The Emma Rose Wade Fund

On Tuesday, August 28th, this world lost one of its brightest smiles when Ellen Henry Wade passed on due to complications from childbirth. 

In the months leading up to this day, Ellen was vibrant with anticipation.  As she put it in her unique way, she was "ready to meet this little girl that gives me sausage fingers and kicks me all night!!!".  She and Jason could not wait to bring little Emma Rose into this world and to introduce her to the family and friends they held so dear. 

Unfortunately after a short time at home with her new, young family, complications arose that ultimately took Ellen's beautiful soul from us all... but most importantly, from her daughter. 

If there is a silver lining, it is that Emma is strong, beautiful, healthy, and has an amazing father in Jason. He is ready to do everything he can to give her the life that he and Ellen had planned. Unfortunately, that task just got a little taller without his wife at his side.

Tragedies like this are part of life, but the challenge is always easier to face when we have support from our loved ones.  We humbly ask the friends and family of Ellen and Jason to help provide that support and give Emma the life she deserves. 

All proceeds from this trust will go directly to the family and will be used in helping Emma Rose carry on Ellen's legacy. Thank you for any contribution you share.
