Supporting Janet and Claude



Janet and Claude are going through the hardest thing that any person has to - the death of their dear and beloved son, Ares Daren Taylor. He passed away suddenly on August 28 from a rare and undiagnosed heart condition.

“We are absolutely destroyed. He was our sweetest thing, he was our everything. Living every day to make that little boy as healthy and happy as we could was our entire purpose. We are so thankful we spent every second of every day of his little life with him.”  - Janet

Janet and Claude are just beginning the long grieving process. There are so many of us who want to support them, and finding ways to do that is difficult when they are so far from most of us. Together we can help them through this by lifting the financial burden, so that they may focus right now on healing and loving each other.
