Baby Sloan and Mommy (Amanda Kastor)

The Kastor Family needs our help. Sweet little Sloan is at All Children's hospital, recovering from  Pertussis, a serious and sometimes life threatening illness, especially for newborns.

Her mommy, Amanda, has already taken time off work for her birth and also while she herself was recovering from the same illness.  Amanda had to go back to work and was asking for volunteers to go and stay with baby Sloan so she isn't alone.

I believe Mom should be with baby and that money shouldn't keep them apart. Let's help Amanda by giving her the means to pay her bills while she takes off work, so she can be with her baby in the hospital. I figured even if everyone contributes what it would cost them in gas to drive up to All Children's to visit, or what it would cost to bring the family a nutritious meal, we can raise enough money to help ease the financial burden and give mom and baby more time together.

Being a mother myself, I simply can't imagine the feeling of being separated from my seriously ill newborn.

Please consider making a contribution of any kind for this sweet little girl and her mommy!
