Community Announcement – Birth: Parrish-Whitener

(Lander, Wyo.) – A boy, Legend Truth Whitener was born on July 17, 2014 to Tennell Parrish and Jordan Whitener. He was premature, originally due on September 3. Parrish was diagnosed with Preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome, a hypertensive disorder that affects both the mother and the unborn baby. The condition is present at least 5-8% of all pregnancies. The infant is hospitalized in Denver with his parents. A fund has been set up at Atlantic City Federal Credit Union in the couple’s names with donations asked to help pay for the couple’s living expenses while in Denver for the next seven weeks.

    Did they try the Ronald McDonald house for housing, first? as in before other hotels, etc. It is a really nice facility and just for these kinds of situations, too.

    Hmm, I wonder. I had a former classmate and her husband stay at the Ronald McDonald House for a couple of weeks and they had so many wonderful things to say about it.
