The joyous birth of baby Hayden also brought tremendous sadness as his mother passed away a short 11 days after his delivery.

Miranda And Cory Fender were more then excited when they found out they were having their first child because they did not think they could have children. 
She was due shortly after her 30th birthday with a little boy. She had a long hard labor and they ended up doing a emergency c section, things were great they went home with the greatest gift of all a healthy little boy named Hayden. 
 11 days after baby Hayden was born Miranda fought for her life she went into septic shock and complete organ failure: her heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver stopped functioning while clotting threatened her limbs. The odds were stacked heavily against her.

While Miranda remained unconscious, the ICU doctors worked desperately to save her. After emergency surgery to find over 10 pockets of staph infection, they cleaned it out and left her incision open to help it heal. 

While there was tremendous fear, there was also incredible strength. Friends and family provided physical and emotional support. The sleepless new dad, Cory stayed at the hospital 24/7  providing boundless love to his wife of only 4 months. 

 1 day later she passed away on October 19th at 9:21pm - her heart, lungs and kidneys had no hope even being on life support.

Cory and Baby Hayden have a long road ahead of them, what the family needs now is financial aid from those who are in the position to contribute.
