On May 4th, the world said goodbye to the most beautiful, devoted and caring mother of four, Aida Sterling. She is survived by her husband Matt and three children.Β 

Her battle with cancer was a hard fought one until the very end.Β 

She refused treatment to preserve her pregnancy. A week before her passing, she gave birth through an emergency C-Section to 26 week old baby Elizabeth. Thanks to God's grace, against medical opinion - she survived the C-Section and was able to see her daughter in the NiCU. One of her last words to her newborn premature child was, "I love you baby, I give my life to you, I give my life to you."Β 

Aida passed 6 days later, in Matthew's arms in Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

On May 10th, the world was preparing to bury our beautiful Aida. Around midnight the morning of, Matthew receives a visit from police officers which escorted him to the hospital where Baby Elizabeth was fighting to stay alive and grow. In the arms of her father, moments after he arrived, Elizabeth went up to be with the Lord. Matthew, devastated, had to now bury his wife and daughter on the same day.Β 

As you can imagine, this has brought a lot of pain, confusion and sorrow to the Sterling Family. Her loss has left a void in the hearts of all that cannot be filled. As humans, Christians, fathers/mothers, we are called to love our neighbor, cry with them and support them where possible.Β 

Aida's youngest surviving son, Baby Judah - 15 months old, is the light of Matthew's life. Brian and Bella, children from her previous marriage, are also grieving the loss of their precious mother.

The money collected will go directly to Matthew and family to help with the large medical and funeral charges that this tragic story left behind.

I pray that you find it in your hearts to share this sad story, so that all those touched can support this amazing family.Β 

I created the account so it reflects my name, but transfers will go directly to Matt Sterling.Β
