For those of you who have seen the updates I’ve been sending out on William & Audrey Black’s baby girl, you know that the family has been through a lot in the last two weeks and is in for a long road ahead. (For additional information on what happened, please see the information at the very bottom of this message.)
Many miracles have helped Talitha survive to this point and William and Audrey are constantly expressing their gratitude when they call me with update information. It is still unknown how and what portion of the hospital ICU, surgery, medicine, and therapy bills will be covered now and in the future. However, if you combine all those expenses with non-medical costs such as travel, lost work, and home expenses it is enough to overwhelm anyone.
I’ve asked William & Audrey if I could set up an account that would make it possible for those who are interested to contribute what they can. Although it can be an awkward thing asking for help, they really do need all of our help to survive this ordeal emotionally and financially.
They have expressed gratitude for those who have been able to help with their stay away from home these past two weeks as Talitha was at the Primary Children’s Medical Center in Pediatric ICU for 10 days followed by 4 days in the Neuroscience Trauma Unit. The support from so many family and friends has helped make the burden lighter.
Please consider helping out if you can. I know William and Audrey don’t want to be a burden to anyone. At the same time, I know from talking to them that they are facing a situation well beyond their own and their family’s ability to provide for.
Many of us are trying to do what we can spiritually, emotionally, and financially for William & Audrey’s family. Hopefully, by working together, we can help William and Audrey keep their heads above water as they face a rough year ahead of cancer treatments for Talitha.

Please consider one or more of the following ways that we can all help them out:

1) Pray and continue to pray for Talitha and the whole William and Audrey Black Family

2) Send them an email of encouragement or support to: and/or (Audrey)

3) Contribute to the account I set up at Zions Bank on their behalf (Any Contributions will go directly to them)

Account name: Hugh Black

4) Contribute online (Account Name:

Another way to help out is to forward this letter to others you know who will want to be aware of what is happening and who might also be able to help. I’ve received a few email addresses from William and Audrey but I know there are a lot more people who know William and Audrey and who will help if they can.

Thank you all for helping William and Audrey and their family in any way you can. William and Audrey are very hopeful that things will work out for Talitha. There have already been miracles that have saved her life so we are very hopeful that it is a good indication that her work on this earth has only just begun and that she will be with all of us for many years to come.
Thank you once again, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
