Zamarripa Family Recovery Fund

As some of you know these past couple of days have been really hard for our family. Although they were not due until September 28, on Friday, August 21st, we were blessed with twin boys; Xen and Blaze. My brother, and our family anxiously awaited the babies' arrival and it finally came. They both weighed a little under 4 lbs but they were healthy and strong and that was all that mattered to us. Xen was born with a cleft lip and palete, which we were aware of. We were told that this was treatable and could be repaired within the first year or two of life. That was the last of the worries though, those boys were loved by many and nothing could change that.
Unfortunately, there were complications for the mother, Tiana, after the twins' birth. She unknowingly had been suffering through a disease her entire pregnancy called HELLP Syndrome. http://www.preeclampsia.org/health-information/hellp-syndrome and as a result had to also suffer through something that is called Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation, which is explained here  https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000573.htm . By the grace of God she made it through both complications miraculously. We have been told that the recovery will be a long one and to take it day by day. Everything happened so fast, since the babies due date wasn't until late-September not everything was ready for them before they came. We have asked for prayer and now we ask for help. Jose has missed work since the babies' birth because he has been by their side 24/7. We are asking for anything, from $1 to whatever amount you are able to give. This money will be used for medical expenses if any, rent, bills for their home, and for Xen and Blaze who will be in the hospital for about a month. The goal was estimated from their rent and bills for 3 months but of course we're hoping that they will all be home before then. The plan was to breastfeed the babies but we were told that that will not be an option for at least 2 months after the mother recovers so now they have to buy formula until they can breastfeed or get milk from pumping. If you are unable to donate, please help us by praying for our family and sharing this fund. We greatly appreciate anything and everything that has helped and will help her recover. Thank you.
