William George Cann was born on 6/4/2018 at 6:25am. He was delievered at 25 weeks into the pregnancy and weighed 1.1 pounds. During the delivery Williams Dad Matt Cann and Mum Crystal Shaw was told there was no heart beat. But after William was fully born his was resuscitated and had a strong heart beat and good oxygen levels, tests showed he was doing good and he was moved to the ICU and was kept stable.

Unfortunately his parents couldnt take him home as he was too small, this was heartbreaking for Crystal and Matt as they wanted to bring their little one home. A few days after the birth, tests showed baby William had a bleed in his brain. Baby William was such a fighter since he took after his mummy and daddy and kept strong. Everyone hoped and could only pray for baby William to keep fighting.

Matt and Crystal knew baby William was deteriorating, on 15th april it a hard night for baby William and his family as they knew baby William condition was still deteriorating. On the 17th april. Matt and Crystal had a knock at their door and was told it was best to come and say their goodbyes. Baby William passed away on the morning of 17th april 2018. His family spent 11 days with their little man. He was a fighter and will always be loved and missed.

Sadly baby Williams needs help raising money towards the headstone and other costs of baby Williams funeral. Any donations would be fantastic and the support will always be highly appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read baby Williams story.
