Shining Light Raising Hope, is raising money to support local children’s hospitals and the palliative care they offer to families who have suffered infant or child loss. We are doing a silent auction fundraiser to support these families through Blank Children’s (and the children's hospital where we currently live - HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital, Green Bay). The event will be held at Green Bay Distillery on March 30, 2019. Event Details as well as a link to purchase tickets can be found on our Facebook page – Shining Light Raising Hope.
Shining Light Raising Hope is the story of our family. On March 30, 2009, we welcomed our daughter, Ellen, into the world at Blank Children’s Hospital (Des Moines, IA). We had the privilege of holding her for 8 ½ hours after birth until she went to heaven. She was born with a terminal sickness called Anencephaly. We can attest to the pain and suffering that families face in the weeks and months after loss of a child. That’s why we are holding this benefit to assist families at this critical time in their life.
Any donation you can offer, large or small, is greatly appreciated. Together we can make a difference in the lives of those families who are hurting after suffering the tragic loss of a child.
