You may know that the family has suffered a truly heartbreaking event. Ben's sister in law ( Kathryn Whitmer) suffered a stroke while 27 weeks pregnant with triplets. She delivered the babies at 29 weeks and they are currently in NICU at NorthWestern Hospital. Kathyryn underwent emergency brain surgery which was tragically unsuccessful. She passed away on Friday, June 8th.
Ben's brother Charlie and the entire family have all our love and support. We would like to further provide support by way of kind donations. Please give if you can in whatever amount you are comfortable with. Every donation will help provide financial assistance to cover medical bills, ease the burden of care for the 3 babies and hopefully give the family some assistance while they recover from this loss.
The funeral service will be held this Saturday morning at St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Chicago. Here is a link to the obituary and services: www.smithcorcoran.com/obituary/kathryn-j-whitmer/
Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
