDonald in order to visit daily. They let their apartment lease lapse (one bedroom apt) for various reasons—including cost and due to need for a larger apartment. Abigail’s mom has now found a new apartment but is facing financial burdens somewhat unexpectedly. She needs $210.00 for the security deposit on the new apartment. This is the amount she is requesting.
How We Helped
We were able to raise the money this mother needed for her new apartment as well as provide meal passes for her during her baby’s stay in the NICU.
