First Responder Family battling Covid

Dear family and friends of First Responders,
Lynn Carpenter, a volunteer firefighter, was seven months pregnant with her first child when she contracted Covid-19. She has been on a ventilator for 18 days now, and her baby was delivered via C-section 9 1/2 weeks early. Baby Dawsyn is doing well, and Lynn is slowly improving, but her husband, Austin, an EMT, has missed quite a bit of work, and their bills are mounting to astronomical highs. They have insurance, but the ventilator costs about $5000/day.  This isn't including the medications, hospital stay, lost work, etc.
If ever a family deserved help from the public, it's this one. These are people that save lives on a daily basis and run into danger without a second thought. The whole Carpenter family, including the grandparents, are volunteer firefighters and EMTs. If you have ever wanted to give back to a first responder in need, now's your chance. Any little bit helps, so please donate to the Carpenter family and help show their newborn son, Dawsyn, that the world is full of generous people.
