Easton Lee Green was born on April 12, 2014 at 6:45 am at 38 weeks gestation, approximately three weeks early to Jason and Brittney Green. Within a couple of days, concerns were raised when Easton developed feeding problems that began a 130-day journey that no parent wants to travel. After stays in two different children’s hospitals, Baby Easton finally came home with hospice care. He passed away on August 19, 2014, in the arms of his parents.
During Easton’s hospitalization at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Brittney met Brittany Spence who became a rock in her life. Spence and her husband David had been through similar circumstances when their son was born. In memory of their child, they founded The Forrest Spence Fund that assists parents with food vouchers, gas cards, counseling service and other needs.
