2021-2022 Multiples of Illinois State Philanthropic

The Dueck Family

Aletheia and her husband, Nelson, welcomed identical triplet boys on 8/24/2021. They also have Ayla (6), Hazel (4), and Benny (2).

Aletheia joined Double Take when she learned of her pregnancy for support and attended the August monthly meeting in person, not knowing her triplets would be coming soon! The triplets arrived at only 27 weeks and have been in the NICU at Northwest Community Hospital for 53 days with a long journey ahead of them. Joey is now at 3lbs 14oz, Ollie is at 3 lbs 8oz, and little Nels is at 2 lbs 12oz.

Aletheia has shared the ups and downs of the NICU. Besides the emotional toll this takes on a family, they also expect medical bills to be close to $90,000 out of pocket. They have a GoFundMe site and have raised about $14,000 of their goal of $50,000 to help with their bills in the short term. She has been extremely appreciative of any and all assistance give thus far. Double Take has done a calling/text tree to check in on Aletheia and her family, have provided a care package, and are reminding members monthly to consider dontating through their Meal Train.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide to assist this amazing family!
