Update:Memorial Fund for Baby Emily

It is with heartfelt sorrow to share that Baby Emily Sue Jacques has recently joined the angels in heaven.
She passed from this world into the next on Wednesday, June 28th.
Emily had CHD which is Congenital Heart Defect, along wih HLHS- which is Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. This serious heart condition prevented her from developing and growing into a healthy baby girl.

Michelle and Gary Jacques experienced many struggles including 10+ years of IVF, other medical issues, and trouble that came with their pregnancy process.
Their family had not been successful every time they tried in the past, having lost their son Dylan a few years ago immediately when he was born.
Their struggles just made this new birth of Emily so special and a true blessing for The Jacques family. 

 However, Baby Emily was not born without severe medical problems.  Emily remained in the NIC  ICU unit  at Boston Children's Cardiac Intensive Care Hospital since her birth.  Michelle was hospitalized BEFORE she was born to watch and monitor both she and Emily closely.  They were there for over 7 weeks until she just passed on Wednesday.

We need strong, faithful prayers for their family at this tragic and difficult time.  
  
 Your support will be used to start a Memorial fund for Emily, and to help honor her lasting memory. 

Thank you
❤️ Family and Friends ❤️
