Friends of Rachael Ptaszynski unite to raise money to help her pay the bills for her precious baby girl, Olivia Mae.

On August 2nd, 2012 my dear friend and co worker, Rachael, went into early labor. At only 28 weeks, she was sent to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to try to stop labor, however later that night she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Olivia Mae. Although she weighs less than 2lb, this precious little girl stole our hearts! After only 12 hours on the breathing tube, doctors were so impressed with little Livi's breathing they removed her from the ventilator!! She is getting bigger everyday and getting stronger with every passing hour! Rachael is at her side everyday, though this takes a toll on her financially. Olivia will have to remain in the hospital until she reaches her due date, November 1st. The bills are, and will continue to, stack up. This is where we need your help! Rachael is a constant joy to be around. Her love of life is so strong and rubs off on everyone around her. I have never met a harder working person. She is always there to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on. She is one of my best friends, and a sincere friend to everyone she meets. I know that her little Olivia Mae will have the same zeal for life, we can already tell she is a fighter! Please give whatever you can, monetary or word of encouragement!! Thank you!
