On Sunday, June 30th I awoke to about the worse news possible; my daughter Abby who was 7 weeks pregnant lost her baby. Abby had recently been to the doctor to check on the baby and everything was fine. However on Sunday morning she suffered a miscarriage.
According to many people including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Abby was not a mother yet, she simple had a clump of cells inside her womb. We know however that this is far from the truth; Abby is a mom who was looking forward to one day holding her child in her arms.
I asked Abby if she had decided on a name? She had, Aspen Rita Raiff. Abby has also decided that she is going to honor Aspen’s life by giving her a proper funeral. Aspen is Abby’s daughter, not her clump of cells.
Abby and her boyfriend have had some rough times, they are struggling but working hard to try and build a life. They really don’t have much money and cannot afford the costs of the funeral.
Stand True is committed to help them with the costs of the funeral to honor the life of Aspen. We need your help.
Stand True was about to launch a fundraiser to take several youth to Pro-life Summer Camp in a few weeks, now we must raise money also for the costs of the funeral and doctors bills for Abby.
The funeral costs, which include the gravesite, burial costs and headstone, are only $750. Her emergency room visit will be around $500. A local minister is doing the service at no charge. Aspen will be buried very close to her uncle, Benjamin. There will be a few other costs involved, which we cannot calculate accurately yet.
If you would like to help us provide a beautiful funeral for Aspen it would be greatly appreciated. Our goal for the cost of the funeral and sending kids to pro-life Summer Camp in DC is about $3,000.
