Baby Cierah was born in February 2021 and spent the first 2 months of her life in the NICU at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent.  Cierah’s family lives 2 hours away and financially could not afford to stay in a hotel nearby during her prolonged hospitalization. 

Located right down the street from the hospital, the Ascension St. Vincent House is a dedicated hospitality house that serves as a home away from home for families who live more than 60 miles from Ascension St. Vincent, especially those with financial barriers.  The facility is designed to be a place of peace, rest and emotional and spiritual refreshment - and that is just what it provided to Cierah’s mom and grandma, who both were able to stay at the Ascension St. Vincent House and support Cierah’s healing during her hospitalization without the burden of having to pay for hotel accommodations.

One night while staying at the Ascension St. Vincent House, Cierah’s grandma, Susen, was thirsty and went to look for a bottle of water.  She discovered that groups donate water and food to families staying at the Ascension St. Vincent House and decided that she wanted to honor Cierah and show her gratitude for the staff at the Ascension St. Vincent House by helping to guarantee that no guests ever went thirsty.  Susen’s goal is to fill the pantry with bottled water - an oasis for all who go seeking comfort and refreshment during their stay.

Cierah is doing great and turned 1 year old on February 26, 2022, and her family would be honored if you would help celebrate by donating to their fundraiser today.

All money donated will be used to purchase bottled water for families staying at the Ascension St. Vincent House. 

Thank you for your support!
