Roman Dean Augustus Palmer became an angel of Heaven on Tuesday, June 14, 2016. Roman was born on April 15, 2016 to Travis and Ashlee Palmer. Roman was a Heart Warrior, he was born with severe Ebstein’s Anomaly. He was a strong courageous boy having had gone through 2 open heart surgeries at 5 & 6 days old and 5 procedures throughout his time here. Bringing Roman home was the happiest day in his family’s life. He brought so much joy to everyone and he loved being outdoors. But our loss upon this earth, was surely Heaven’s gain and though his heart no longer beats, his memory lives within. I have started this fundraiser not only in the hopes to raise enough money for my dear cousins family to pay for bills, food and remaining funeral cost, but to also bring awareness to Ebstein's Anomaly. A little about this heart defect, Ebstein's anomaly is a congenital heart defect in which the septal and posterior leaflets of the tricuspid valve are displaced towards the apex of the right ventricle of the heart. (I know that is many words, that some may not understand.) Some kids can live with this and maintain a fairly normal life with a few visits to their doctor, and that was our hopes for Roman. For his family to watch him grow, to play ball, to see him get his first car, to go to college and watch him succeed in life, and to see him get married. But sadly Roman passed away a day before he turned two months old. Roman fought a difficult battle, undergoing many surgery's in his first week of life, he was a WARRIOR, he truly had a heart of Gold and he put the power of love in perspective for those who did know him, and for those who followed his journey through Facebook. Romans parents, Ashlee and Travis, and his older brother Colt, who is going to be 3 years of age this July is a truly strong family. Any bit of help is A LOT of help, this money is not going to go down the drain or sit in a bank account, this money will be put to bills, food and funeral costs. And as this beautiful family strides forward, I hope we can all come together and support and help them through this difficult time. In honor of Roman Dean Augustus Palmer; Rest in Peace baby boy!!! Gone but never EVER forgotten!! We love you!!
