August 22nd, James & Malia Brackpool prematurely welcomed Ben Nathaniel to this world - 13 weeks early. 

He only weighed 2 lbs, 11 oz at birth.  While everyone is more than grateful that Malia survived the life-threatening delivery, Baby Ben’s health is still at risk. 

As a result of being a ‘preemie’, Baby Ben has developed respiratory distress and cardiac complications.

Ben will be required to reach full development with the expert care and attention of the excellent doctors and nurses at the Regina General NICU. 

 Until that time and as much as possible, Malia will be staying at the Rawlco Centre Hostel, but at $450/month+GST (before things like groceries and amenities)  the cost quickly adds up, as do multiple trips to and from Regina. 

 Having two school-aged children in Weyburn and one critically ill baby in hospital in Regina has stretched this little family emotionally and financially. 

This GoFundMe account has been created to give the friends, family and community of James and Malia a way to support them in a very tangible and helpful way.

This being my first GoFundMe I have been watching with amazement... This is such a cool platform. I just want to add my "thank you" to you all who gave to the Brackpools what was in your heart to give. "Ring those phones"

Ben still has roughly just under two months staying in the NICU unless they decide he can come out sooner. As of last week he seems to have turned a corner and just needs to grow. His eye test went well this week. Thanks again for everyone’s support.
