We hear a lot about how important breastmilk is for babies–but here is a baby for whom mother’s milk is literally a life and death issue.
Jaeli has a rare genetic condition and will not tolerate formula. Her mom is breastfeeding and pumping but it is not enough. What baby Jaeli needs is time and calories and that is what breastmilk will give her.
But her mom’s state Medicaid will not cover this need and banked breastmilk, especially the high-calorie milk Jaeli needs, is costly.
But we won’t let a baby suffer and starve. Oh, no we won’t.
Ange England took up the cause and issued a challenge to the netizens of the social media world: Will you feed this baby? Moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other caring people answered her call and donated enough for baby Jaeli to have milk through the end of October.
Baby Jaeli needs more.
Do you know someone at a company that could sponsor a week’s or month’s worth of feedings?
Working together, we can give provide sustenance to a baby.
