Help for The Ostwalt Family

These two beautiful children were born into a loving family, seemingly with their whole lives ahead of them. Unfortunately, there was a different plan in place for them. Both sister and brother were diagnosed with an ultra rare, terminal illness called Sanfilippo Syndrome. Sweet Whitney just lost her battle and gained her beautiful wings. Immediately following her funeral, brother Jordan was admitted to the PICU with pneumonia. Just before Whit got really sick, one of her younger sisters ended up hospitalized because of her appendix. This amazing family has had their lives rocked. They have been at the hospital nonstop since the holidays. They were already a one income home, and now that one income hasn't been coming in because mom and dad both needed to be present while their baby girl spent her last days on this Earth. On top of that, the family vehicle has broken down leaving the family devastated after paying for a funeral (Sanfilippo is a pre existing condition so insurance was not available for either of the children) and mom and dad had that full bill on top of everything else. They are in dire need of help or I would not be coming to you. Help is needed in all areas from grocies, to household supplies, to utilities, to getting the van fixed, house payment...you name it, they're in full need here. It is heart breaking enough to lose one child. To know you've just buried one, the other immeditely gets sent to PICU, one is still healing after major surgery, and the only income is no longer there? Please, find it in your heart to donate. A donation as little as $5 adds up when everyone pitches in. At the very least, please share this on your page, talk about the family, help us find them resources!!
