Kara Keough Bosworth has found a special way to honor the memory of her son, McCoy, who passed away shortly after birth in the beginning of April. Kara, who is the daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough, has created a tribute fundraiser to benefit March of Dimes, the nonprofit organization that works to support the health of mothers and babies.
The fundraiser is called “McCoy’s Warriors,” and currently is hoping to reach a goal of $50,000. On the donation page, the family shared a black and white photo of McCoy’s feet, as well as an image of an embroidered blanket with his name and a touching message.
“On April 6th, McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am. Weighing in at 11lbs 4oz and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size, strength and overall perfection. During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia, and a compressed umbilical cord. He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his adoring sister, and those that received his life saving gifts. Until we see you again...We love you, McCoy.”
The GoFundMe page also notes that donations will benefit moms and babies, and is “specifically targeted” to “helping encourage birth equity among all races, and from all socioeconomic backgrounds,” as well as “offering full-term loss support to parents,” and “supporting NICU parents during and after hospital stays.”
The family previously announced their decision to donate McCoy’s organs, and shared a beautiful message with the hospital’s organ and tissue procurement team.
“Tonight, we join together to honor this little savior’s gifts of life. Through him, may others find new hope and profound healing... and may he live again through them. May his legacy shine in the form of lifetimes aplenty - lives filled with laughter, compassion, energy, love, and most of all gratitude. May it be said that McCoy Casey Bosworth left this world in a better place, for a better place.... that he made an impact... that he was an answered prayer... that he was a hero. May angels lead him in. Thank you, McCoy.'”
