Grief Fund for Parents of AJ Damone

Anyone who knows Samantha and Mark knows that they were so excited for the birth of their baby boy, Adrian John. Though they had yet to meet, they knew he had a lot of personality and one heck of a kick. 
His father had just built the crib he would grow into, the last of the baby shower invites, already sent. 

But at a little over 9 months, at Samantha's final ultrasound, they learned that something had gone wrong.
Baby AJ's heart had stopped beating due to what was later discovered to be a "true knot" in the umbilical chord. Shortly after, Sam was informed that she would have to deliver her stillborn baby. 

Immediately rushed to NCH's Birthing Center, Samantha spent three full days in labor, given that the baby could not assist. Mark and close family were by her side at every moment.

 Your contribution to this campaign goes directly to the parents of baby AJ Damone. It goes towards their hospital bills, the cremation, and their eventual grief counseling expenses.

More importantly, your financial support of any size is just one way of showing this young couple that you are here for them after inarguably the hardest experience they've yet to bear.  

Thank you.
