Raised by 674 people in 34 months

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)

I want to just say that I was in a similar situation last year but not as disadvantaged as John and that I am thankful to the people who supported us through gofundme to take my son back home and lay him to rest. I am humbled to say its now my turn to make a contribution and share with my friends on social media so they can also help John and his families to bring Natasha and their son back home.

Yanks are also helping. My other daughter just lost her son and nearly her life to HELLP. Notherwise much, but I had to contribute. No family should have to go through this and certainly not alone.

We lost our son in July to HELLP, and we were close to losing my wife as well. I can't imagine the pain and loss of losing both. I am so sorry for your loss and wish you kindness and solace for the future.
