BENEFITING: LINCOLN PARK ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY
Many of you may already be aware of Don and Christine Oakes' daughter's birth. Their daughter Avery arrived to us earlier than planned. A fund has been designed to provide the new parents support for their premature baby daughter Avery.
For those of you who are new to this story, Don and Christine were expecting the birth of their first child to arrive in May. Unfortunately, medical intervention failed to delay Avery's birth. Since Avery is about three months premature, she is starting her life with underdeveloped organs. A great focus of Avery's medical concerns have been with her heart and lungs. Baby Avery is fighting as hard as she can to thrive. Don and Christine are vigilantly surrounding their daughter with love and encouragement.
Though both Don and Christine maintain careers that provide stable incomes with benefits, medical expenses will no doubt accumulate. This fund will assist with any medical expenses not covered by insurance and any additional unplanned costs that may arise. Your prayers are deeply appreciated as Avery struggles to improve in health. Any amount you can afford will be a blessing. Thank you very much for your support and help!
