On June 12, 2019, Ashley and Brian Cotter welcomed their daughter, Ruby June,
into the world. The joy they experienced was unknown before that very
moment. However, on September 4, 2019, less than three months later, their joy
was replaced with fear, horror, and uncertainty. Ruby appeared lethargic
and her body temperature was low. Upon calling the pediatrician, they were told
to bring her directly to the emergency room at Stony Brook, and by the time they
arrived, she was blue. Once she was stabilized, she was transported to
New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. After days of testing, she was
diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy
. This will be a long road ahead of them
with many unpaid bills. With that in mind, I am hoping to raise $100,000
to help them
out with all these expenses.
Thank you in advance for all your generous donations. I know that the Cotter
family appreciates each and every one of you.
