Eirelyn’s mom Katie explained in a Facebook post that Eirelyn was sledding on Saturday, February 20th, when her accident happened.
“On Saturday Eirelyn had a sledding accident and suffered a detrimental brain injury,” Katie wrote in her post.
“When they arrived at the Cleveland MetroHealth ER Jared experienced a massive heart attack that he did not survive.”
Jared is Eirelyn’s dad, and Katie’s husband.
“Eirelyn is currently on life support to maintain life long enough to find organ donor recipients. I am told this could take up to three days.”
“Waiting for the inevitable end is emotional and exhausting, but my hope is that a few terrible days for my family will mean a brighter future for other families who will benefit from her healthy organs.”
“I am so grateful for the outpouring of love and support we have received.”
