Mother Donates Breastmilk After the Death Of Her Son
From tragedy comes life.
Deni Frandsen a mother from Omaha, Nebraska donated over 131 gallons of breast milk to her local hospital. She did it in loving memory of her son, who passed a just 10 months old.
Demi Frandsen spent months at the Children's Hospital and Medical Center after her son was born two months early. Her son was diagnosed with gastroschisis, which is a birth defect where the baby's organs are outside the baby's body.
"There was no skin to pull over his exposed organs," Frandsen told ABC 6(http://www.people.com/article/breast-milk-mom-donates-son-death). "It was kind of a new case they had not seen before."
Frandsen's baby Leo passed away on Oct. 22, and the whole family is working on coming to terms with the death.
But out of the sadness came life, Frandsen wanted to give back to the hospital that took care of her son. She decided to save her breastmilk, waking up every three hours to pump her own breast milk.
"My final donation was 17,503 ounces, which is 131 gallons," she said to People. "So, a dairy aisle, basically."
"He was worth it. He was worth all of this," Frandsen(http://www.people.com/article/breast-milk-mom-donates-son-death). "His life in 10 months was the best 10 months of mine."
Frandsen did a beautiful act even faced with so much grief, we all want to be a little more like this mom.
