Jaden's Funeral Fund

Today, we grieve the loss of my sweet 13 year old cousin, Jaden. Jaden was born a fighter and fought fearlessly his whole life. On May 10, 2016 Jaden was brought to the ER because he was battling a nasty stomach bug, but wasn't getting any better with time and was dehydrated. Our family found out his kindneys took a hit and were no longer working properly. In addition, he had a infection in his lungs. The second day in the hospital, Jaden wasn't able to breath on his own so they had to put him on a ventilator. During this time many other issues arose and Jaden ended up on the ventilator for 8 days. As I said before, Jaden was a fighter, and not too long after things took a turn for the worse, he began to talk and sign again. However, he started suffering from seizures. Shortly after the doctor's informed us that Jaden has suffered from multiple seizures and possibly a stroke! Jaden's body had suffered tremendously causing him not to be able to walk,talk, eat or go to the bathroom on his own. On Friday July 15,2016 Jaden went home from the hospital. One short year later, Jaden was readmitted into the hospital for a UTI. Things quickly spiraled out of control and Jaden's body suffered from a septic infection. He fought a tough fight, but lost the battle early this morning July 27th, 2017. It has been a trying year for his mother, dad, brothers, and sisters (especially his twin sister, Jada). It has especially difficult for his father, Eric, to juggle work, and being up at the hospital on top of making sure Jada is taken care of. His mother, Robyn deeply devoted her life to taking care of Jaden and has not been able to work for sometime because of it. We will forever miss Jaden's beautiful smile and contagious energy, that always lit up a room. Our family would deeply appreciate any help we can get to cover the costs of the funeral. Thank you for taking the time to hear our story!
Anything helps.
