After their daughter, Hayden, was stillborn at 32 weeks of gestation in 2010, Rebekka and Randy Hauskin's hospital bills served as a painful reminder of their loss. As a result, they decided that they wanted to help other families dealing with this type of tragedy, and in memory of their daughter, created the Oregon-based nonprofit Hayden's Helping Hands. The foundation helps Oregonians after the birth of a stillborn baby by paying for a portion or all of their hospital delivery expenses, so they can focus on healing rather than financial burdens. The amount of financial assistance is determined by the foundation on a case-by-case basis, and all payments are made directly to the medical facility.
