January 2nd, 2017 - January 13, 2018
One year-old son to Tyler Armour and Marilyn Tenorio, grandson to Sharon Pfaff.
My name is Summer, and I’m a cousin to this beautiful family who has unfortunately just experienced the sudden, unexpected loss of their infant son.
“Baby Ty” was born just over one year ago on January 2nd, 2017. He was born at only 23 weeks, was 1.8 lbs, and a true “miracle” baby right from the start. After he was born, he spent 260 days in the hospital, where it was touch and go at times. Baby Ty was finally discharged home on September 19th. From this moment, he took huge strides forward and truly began to thrive, grow, smile, laugh, and continue to light up his parents’ world. Doctors and nurses were amazed at how he defied the odds, and didn’t only survive, but truly THRIVED.
On the evening of January 12th, while being cared for by his home health nurse when his parents were away, a very unfortunate accident occurred where his trach was dislodged leading to a cardiopulmonary arrest. With special thanks to the staff at Randalls Children's Hospital (where he was known and loved), Baby Ty’s family was able to buy more time to prepare their hearts and say goodbye to their angel.
Baby Ty passed away peacefully on January 13th in the arms of his mother, with his father, grandmother, and other family close by.
Due to such unexpected and tragic circumstances coupled with the extravagant price of funeral expenses, I have set up this GoFundMe page in order to help ease the financial burden for such a young family. My hope is that they can take time to mourn without additional and financial stressors.
100% of funds that are raised will go directly towards funeral expenses, a memorial service to honor this precious baby’s life, and care for Tyler, Marilyn, and Sharon as they grieve this loss.
Any donation no matter how big or small will ease this financial pressure - if you do not have the financial means to donate, prayers and support for this family during such a difficult time will be greatly appreciated. Words can not express our gratitude.
Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to read about Baby Ty’s miraculous life.
“I’ll hold you in my heart, until I can hold you in heaven.”
We all love you so much, Baby Ty - you will be forever in our hearts. xo
