Support for Dwight and Santara

As many of you know, Dwight and Santara were expecting a baby due in late December, early January. On Saturday, September 09, 2017, Santara began to develop severe medical complications which required hospitalization at Charlotte Presbyterian Hospital. Santara had developed HELLP syndrome, a deadly illness for the mother, which required an emergency delivery of the baby at 21-22 weeks. 
On September 11th, Santara and Dwight miraculously welcomed Luna Edith McGlynn into the world, however her condition was critical. She was 14.6 oz and 10 inches long and was kicking and crying. Dwight and Santara rejoiced in being able to see and hear their daughter. 
On September 12th, Luna's conditioned declined and she passed away surrounded by family that evening. Dwight and Santara, though saddened by the loss of their daugther, took comfort in the 22 hours they could spend with her and get to know her. 
Dwight and Santara recently relocated to NC from VA and have started new jobs within the past month.  Because of the event and week stay in the hospital with their daughter and recovering afterward, they have accumulated a variety of expenses, both medical and personal. 

The families and friends of Santara and Dwight have set up this GoFundMe as a way to express their support and sympathies for the couple as they go through this season of grieving. We appreciate all prayers and thoughts sent to the couple. If you would like to donate to help alleviate any financial acruments the two have, it would be appreciated. 

Thank you all for your support, thoughts, messages, and prayers during this hard time.
