The BeliEve Foundation is incredible because they have helped us when we were deeply in need. At our 20th week OB visit, we found out that our baby was missing her lungs, bladder, kidneys, amniotic fluid, and had an underdeveloped heart. We were devastated to learn that even if she survived labor, she would not live for long outside of my womb. With heavy hearts, we had to make funeral preparations before she was born. We were shocked to find out how much a funeral and burial would cost for just a tiny infant. We wanted her to be buried at a cemetery with other babies who went to Heaven but the cost was outside of our budget.

We were connected with The BeliEve Foundation and decided to submit an application. If approved, The BeliEve Foundation would cover either medical costs or funeral costs, depending on what we needed. A day or two after our baby’s birth and passing, we found out that our application was approved! The BeliEve Foundation covered the entire cost for our baby’s funeral and burial! Having the financial burden lifted from our shoulders allowed us to breathe easier and focus on grieving. We are so thankful that The BeliEve Foundation has been a light for us in this time of darkness.
