The Amila Rey Foundation
Welcome to Team Amila Rey!
We are so excited to kick off our second annual Team Amila Rey walk for Angel Babies.
As many of you know, Angel Babies was a critical source of support for our family when dealing with the sudden, unexpected, tragic and traumatic loss of Amila.
Through Angel Babies counseling sessions our family was able to work through some of the initial shock and begin to deal with the grief and pain that accompanied our devastating loss.
In fact, it was through many counseling sessions that the seeds of The Amila Rey Foundation were planted. Through the encouragement of Angel Babies director, Kathy Cromwell, we were able to see the beauty of each rainbow and the promises they hold, and thus the beginings of The Amila Rey Foundation were born.
Our family will be forever grateful for the kindness and support that Angel Babies has provided us.
Angel Babies provides services to any bereaved family member, regardless of their ability to pay, making this an important, valuable and critical resource to our community.
We hope that you will join Amila's Team and help us not only honor Amila's life but thank Angel Babies for all they have done for our family and our community.
