Baby Noah And His Mom Need Your Help

I am Johann Maza, Noah's father. We are raising money to be able to pay all the hospital bills and be able to get back home with enough resources to pay the rest of our bills including rent. My wife Monica, is going through the process to get Canadian Residence but doesn't have it yet. So all the medical bills for her are going to be paid out of our own pocket. My son Noah, was born at 35 weeks and is currently staying at St. Catharines Hospital (Niagara Health System) and so are we. Once I fix a misunderstanding with the hospital he will have his Health Card. However, we will have to pay enormous amounts of money for my wife's stay, labour, and doctor bills that we were not expecting just yet (just to get an idea, they consider her from outside of the country so one room for one night is $2900 not counting doctor fees and medicine). On top of it all we had to use our hydro and rent money to pay for transport, food and even epidural anesthetic. And we will have to get a few things to ensure the good health of our baby like an electric pump for my wife and smaller things that add up to a 'smaller' sum of money we can't come up with at the moment. I am Johann, a working man that is struggling with having to leave his son at the hospital. I requested all my vacation days at work to be with my son and takig care of my wife, as well as figuring everything out. I would never ask for help unless it was completely necessary and one of my last resources. I just want my wife not to worry about a thing, and my beautiful Noah to go home as a healthy baby so that we can show him that the world is a beautiful place much larger than these for walls. Thank you! Even reading and getting our story out there helps. Thanks for taking the time.
