I'm raising money to help Henry's family cover increasing costs during a really challenging time. Please take the time to share and support as you are able.
It's with a heavy heart that I let you know that little Henry passed away on Tuesday. This is an incredibly difficult time for the family, but I encourage you to still donate what you can and share, as they still need a lot of help.
Baby Henry Arthur Gomez was born to Ashley and Phil on January 12, 2020. After a tough pregnancy, the doctors decided to deliver by c-section to avoid further complications.
This little guy was strong and resilient, but unfortunately he was born with five different defects in his heart. Henry had several procedures, and even open-heart surgery. After 6 weeks of fighting, he passed away and is now at rest.
Things were tough financially for his parents even before he was born, but now, after weeks of Ashley recovering and Phil being barely able to work between constant trips to the hospital and trying to move their family into his mom's home after having to give up their apartment, things are especially hard. They're behind on bills (even before Henry was born), having to spend tons of money on traveling and eating out (because of the constant traveling), and have all sorts of various other costs building up due to this prolonged hospital stay. Now that Henry has passed on, there will be additional costs to consider.
Ashley and Phil would never ask people for money of their own accord, which is why I've made this fundraiser. My hope is that people can share and donate, even small amounts, to ease this burden for this small, precious family.
It's been a rough few weeks for Henry and his parents, but he's still fighting hard!
Today is a very big day, as he is having a procedure done and being taken off life support. The doctors are worried because. the life support might not be doing its job, so they're going to try letting him breathe on his own.
Please continue to keep him and his family in your thoughts, and please donate any small amount or share the fundraiser to make sure everyone continues to get taken care of during this difficult time!
WOW! We've passed $1000! Let's try to keep this momentum going and help give Henry's family some stability in this difficult time.
Most recent update: After his open heart surgery, Henry spent a while with some drainage tubes to keep fluid out of his chest cavity. Now he's down to only a feeding tube, which is great progress! There still isn't a definite on when he'll get to go home, but he's been doing well in the meantime. For now, the main priority has been keeping fluid from building up in his right lung, and he's still on oxygen.
