After losing their son Christian to complications from a birth defect, Jesse Cobb and Chelsea Stearns faced challenges beyond the tragedy of their loss.
As they were not financially prepared for a funeral, Cobb said the costs hit them hard. Cobb said he found himself unable to grieve fully due to the stress.
“The whole time I was in the hospital with him, knowing he was going to pass, that was on my mind,” Cobb said. “I was so stressed out about the financial end of it that it was hard to focus on the important factor at hand.”
