The family and friends of Ricky Thao are uniting to help raise at least 10,000.00 dollars to help with funeral cost.

RIcky Thao was a wonderful little boy with lots of family and friend's love. He was born on July 12th, 2005 in the city milwaukee WI. He grew up with tons of family and friends and loved to swim. Every year Ricky and his family will go to Wis. Dells to swim and have a great time.Unfortunately on July 6th 2012, his parents found him in critical condition in their family pool in the backyard. He was rushed to the hospital with his heart still beating and doing well. On July 7th, 2012 he was breathing on his own and responding to the touch of everyone's hands. Most of all he was squeezing his mother's hands and tears was coming down his face. From there, we had so much faith that our pretty ricky was going to come back to us. On July 8th, 2012, everything just went down hill. His heart rate drop dramatically from 180 to 120 and so was his breathing. Later that evening, we got the news that a mother would never want to hear. Ricky Thao, at 6 years old was pronounce brain dead. There was nothing they can do but just put him on life support until all friends and family are done visiting. On July 9th, 2012 (three days before his 7th birthday) at 6:30 pm, we all had no choice but to pull the plug. The hardest and saddest moment of my life to watch my little nephew slowing catch his last breathe and feel his heart beat drop lower and lower. It was sooo hard to say goodbye and leave him. Everything happened so quick, and now we are trying make sure he gets a funeral. His funeral will be held on 07/28/2012-07/29/2012. We only have at least 2 weeks to help raise the money or else he wont be able to get one. Every little penny count right now and i hope you guys can help us raise these money for my lil pretty ricky. Happy birthday ricky. we all love you and may you have a wonderful birthday with god. RIP.
