Tragedy Strikes the Twilight Community, Your Support is Needed!

A tragedy has struck our little Twilight community.  One of our original TwiFans.com's members and an avid Twilight fan's life was forever altered when Judy Hornberger's very pregnant daughter, Beth, had to be rushed to the hospital on December 1st. 

Judy kept us apprised of the very serious situation at the hospital and asked for all our prayers.  The baby had to be removed by emergency surgery due to lack of oxygen.  At that time, the baby was alive, but in serious condition.  Baby girl Natalie was rushed to a Children's Hospital for the best care. 

A short time later Judy was given tragic news.  She was told that her daughter, Beth, had not survived.  Bethany passed away from a cyst that had ruptured that had several arteries feeding it.  At this point everyone's hopes and prayers shifted to baby Natalie.

The following day we learned that baby Natalie had not survived the night and as Judy put it "Joined her mother in heaven".  Judy did get a few precious moments with her granddaughter before she passed.

Our hearts pour out to Judy, Bethany's mother and best friend, Paul, Bethany's father, and Dan, Bethany's husband. 

During these times of sorrow, we would like to collect donations for the Francis & Hornberger family to help with anything they may need.  All money collected will be given to Judy to use as she sees fit.  Let's pull together and show Judy and her family how much we care.  Any little bit will help.

Donate here to the Bethany Francis Fund!

UPDATE:

Guri Weinburg AKA Romanian Vampire Stefan from the Breaking Dawn Part 2 cast is helping us spread the word and has a message for Judy and the family:

Now the Volturri's Felix and Demetri are helping!

Thank you Daniel Cudmore and Charlie Bewley.

Kellan Lutz aka Big Emmett Cullen RT Beth's story too!

Erik Odom that plays Peter in Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is helping the cause!

This is the greatest tragedy that can strike a family. I'm sure Beth and Natalie from the sky, Judy will help to get ahead in life .. even if it will be difficult. I will pray for them all ...
