Premature Baby's Family Needs Help

Mike and Bridget Ochs were on vacation in the OuterBanks ( 9 hours from home) when the new mommy began to have vision problems. They rushed to the nearest hospital and determined the cause was preeclampsia. To ensure the mothers survival the only cure was to deliver the baby 3 months early. They were transferred to a children's hospital to receive the best care, but this is still hours away from family, friends, and most importantly : support. They are currently at a Ronald McDonald House near the hospital but have a growing number of bills that were unexpected as they plan to stay there for 3+ months. Both Mike and Bridget are teachers in the Baltimore City Public School System and have undoubtedly touched thousands of lives. This is our chance to give back to two amazing, selfless individuals. This may be Mike and Bridget's only hope for a child which makes this story even more heart wrenching when you know the details. They are in many people's prayers but need your help in this time of need.Our goal is only 2,000.00 to help ease a new families troubles, but anything will help. Thank you for reading and look forward to giving everyone updates.
