This family contact us in April of 2011 through a social worker at the NICU where their baby had been staying. Below is an excerpt from their story.
Baby Garcia passed away suddenly after a lengthy, complicated hospital stay. He was on peritoneal dialysis and respiratory support due to his complex medical condition. His mother is single with three other young children at home. She has been working through a temp service, but is struggling financially. Her own mother died several years ago and her family support is quite limited. She is connected with a funeral home and needs to raise funds to have Baby Garcia’s service as planned. Family members have tried to help but were unable to come up with enough money to cover the burial service fees. $1000 is the amount that is needed to cover the remainder that is owed to the funeral home.
