Support for Emily and Damon

Many of you know that Damon, Emily, and Imogen have been happily expecting a new addition to their family. 

A routine trip to the midwife turned into a rushed trip to the hospital, when they could not find a heartbeat. On Wednesday, September 27th, they said goodbye to their new baby boy, Jesse Waitkus, who was stillborn. 

In addition to the heartbreak and grief over the loss of their new baby, they are also expecting medical bills of up to 15k.

I am setting up this GoFundMe to hopefully help aleviate some of the stress of having to find a way to pay for the hospital visit, the midwife support, and Jesse's cremation, and allow the family space to care for themselves.
