Amelia Crystal Rodriguez was born on March 24, 2017. She came into the world as a miracle as she was born extremely premature at only 24 weeks and 5 days, weighing only 1lb 10 oz. She endured many medical procedures, but battled through until God called her home on October 13, 2017. She was only 6 1/2 months old.
Although we were heartbroken to lose our daughter, we had to find meaning amidst all of the heartache. We decided to start this foundation to help those fighting the same battle Amelia and our family fought for so many months. We want to be able to provide items that children in the NICU and PICU need as well as supporting their families through that difficult time, whether it be help with food, gas, a place to stay, or if needed, funeral expenses.
We were fortunate to have the help of family and friends and know that not everyone is lucky enough to have the support system we had. We hope to be that support system for those who need us.
Thank you for your support in helping us honor our daughter’s memory in such a beautiful way.
