Liv's Legacy

November 2016 was supposed to be a joyous time for Jennifer and Justin. They were preparing to welcome their first child into the world, Olivia Marie Yarham.  Unfortunately, unforseen complications denied Olivia the chance to be raised by 2 loving individuals. Jennifer and Justin were left without their sweet angel.

When looking back on that most difficult time there were a few things that helped them through. University Hospital owns a "Cuddle Cot," a machine that preserves stillborn babies so that they can get to spend time with their parents.  We have contacted the manufacturer and would like to purchase an donate a "Cuddle Cot" in Olivia's honor.  We hope that this is the first of many that we can supply to hospitals around the country.

We are seeking $4000 to cover the cost and any fees associated with it.  Any donations over that amount will be sent to "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" a non-profit that provides photos of stillborns and their parents.  This is a charity that Jen and Justin are passionate about. They recently joined parents in a similar situation in Columbus for the walk sponsored by "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep." 

Jennifer will be turning 40 on July 28th and nothing would be better than presenting these donations, in Olivia's name, at that time.  Please, please, please do not let Jennifer or Justin know. This is meant to be a surprise.  We ask that you bring this link to anyone that may be able to donate.  Whatever amount you can contribute will go a long way to making this a reality. Thank you all so much for your support!!
