We appreciate all of your kind words and concerns at this time. Many have asked what you can do for Art and his family. Friends of the Scheel family have set up a GoFundMe account to help with baby Christian’s funeral expenses. CLICK HERE for the direct account details. Here are some of the details from the GoFundMe page:
“We lost our smiley, bubbly baby boy last night after only 7 months. Christian Jack was found unconscious, given CPR, and flown by helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. While he initially showed signs of recovery and responding to our efforts of talking to him and playing with him, the swelling from oxygen deprivation prevented him from winning his battle.
We worked to get his brothers to the hospital so they could see him before the end came since it was our intention to donate what we could so Christian’s death would mean life for another couple’s child. When Christian’s grandparents arrived with his two older brothers, we were to meet with a grief counselor who would work with our boys to understand what was happening.
Instead, the doctor rushed out and met us. They gave Christian to his mother so she could hold him through the end. 28 hours after everything began, it was over.”
