This Man Lost His Wife, Newborn Daughter, Sister, and Grandmother in 2 Weeks
Last Tuesday, Domingos Fraga of Milford, Massachusetts, attended the funeral of his 26-year-old wife Liz and their 5-day-old baby Juliet, WCVB reports. Liz died May 6 and Juliet died May 11. At the wake a few days later, he learned he'd lost his 42-year-old sister to cervical cancer, and this past Sunday, his grandmother died of a stroke.
According to WCVB, Liz had been healthy throughout her entire pregnancy, but for unspecified reasons, needed an emergency C-section to deliver her baby. Fraga said Liz bled out while she was being airlifted to another hospital after the surgery. Juliet took in too much blood during birth, but Fraga "got to hold her and read to her every night [she was alive]. They were meant to be together. Liz wanted to hold her."
Fraga's sister Melinda had been battling "aggressive" cervical cancer and had two children, according to her . "All my family is being taken away," Maria Fraga, Fraga's mother, told WCVB at Liz and Juliet's wake when she learned her daughter had died: "It's not fair." It's unclear if Fraga's grandmother who died was his mother's mother or his father's mother, but she was 91 when she had the fatal stroke.
Though Fraga reportedly resisted, his best friend Tiago set up a GoFundMe to raise money for him. "He would never ask for money, and be more inclined to give you money rather than take any," Tiago wrote. "But he's not asking, we are. He's already emotionally drowning with all this bad news and the last thing we would want for him is to drown in debt." The GoFundMe has raised ,629 in less than a week — the original goal was ,000.
In a comment five days ago, Fraga wrote on the page:
