On April 21st, 2016 Azriel gained her Angel wings and with the help of the local radio Mgr Michael Rock & his co morning DJ Christine Fox from FUN 107 they have been spreading the word of this families unthinkable time. News Channel 10WJAR has been a great help and support also. Without them and everyone donating and sharing we would have never met our first goal in a day!!!! I have doubled the goal let's pull together and keep posting it and reach as many people as we can so the family can take the time needed to stay home and grieve and help Azriels younger siblings get through this. When the time comes that the family needs to pay for her funeral needs Iris is the only one with access to the funds so donate with out fear that the family will not get the money! thank you everyone, they aren't in a place to thank anyone so please take mine as it came from them <3 <3

Jason and Iris Estabrooks of Somerset have been living every parent’s nightmare since Saturday April 16th.  Their 11 year old daughter, Azriel, was at a birthday party when she suffered a serious accident.  The Estabrooks were told that their daughter had choked on a “big marshmallow” at the birthday party, fell down, and suffered a severe head injury.  Her parents have been by her side at pediatric intensive care unit at a nearby hospital since Saturday.  Azriel remains in critical condition.  “All we want is her to wake up and look at us with her beautiful green eyes,” says Iris.

Azriel is a student at the North Elementary School in Somerset.  Her father Jason is a retired Army veteran.

She is fighting for her life by a very thin thread right now. My family and I are reaching out in hopes of prayer and support. Every second every minute and every hour is critical for her. She is strong and putting up a fight but it’s not looking good for her. So please we ask for all the prayers and positive energy for our baby.  –Iris Estabrooks

"We keep asking everyone to pray and light candles -- positive energy," Iris said. "Whatever religion you have, whatever higher power you have, just keep our daughter in your thoughts and your mind and hope for that one little miracle. She's a fighter. She is."

We need to show support and help with the finacial burden so both her parents can stay with her and not worry about working and how the bills are going to be paid!! this little girl should be at home enjoying spring break with her younger brother and sister, not in a hospital bed fighting for her life!!! Please send prayers and help the family anyway you can!!!!! 

Purple is Azriels favorite color so the family is wearing purple to show support for her so maybe we can too!!!

Unfortunatly Heaven called their their Angel back home  4/21/2016.

The family is grieving the loss of their beautiful little girl! She will always be with them in their hearts and watching over them and especially her younger brother and sister.

I am pleased that with all of your help and the donations that were given to the family in other ways the funeral expenses has been covered. So I will leave this open until Saturday afternoon incase there is any last minute donors. But I did my part and it's now time to concentrate on my health again!! I would help again in a heartbeat for any child and family suffering this loss!!! Fly high Azriel and guide your siblings on their path in life

Well the day is finally here....the day the day that everyone that loved this sweet beautiful angel will say goodbye to her body. Her soul and smile will live on and she will send little reminders to her loved ones that she is still with them in spirit. Her Family will just have to do their best to bond together and with you added prayers for strength get thru the day. Then tomorrow the healing process will begin. The road will be hard but it is a necessary path that Iris & Jason will need to go on in order to make sure their younger children can heal and find a new normal way to live. Life will never be the same without their missing piece of their family puzzle but it will get a little easier everyday. SoI ask everyone to take a few minutes and pray for Azriel & more importantly her family today.

I would like to thank everyone again that has helped so generously help this family during a very dark time in their lives. If it wasn't for our local Radio station being the only news media reporting on the unthinkable nightmare that happened no one would have ever know to pray for the family. Plus the Mgr of the Station Michael Rock was such a great help to us to reach and surpass our goal so quickly because once he shared the link the donations started pouring in. The family is still in a state of shock and is refusing all interviews because only one TV station WJAR 10 reported on Azriel while she was alive and for that we are also grateful for them getting the word out so we would like to extend a special thank you to those two news media sources. Tomorrow everyone will say their final goodbyes to Azriels body but she will always be in their hearts and thoughts. She has one of those smiles in every photo that makes you smile back at her even if you didn't know, she will look over her family and one day they will all meet again. So please keep the prayers coming so the family can get thru even more difficult day tomorrow.....and thank you all!!!!
