Baby Eli Edward Gee was born to loving parents Terrie Stein and Rob Gee on March 15, 2011. As both of his parents will tell you, Eli was the perfect baby whose life was filled with love and happiness. Ten weeks later, Eli was in an accident which resulted in a brain hemorrhage and a loss of oxygen to his brain. He spent four days in the
intensive care unit at Rockford Memorial Hospital where the doctors conducted emergency brain surgery to try to alleviate the bleeding and swelling on Eli’s brain. Just three short days later, on May 26th, Terrie and Rob had to make the extremely difficult decision to take their baby boy off of life support and let God welcome him into his arms.
Family and friends joined together to organize this benefit celebrating the memory of Baby Eli’s life and as a way to assist with the medical costs Terrie and Rob have incurred.

Two boys from West Texas were paralyzed in a car accident that killed their parents on July 2, 2011. Peter and Aaron Berry were paralyzed when an SUV crossed over into their lane hitting their minivan.
Fundraisers for the Berry boys started out on the local level, but now they have reached the rest of the nation.
Justin Bieber launched the "Show Your Hearts" campaign to help raise money for the two orphaned boys. Bieber is asking people to donate money online or by texting BERRY to 85944. Beiber also asked people to set the campaign photo as their profile picture on social media websites.
Other celebrities, like Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears, are also asking their followers on social media sites to make donations.
There will be two local events going on to help Peter and Aaron Berry. On Thursday July 28 at Manny's Deli there will be a fundraiser. There will also be a family swim party fundraiser on Aug. 7 at the Jewish Council for Youth Services in Highland Park.
