How can we all not rally together for this child? Violet’s Mother Renee J. Nobles (you can read her obit here) found out she had terminal liver cancer while pregnant with her child. She made the ultimate life-giving decision for her new baby against chemotherapy. Renee carried her daughter for 32 weeks gestation. The liver cancer had become too aggressive.
Renee delivered Violet peacefully with only one push. Violet was born November 17th, she was released from the NICU on December 1st. And her mother, Renee, passed away December 15th. Her dying wish is that her daughter be raised on breastmilk. Violet was the fifth of Renee’s children to be born to a Mother who loved holistic healing and baking.
Violet is 4.6lbs at birth. She is healthy and strong.
Renee’s dying wish was that her daughter could be raised on human milk. Her family is dedicated to making this wish come true. If you have any milk that you are able to donate, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Violet is located in Dutchess County in New York. They are able to travel a bit to pick up, and currently have drop-centers set up around the area.

Our prayers worked, the family is currently full with milk! Hoorah! If you have extra milk, please donate to one of the milk banks affiliated with Human Milk Banks of North America. The milk is screened, tested and pasteurized (as safe as blood from a blood bank) and is prioritized for premature babies and critically ill babies that desperately need mama’s milk! Donating to a registered milk bank should be a priority, but moms who can not donate to a milk bank (they have strict requirements) and are disease free should post their available milk on Human Milk for Human Babies. They are facing an unprecedented demand and are constantly at near-shortage levels! Donor milk and that it is the next best food for babies after a mother’s own milk, let’s help fill up some milk banks!
