Wendy Cruz-Chan, from New York, US, contracted a rare uterine infection called chorioamnionitis that tragically resulted in her son, Killian being stillborn at 19 weeks. Despite her heartbreak, Wendy’s body was still producing breast milk — and she was inspired to do something for other babies.
So she started pumping and freezing her milk and was able to produce an unbelievable 2,000oz of breast milk.
“I wanted to turn something tragic into something good. I realized through donating that it gave me a purpose to do something good to help me with the healing process. It just makes me feel good seeing all the babies I’ve been helping.”
Now she’s found 6 children who will be the recipients of her donations.
It was documented on social media to help normalize breast milk donation and raise awareness especially to mothers.

“All in the memory of my angel baby Killian. A mother’s love holds no boundaries,” she said.
