On Tuesday, May 22, all of us that knew Amber and Tommy, were heartbroken to hear of the events that took place. After 38 weeks of an otherwise healthy pregnancy, Amber was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious by her husband. A CT scan revealed a blood clot in her brain. An emergency C-Section was performed and a beautiful baby girl, Adeline Elizabeth, was introduced to the world. Amber was immediately brought back for emergency brain surgery to remove the clot. The surgery was a success, but two days later due to swelling of the brain, Amber was brought back into surgery to temporarily remove a piece of her skull to relieve pressure. During these days and in the days following (and many tears later) everyone really showed an overwhelming amount of love, support, and admiration for Amber and Tommy. Even those who have never met this family have been greatly impacted by their story. Amber continues to prove that she is a fighter, and is making small improvements each day. As we continue to pray for Amber's health and comfort for her entire family, God continues to diligently work behind the scenes. However, our work is not done just yet.
As most of you can imagine, the out-of-pocket expenses for this family will be substantial. In addition to your love, support, and prayers, we are asking for your help with their medical expenses. With each donation, we can slowly chip away at the financial burden that this tragedy has laid on this family. Thank you for your support for this cause!
