Carter's future after unexpected death of mother

Late Thursday night, January 7th, Carter's mom, Kara, unexpectedly went into cardiac arrest. She was 37 weeks pregnant and, unfortunately, lost the baby. After six long days on life support, Kara passed away on Thursday, January 14th. This tragedy has left seven year old Carter without his only parent and baby sister.

With all of the emotional pain and stress that a death brings, it also brings financial burdens. In addition to funeral costs and medical bills, a majority of these funds will be used to support Carter as he navigates this tragedy and enters this uncertain chapter in his life.

It is in these times of loss and sadness when you see people coming together to help one another make it through, to support the people we care for. We are thankful for any support you may be able to provide Carter. We also encourage everyone to keep Carter in their thoughts and prayers.
