On March 22, 2019 a mother's worst nightmare unfolded. Late in the evening Emily gave birth to twins boys. Her first son (Sonny) is a robust and healthy blessing after a very difficult birth. Unfortunately the birth of the second baby (Ronan) took an unimaginable turn and Emily was rushed to the hospital where she had an emergency c-section. Ronan had no heartbeat. For 15 minutes doctors tried to bring life to his newborn body but couldn't do it. But a miracle occurred and seconds after doctors decided to stop trying to save Ronan, his heart began to beat. 

Out of respect for Emily's pain and privacy I won’t share the traumatic events that unfolded next but baby Ronan remains hooked up to life support in the most fragile and critical condition possible. His chances of survival are painfully low. Continued tests show very little brain activity.

No mother should lose a child. No mother should have to make the horrific decision that Emily is facing.

Emily is the owner of the real food recipe website She is also the author of 4 cookbooks. Not only that, she is one of the best humans on this planet. She is an amazing mother to her two daughters, the most supportive wife there is, and the type of friend everyone should have in life.

Emily is going to need a lot of time to heal, both physically and emotionally. She will not be able to resume work on her website for months to come. In addition, she is facing a financial burden of undetermined amounts. Lack of income plus unforeseen medical bills plus emotional trauma means that Emily and her family need our help.
