My brother Matti recently became a father for the first time to twins. After 5 years of IVF treatment he and his wife finally had their dream. They were blessed enough to be pregnant with twins.
Christie, Matti’s wife had a healthy pregnancy with no complications and at the end of her 8th month, went into labour. Things quickly escalated and she had to have an emergency C-Section.
While two beautiful babies were born healthy and happy, Christie experienced major complications during surgery. The doctors fought tirelessly to save her life but sadly my beloved sister in law passed in the early hours of the following morning.
Matti’s whole world has been turned upside down and I’m setting up this account to ease the pressure while he grieves and tries to do his best as a new, single father – something that none of us ever imagined would happen.
Matti has also taken leave from work throughout this period which will be unpaid and while our family is helping him as much as we can, there is not an endless cash flow.
For those would like to help him care for his babies and not worry about financial issues your generosity would be greatly welcomed. If you are not able to contribute financially but would still like to help, please share this story so we can reach as many people as possible. Thanks!
