Help bring Natasha and her baby hom
Natasha and her husband John were on vacation in Las Vegas from Austraila when tradgy struck. Natasha was 26 weeks pregnant when she developed HELLP Syndrome.
Natasha delivered her baby stillborn, and at present is in Hospital fighting for her life as her kidneys and heart are shutting down. (Edit to add Natasha passed away on Sunday May 15th with John at her side)
Being that they were only ment to be here untill Wednesday, her husband John is trying to juggle being with his wife as well as deal with arrangments for their baby.
They are in need of funds to support John as he continues to stay in America to be with Natasha, as well as to pay medical costs incurred.
Natasha has 3 other children at home in Austraila.
Anything that you can give for this family would be gratefully appricated in this time of need.
I will update as we get more details.
HELLP syndrome is a life-threatening pregnancy complication usually considered to be a variant of preeclampsia. Both conditions usually occur during the later stages of pregnancy, or sometimes after childbirth.
H (hemolysis, which is the breaking down of red blood cells)
EL (elevated liver enzymes)
LP (low platelet count)
Natasha and baby will be back home in Australia on Monday 30th May.
We would like thank everyone for their support, donations and kind words towards John and his family throughout this hard and difficult time.
