Help Natalie & Cooper With Uncertain Future

Hi, my name is Jill Lancaster and I am fundraising for my niece Natalie Lester Hagar and grandnephew Cooper after the sudden loss of her husband and his father. Married just recently and caring for a newborn alone, Natalie has not only lost the love of her life Matt, but also much needed second income, family health insurance and company daycare are all gone now, too because they were provided by Matt's job. Natalie and 1-month-old Cooper are living with her parents until she can get back on her feet emotionally and financially. Natalie is on maternity leave from her job as a Medical Assistant and had plans to get her Nursing degree. Now she is faced with no permanent place to live or daycare so she can go back to work. We are looking for financial donations to help pay for Natalie and Cooper's chance to get back on their feet following this tragic loss. They will need funds for rent, food, health insurance, daycare and the hope that Natalie can still take some courses toward her nursing degree so she can take better care of herself and her family. Please give whatever you can.
