My great niece, Halley Ellen Harles, was born at 8 a.m. Thursday morning (11/8) via c-section at the Feather River Hospital in Paradise, CA, a mere 10 minutes before the mandatory evacuation of the town due to the Camp Fire. As many now know, the town has since been destroyed by the fire. Halley was the last baby to be born at that hospital.
10 minutes after her birth, her daddy, Bret Harles, rode with a deputy and a nurse to Enloe Hospital in Chico to take the baby to safety as quickly as possible. Mom, my niece Heather Roebuck, was to be transported via ambulance just behind them.
The family was reunited and safe at the Oroville Hospital since late that night after a series of very harrowing and unimaginable events. We are all so thankful they are safe and sound, and Halley is healthy!
My family is humbly asking for help to replace some of their things lost at the hospital due to the fire. During the fire they lost their car, the new car seat, all of their packed clothes and things needed for a new baby. Thankfully they didn’t lose a home today, and our hearts and thoughts are with all of those that lost theirs.
We thank you, in advance, for any help you’re able to offer, whether it be items or monetary help. We know that they will be very grateful no matter what. Thank you.
