Austin Raymond Lange

Hello Everyone,
  My family and I are reaching out for help.  My youngest brother Sam Lange and his wife Erin rushed to the UC hospital last Friday, where their son made an unexpected, but much welcomed, entrance at only 29 weeks.   As of now mom is doing well and recovering from surgery.   Austin is in NICU currently at UC, where he will stay until at least June of this year.   He has faced his challenges, but he is a fighter.  My family is asking for help to raise money for the medical expenses they will incur.   For those unaware NICU costs roughly $3,000 a day, while Sam and Erin both work full time and have health insurance, that will only cover a fraction of what they may be facing.  

Those of you that don't know Sam, at only 23 years old, he is a Funeral home Director for a local funeral home inin Cincinna OH, as well as a volunteer fire fighter for two local cities in KY.  He has spent a majority of his young adult life helping others in some of their most difficult times.  Please find it in your heart to help Sam and Erin focus on the important things at hand.  

Although the financial obligations ahead of them may seem the most stressful, we also ask for any donations of clothes, diapers, and of course prayers as these will be needed as well due to Austin being born 11 weeks premature.  Any help is greatly appreciated and God Bless.  

Sam and Erin have created a care page where you can follow Austin's story with daily updates.
