Dear family, dear friends,
On March 23, we had the pleasure of learning about the birth of a little treasure.
Rachael was born with her little 2kilo150 for 47cm.
Our little niece arrived 1 month earlier and with some health problems.
Unfortunately, she had to be operated on just after giving birth because of esophageal atresia.
His esophagus was not connected to his stomach but it was connected to the trachea which goes to the lungs, so emergency operation in another hospital was necessary.
Today Rachael is still under heavy treatment to calm the pain and receives intensive care. Little by little, she is recovering from this operation with great courage and strength.
You can imagine how traumatic these events can be for new young parents, to be separated from their infant after only a few minutes of life and then see them for just a few hours a day, surrounded by machines and threads and to see her suffer without being able to do anything ...
The Covid-19 does not help the situation given the strict rules for parents with the frustration of not being able to hug her to console her, to nestle against her, nor him kissing ...
Rachael is still in the hospital and her parents go to see her every day even though the hospital is an hour's drive away.
We are making this fund to be able to help them in these trying times.
We feel helpless in the face of their sadness and pain but thanks to this small gesture we wish to be able to support them in our way.
Rachael will be undergoing further surgeries but we don't know when yet. In these early years she has a high risk of suffocation and parents will need to be prepared in case this happens.
The money collected will allow them to do first aid training or other training allowing them to be prepared if this kind of situation happens.
The money collected can be used for several other things:
- pay the costs incurred to go to / from the hospital (trips, food and others)
- allow Corentin to take unpaid leave or parental leave in order to allow her to be as close as possible to her family and to be able to accompany his wife and daughter.
- take a hotel right next to the hospital to avoid going back and forth to relieve the mother who had to have an emergency caesarean section and therefore relatively reduced mobility.
- a household help
- buy additional material for Rachael to prepare for his return home, such as an anti-reflux mattress for example.
- Daily expenses
Please note that there are no small donations. Every smaller gesture will be of great help, and we will appreciate every participation.
We thank you in advance for your support, your benevolence and your solidarity in helping this family to build itself despite the difficulties without worrying about the rest.
Thanks for reading us.
