As Mamas, we know that we have two universal fears – that something will happen to our kids or something will happen to us and we won’t be able to help our kids. Last weekend, beloved mom of two, Katie Jacobs-Branch, lost her life after giving birth just 7 weeks prior and now we want to help her children in the same way that we would want others to help our own.
On June 23, 2019, Katie tragically passed away in her sleep, leaving behind a devoted husband, Isaac Branch, and two beautiful little girls, 7-week-old Fallon and 18-month-old Olivia. Katie was truly a bright light, a class-act mother, an amazing wife, a loving daughter and sister, and the most loyal, compassionate friend anyone could ever ask for.
Katie’s quick witted sense of humor and warm, nurturing nature is already so deeply missed. All of her family and friends are all gathering together to help support the Jacobs and Branch family through this incredibly difficult Time, but they need more help than that. They need people to spread the word, to share the fund, to send them love, prayers, and to give them whatever they can spare to ease the load that they are facing. They need Mamas.
We are sharing this fundraiser with you because we feel the pain of this family so deeply – as any Mamas would – and we know that together we can help the Jacobs and Branch family by providing them with as much stability and security as possible for Fallon and Olivia (i.e. childcare, housing, transportation, health care, basic needs, etc.), as we know this would have been Katie’s number one priority, as well as cover funeral expenses for Katie.
This family is going through a nightmare and our heart is breaking thinking about these two babies that just lost their mom. We can’t imagine, but we hope we can help.
Please donate if you’re able to, and if you can’t, please help spread the word by sharing this post. Together we can help these girls grow up to be the kind, strong, independent, and generous souls that their mother knew they would become.
