Help Baby Zane and Family

25836030_1512261123.7858_funddescriptionHi! My name is Daniel and I'm a friend of the Triplett family. 

On November 30th, myself, Nadia, her heavily pregnant sister Natasha, and her husband Jason were involved in a terrible car crash in Oakland. After the accident, doctors felt that it was best to deliver Natasha’s baby via emergency c-section, only 5 hours after arriving from the airport for a small vacation.

As a result, baby Zane Taylor Triplett was born 12 weeks early. He was quickly transported to the children’s hospital where he remains in the NICU until he’s ready to go back home to Virginia.

This has resulted in Natasha and Jason unexpectedly now living in California, 2,800 miles away from home and family, for the next 2-3 months. They have a 3-year-old daughter, Zarah, who they’ll need to go back and visit periodically also.

With huge medical bills, legal bills, accommodation, transport, out of work costs, airfare, food, etc., the costs are mounting fast and anything at this point will help alleviate a lot of stress and worry.

Natasha and Jason were totally thrown into this terrible event in a matter of seconds and their whole lives have done a complete 180.
Our bruises and pain are nothing compared to the confusion, heartbreak, stress and upset they are facing.

Please help Nadia and I make this life-changing and traumatic experience a bit easier on baby Zane and the Triplett family.

The funds will be used for many things including medical bills, airfare for Jason to go back and forth to Virginia, accommodation until Zane is released, daily transportation to and from the children's hospital, food, clothing, and money to cover out of work costs.

Note: I, Daniel Purcell, am the only authorized person to withdraw funds from GoFundMe. Funds will be securely placed in my bank account. I will then write a check for to Natasha & Jason Triplett.
