Baby Liam’s Medical Fund

Liam Patrick Isaacs arrived 2 months early on October 21, 2017. Born at just 30 weeks by emergency C-section, he weighed only 2 lbs 10.3 ounces. Described as “feisty” by the hospital staff, Liam fought to survive.

His parents, Ben & Lauribeth Isaacs, prayerfully stayed by Liam’s side as he struggled to survive. They watched helplessly as he battled pneumonia, staff infections, cysts and collapsed lungs. More than once, doctors informed his parents that there was nothing more they could do and to prepare themselves for the likelihood that Liam would not make it through the night. His parents asked for prayer. Many friends, family and even strangers responded to the call and Liam rallied to fight another day. But sadly, in the early morning hours of November 14th, Liam passed away. He was just over 3 weeks old.

Having a premature baby was unexpected and the medical costs have been adding up. According to a Thomson Reuters study for March of Dimes, the average healthcare for premature infants is nearly 11 times more costly than that for newborns without complications.

Lauribeth was recovering from her emergency c-section and Ben had to call off of work numerous times to support and care for his wife during her healing process as well as stand watch over his infant son who was fighting for survival day by day. Without either parent able to work full time, the Isaacs were unable to earn an income and yet the bills and medical costs continued to pile up.

The Issacs have insurance, however there is an out of pocket limit of $7,000 that they are responsible for. Then there are the funeral costs to consider. Please think about making a donation today to help this family. Thank you.
