Support Caleb and Caiden Derestil

Today December 27, 2014 Fastina Derestil went to her forever home leaving behind Caleb and Caiden as well as many siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and countless friends.    Fastina was a newly wed (August 25, 2013) just starting her journey as a wife to Caleb and a new mommy to Caiden (December 11, 2014). Fastina gave birth to Caiden via c-section on the 11th of December, while still in the hospital Fastina experienced internal bleeding and went back into surgery on the 15th of December.   Fastina came home to start the joyous and beautiful journey of being a new mom on the 17th of December.  Fastina was rushed to the hospital last night for bleeding that surfaced again.   Fastina lost the fight today after complications of bleeding.   Fastina came to the US to have heart surgery through a program called Haitian Hearts at the tender age of 12.  Fastina has been a brave soul and fighter through multiple heart surgerys and starting a new life in another country.   We are hoping to raise money for Caleb to support him in the journey ahead of raising a newborn, funeral expenses, and time off work.
