Though word has begun to travel far and wide concerning this tragedy thanks to the power of social media and the tight-knit family of the Church, I wanted to make sure to include the Badger Catholic Family as well. Joe and Melissa are a wonderful young Catholic couple who are both graduates of Franciscan University of Steubenville and are parishioners at St. Anthony's Parish in Milwaukee where they were married. The GoFundMe Account was set up by Joe's brother Chris, who is also a wonderful young Catholic man. Your prayers are greatly needed, and any contribution you can make would be welcomed.
Below is from their Go Fund Me page:
As most of you know Lily Stancato suffered some complications during her birth and was without oxygen for a significant amount of time. Lily has been in the NICU at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee and has received intensive care during her stay. As you can imagine, medical expenses for the family of Lily are expensive. Our goal is to help off-set the costs of medical care for the family. If you personally know the Father and Mother (Joseph and Melissa), you know that they are both special individuals with hearts of goodwill and service toward others. Please do what you can to support them in this trying time by giving as much as you can. Every little bit helps. If you wish to donate directly please contact Chris at 262-960-9913.
Even though Lily has only been with us for a number of days she has touched the hearts of all who have visited her and know of her story. As the Uncle and godfather of Lily I cannot begin to thank you enough for your love and support! I have not told Joseph and Melissa the campaign has started yet so if/when you choose to share with others please keep that in mind. I don't want them to even think about bills yet. Please continue to pray for Lily and her family. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
