Our hearts are with the Macias family.
The family of one of our frontline workers is in need. Davy Macias, a 37 year old labor and delivery nurse at Kaiser, passed away from COVID-19 last Thursday after giving birth to her 5th child. She never had the opportunity to meet her baby and now, heartbreakingly, her husband is in the ICU with COVID as well.
A GoFundMe page has been established by Davy's brother and sister to assist with caring for their 4 children at home and the newborn baby, who has yet to be named.
If you find it in your heart to donate, please do. There is also a way to drop donation items for the children noted in the GoFundMe page.
Sending our love to the Macias family.
