Support Savannah & Ethan after the Loss of Baby Leon

Donation protected
Leon Katz, a beautiful and healthy six-week old baby boy, was tragically killed under horrific circumstances on June 16, 2024. First-time parents Savannah and Ethan joyfully welcomed him and his twin brother Ari into the world in May 2024. A trusted family friend has been arrested for homicide, child endangerment, and aggravated assault that the boys experienced.

In addition to coping with the unbearable loss of their beloved son Leon, Savannah and Ethan are facing significant financial burdens. Funds raised will cover funeral expenses, medical bills resulting from injuries sustained by both Leon and Ari, essential baby supplies, and relocation costs as they navigate this difficult time.

Leon will always be remembered as a happy, smiley, goofy baby boy. His untimely and tragic death has deeply impacted the Pittsburgh community, occurring on Ethan's first Father's Day. While financial support is crucial, Ethan, Savannah, and Ari are profoundly grateful for the outpouring of love they have received. Your messages of support mean the world to them as they begin to heal from this unimaginable loss. Thank you for keeping the Katz family in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly challenging journey.
