Ethan Skaggs Memorial Fund

Ethan Henry Skaggs was born into this world on November 17, 2017 at 1:24 a.m. and was healed and home with Jesus on November 20, 2017 at 2:56 p.m.  The family spent 3 glorious days with him and he forever changed their lives.
Ethan was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 soon after birth and fought so hard for his parents and siblings.  Though his condition was not known before birth, God knew the plans He had for Ethan.  His family is so thankful for God's unconditional love and the promise of Heaven with Ethan and Jesus.

Parents are never prepared to bury their child and the costs of burial plots, funeral arrangements, lost wages,  and nicu medical expenses will be overwhelming for a family grieving their baby boy.

100% of the dontations given will go directly to the Skaggs family to help during this very difficult time.  Any donation amount big or small is appreciated and the family cannot say thank you enough for the outpouring of love they have received.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, texts, phone calls, meals, and donations.  If you would like to stay connected to the family please visit their blog for updates on how they are remembering their precious baby.

Please continue to wrap your arms around the Skaggs family today, tomorrow, and forever.
