For Troy The Boy


I never in a million years thought I would be sharing or posting this.. I lost my 5 month and 4 day old baby on February 14th to RSV... not only did he have RSV but he had 2 strains of it.. we were told this was very rare by his doctor... unfortunately after the amount of times me and Jay took him to hospital, his pediatrician and a childs walk in clinic (multiple times) we were told he was fine and was getting better because he was still my happy baby, still eating, and didnt run a fever anymore. this organization that was made by my family is not only for me and Jay anymore (by MY choice) but I will be and am going to be setting up an RSV foundation from all the money that's going towards this. No family should ever have to go through what I am going through. Most donations that are being funded, I will make sure that this awful virus will be securely thought through and any other mother with their child fighting this virus will have help from all of these donations. I am not asking for any money for me and Jason during this awful tragedy and difficult time because all we want is our baby back and unfortunately that cannot happen.... if there is anything I want to come out of this it is that any mother, father, gaurdian that has a child, infant dealing with this awful virus that this will help them with any cost. I cannot stress this virus enough. I also want to add that if you take your baby to the doctors, hospital, pediatrician, because your baby is having symptoms you fight to have them admitted. We tried, as parents, and we trusted every licensed doctor, and unfortunately my one and only baby passed away. Anybody and everybody please share this, we want to help anybody we can. Pray for baby Troy and his unfortunate passing. And I hope this helps not just us, but anybody else. ❤❤❤❤
Rest In The Sweetest Peace My Baby Boy. Mommy and Daddy Love you So Much And Always Will.❤


On February 14th the world experienced a loss like no other. Our beloved Troy Owen Pheland left us unexpectedly at Five months old. While we come together to provide support and love to Kim and Jay in this unfair adjustment, we see unimaginable hardship. This is an effort to lift any kind of burden off of their shoulders due to unexpected expenses and loss of wages. Please help raise them up as they lean on a loving family and community like no other.
