Point Pleasant couple James and Alayna Stoeckel need the community's help.

They are expecting their second child this March. During a doctor's visit, the parents were told that their unborn son has a congenital heart defect, and he won't survive once he is born.

The family has been dealing with other hardships with losing jobs and other financial issues.

According to their GoFundMe page:

"The hospital we have been seeing to receive the best care possible and properly preform surgery on our new baby is (CHOP) Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia. It’s about two hour drive for us every week with not a reliable car for past few months. We will need to relocate to Philadelphia for birth, surgery and recovery. Due to everything we have been going through, we have exhausted all the help we can get from family, churches, and even the state."

As of this writing, the family is about $1,500 short of their $5,000 goal.
