Unexpected Miracles and an Angel NEED your support

Donation protected
Please consider donating to this worthy family. They desperately need funds for medical bills for the babies and for Chesley May's funeral costs.



From Ashley:
"My beautiful daughter, Chesley May, was called home to Heaven after a courageous six months of life. Her passing leaves a huge emptiness in the hearts of all of us; her parents, her siblings, her family and the NICU team at Mass General hospital. Day in and day out she fought and fought and continued to beat the odds. Her strength was unwavering. Each time she overcame an obstacle we were so excited thinking that finally all the quads would be home together soon. We were positive that she would live a long and healthy life. We will forever miss her laughing face, her funny little air leak sounds, and the sparkle in her big beautiful eyes. We are so proud of her and know that she is at peace."

Wait!! What?! Quadruplets?! The ultrasound technician had to recheck before confirming that she was pregnant with quadruplets. Two sets of identical twins (2 boys and 2 girls) are unique. Only about 150 sets of quadruplets and higher-order multiples are born in the United States each year. Most often, they happen when a parent has been using assisted reproduction. In Ashley's case, her quadruplets are considered spontaneous. Naturally occurring.

Ashley and her boyfriend are thrilled and overwhelmed. They already have four children between them. The expenses, even now, are adding up. They need help. LOTS OF HELP! She lives on a part-time hairdresser's income, and he's a small engine mechanic. They will need lots of support as quadruplets require hospital trips, home care, lots of diapers, and other necessities. The average cost to raise one child is 17k per year. The average cost for quadruplets is above 68k. These expenses do not include specialized treatments for preemies, which they will be.

The babies are due in October; however, for the health and well-being of Ashley and her babies, they will most likely be delivered in mid-August. Ashley cannot return to work as these tiny miracles will need round-the-clock care for most of their first year. Your donations will help support these little miracles' needs.
Any donations will be gratefully accepted.

Thank you so much for all of your help and your kindness.
