To help the Benefield Family with funeral costs for baby Payson

On August 18, 2012 Rachel went in to the ER as a precaution after realizing that she had not felt movement from her baby of 35 weeks. She arrived to the Hospital about 10 am that morning and was admitted. The nurses hooked her up to a fetal monitor to check on baby Payson. The heart beat was weak. The nurses tried to stimulate baby Payson and continued to monitor his heart beat. Baby Payson's heart rate starting dropping and dropping quickly. An ultrasound was ordered but come to find out there just was not enough time to actually have one. Payson's heart rate dropped to 20. An emergency c-section was ordered. They rolled Rachel in to the operating room in effort to save Payson. The c section was done with NO anesthesia and baby Payson was delivered, but he was not breathing on his own.The doctors quickly started CPR on him. They continued to work on him for the next 30 minutes in hopes to save him. It was not successful. At 12:28 PM Payson return back to our Heavenly Father. And Rachel and Chris were left baby-less and broken hearted.
