It is with great sadness that I share with you the following news. As some of you may know, coach Deno Ellis and wife Ellen were expecting their second child. Along with daughter Savannah, Deno and Ellen were excited to welcome their son Liam into the world in a few short weeks. However, on Thursday morning baby Liam’s heart mysteriously stopped beating. Doctors induced labor and Ellen delivered a precious baby boy. Unfortunately, Liam had already been called home.

These events have undoubtedly left the family shocked, and extremely heartbroken. In this time of grief, we kindly ask that you keep Deno, Ellen and young Savannah in your thoughts and prayers.

In solidarity with Deno, we have set up this fundraising campaign to assist the family with their medical expenses. We humbly ask you to join us in supporting them in any way you can. The Ellis family greatly appreciates your kindness amid this difficult time.
