Support for Amber & Luke MacWilliams

$55,855 of $55,000 goal

Raised by 273 people in 2 months
Created April 18, 2019

Our hearts are breaking for the MacWilliams family right now. Mackenzie has been a loving husband to Amber, a father to 7 month old Luke, a son, a brother, an uncle, and a friend. 

A few days ago Mac suffered a seizure that caused oxygen deprivation causing heart failure. The swelling in his brain is too severe, and the Doctors have informed the family that the Mac they know and love is gone. He is being moved to palliative care until his body passes naturally.

We know he is with His Savior in Heaven, but this is an incredible loss, especially for Amber who stays home full time with Luke. Let us join together as a community and allow her the time to grieve without having to worry about paying the bills. 

All proceeds raised will go to Amber and Luke as she navigates this storm. For those unable to support financially, we ask that you pray. Pray without ceasing. 

I have named Shannon Fenton as the beneficiary so that she can withdraw funds for Amber. 

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." /Revelation 21:4

I didn't want to post an update on the situation until a family member made this information public. Shannon (Mackenzie's sister) posted the following just this morning, April 25th:

Thank you very much for all of your love, prayers and support. As many of you have seen and heard from others, Mac has passed. We miss him very, very much. There's a very big hole in our families (MacWilliams and Coolidges) now. Amber has asked to write something that I will post here from her and us, which is why no one in the family has posted much here.

When she is ready, I will share her words. This is an incredibly difficult time for us all. We appreciate and see all of your comments, even if we do not reply at this time.

Thank you again.

I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all who have opened your hearts AND bank accounts to help Amber and family during this difficult time. Money seems so inconsequential during storms like this, but if it can allow her to breath even a little bit easier, it's well worth it! Let's keep the momentum going.

Latest from Sherry-Lynne on April 19th:

"Our dear, fun, giggly, joyous son who poured such love on his family and friends still clings stubbornly to life, in his strong body, but his brain has swollen beyond reclamation. My son, oh my son our hearts are shattered in a million fragments. With the help of family and friends we will pick up those pieces; but I fear we will not be whole again, until that day in Heaven when we meet , and we see your radiant smile and hear your call,” Hello beautiful people!”
