The family and friends of Joey Barry are trying to raise funds for travel expenses to visit his preemie daughter in Ft Worth Texas.

Joey and Ashley fell in love almost 5 years ago. They have lived and loved with all of their hearts. Ashley suffered a heart condition called Marfan's syndrome but she wanted to be a mom more than anything. When Ashley conceived, many doctors tried to convince her to terminate the pregnancy but she refused. On August 2, 2012, Ashley gave up her life to save her daughter. Madison Claudia was born by cesarean just after her mother's life ended. She is currently in the NICU fighting to live and doing a great job at it.
Joey is heartbroken to have lost such a great love and at the same time, completely in love with his new daughter. Madison will spend approximately 7 weeks in the hospital in Ft Worth, Texas. We all live in Wichita Falls. which is nearly a 2 hr drive. Ashley brought such a joy to our lives and although we miss her dearly, we now have her legacy to care for. Travel expenses are making it difficult to spend as much time with Madison as Joey would like. Please help us give a heartbroken dad more time with his precious daughter until she can be home.
