23 w/o brave Baby B, mother & father need our help

We are trying to raise money in hopes of helping baby Brandon, his mother (Alicia Salas), and his father (Brandon Dailey).  Alicia gave birth to beautiful baby Brandon at just 23 weeks, 3 days gestation after onset of life-threatening preeclampsia.  Baby B was delivered by C-section on 2/22/19.   He is expected to have a lengthy NICU stay of approximately 6 months.  We are hoping to raise money to help the family with the cost of medical bills, lodging as he is 2 hours away from their home, travel cost and any other need the family may have.  This family has a long road ahead of them and they will have many ups and downs.   Any donation received will have immediate benefit.  As a mother, it breaks my heart to see my daughter going through this.  I feel helpless.  However, maybe if I can raise a little money to help, I will feel as though I am doing something that will allow them to have a little less stress so that they can focus on their baby and being able to bring him home.  I want to thank everyone in advance who donates and also those who are unable to donate but still spread the word.  It means more than words can express.

With heart-felt thanks,
