Welcome to our team page. We've created this team in honor of our daughter, April Rey. We found out that she had trisomy 13 when I was just 15 weeks pregnant. We made the heartbreaking choice to spare her a short life of pain, and induced the pregnancy early. We held her and read her a book and she knew nothing but love. We cherish our moments with her.
The staff at Hopkins helped to create beautiful memories even in the midst of a devastating situation.
Our family is now passionate about raising awareness for those going through a termination for medical reasons.
We are also so pleased to announce that we've recently published a children's book series to help siblings going through this loss as well. You can find more information here: https://shop.terminationsremembered.com/product-category/childrens-books-about-termination-for-medical-reasons/
Please help us support Johns Hopkins Children's Center by making a contribution to our team and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance Johns Hopkins Children's Center's great cause! These funds will go specifically to the perinatal palliative care team and help parents that are dealing with the loss of a baby.
Together, we can make a difference!
