Goodbye, Baby Eleanor

On Monday morning, November 13, ten-day-old Eleanor "Ellie" Love Kropchuck was nursing at her mother's breast when she stopped breathing. Her mommy, Caitlin, immediately screamed for her husband, a paramedic, who performed CPR and revived her. After being evaluated at the hospital, they were not immediately aware of what had happened, but she was stable. The staff began arranging to have her airlifted to a Dallas hospital. 45 minutes later, I received word from Caitlin that Ellie had no brain activity, and they were advised to discontinue care. She remained on life support until her grandparents could come say goodbye, and then she passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior.

Caitlin and Matthew are absolute servants to countless people. During this time of grief, if you could please consider giving to help ease the burden of final expenses, please do!

Caitlin dedicated a great deal of her time to helping to educate others about how to navigate through the complications and struggles associated with the MTHFR gene mutation and the risks associated with the CDC recommended vaccination schedule which can be especially devastating to those with the common MTHFR gene mutation.

Matthew risks his life and saved others as a paramedic and firefighter.

Caitlin and Matthew are also parents to toddlers Caroline and Timothy.

Please pray for peace, comfort, understanding, and answers as they try to make sense of this devastating loss.
