The DeGolier family of Marysville lost wife and mother Joshalynn DeGolier after complications from childbirth last week. In response to this horrible loss, folks have rallied to support parent Joe DeGolier, organizing a milk drive to support newborn baby Scarlett and provide her with sufficient breastmilk.

The drive ultimately yielded 28 donors in just three days who donated a total of 2,703 ounces of breastmilk, providing close to four months' worth of breast milk for baby Scarlett.

Despite the immense generosity of the community members who donated their breastmilk to the family, the DeGoliers are still facing serious challenges after the loss of Joshalynn. Folks can help out the DeGolier family by donating to their GoFundMe page here.
