Now that I have children of my own, I am even more aware of just how precious the lives of little ones are. I recently learned about a young couple that are in need of our help. I just can’t even imagine what they are going through and continue to face each and every day. My heart aches for them.
I ask that if you are able to help this family that you please do. Whether it be through prayer, donation, spreading the word or all of the above. (All of the above!!!)
Below is their story. Please read and come together to help Baby Brooks and the Brolsma family.
First time parents Owen and Allie Brolsma have been on an emotional roller coaster starting twenty weeks into pregnancy when they found out their brand new baby would be born with a birth defect. It was discovered that Baby Brooks would be born with Congenital Heart Disease. 1 in 120 babies are born with a heart defect.
Successful treatments of congenital heart defects require highly specialized care, which meant that Owen and Allie would have to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada to give birth to their first child and get him the care he would need immediately after breathing his first breath.
The benefit described below is to help the Brolsma family with the growing pile of medical bills for Brooks. Allie hopes to return to teaching in Virginia City this fall and Owen hopes to be able to stay home with Brooks to ensure he gets the 24 hour care he needs. All the money raised from this benefit is given directly to the Brolsma family, minus the initial costs of running the tournament.
