Support for Legend’s Ohana

The death of a baby is like a stone cast into the stillness of a quiet pool; the concentric ripples of despair sweep out in all directions, affecting many, many people.
~John DeFrain

Our dear friends Chloe and Nick Pestana suffered the greatest loss December 23, 2017. Their sweet 3 year old son Legend had a rare birth defect that no one knew about where his brain had a tangle of veins and arteries causing a sudden hemorrhage. Doctors tried everything to stabilize but were unable to for this beautiful little boy. Legend transcended this life and went on to be an angel . This is a pain that is impossible to erase, but love and support can help them bear it.

Legend was Chloe and Nick’s third and youngest child. Legend was immensely loved by his two beautiful older sisters, who’s hearts are also incredibly broken, as one can imagine. I ask that we all come together and give what we can to help our friends survive this terrible loss. As you could imagine there are many monetary costs in this situation, and going back to work to support daily life seems unbearable at this time. Please help in any way you can to help ease this amazing family's financial burden as they grieve . This money will go to covering daunting medical bills, end of life costs, lost work time, and supporting their two daughters.

They are in need of your prayers, positive thoughts, and love and healing vibrations.
