Bird #: 3

Location: Davenport, IA


Mission: To raise and distribute resources to enhance the delivery of care through Genesis Health System.

"I look back and wish I would have held Brayden longer, kissed him, looked at every little detail, and took 100 more pictures." –Jenny Buntemeyer

The Brayden Buntemeyer Fund at the Genesis Foundation honors the life of Brayden Buntemeyer, the son of Jenny and Jess Buntemeyer, who was born sleeping on October 21, 2011.

Gifts to Brayden's Fund support families facing the loss of their infant. Grieving families receive care in the No Foot Too Small Birthing + Bereavement Suite at Genesis Medical Center, Davenport.

Funds are used to provide emotional support, create special memories families will cherish forever, and ensure compassionate and loving care for the infants and their families.

"We are deeply humbled by this project that has come from the hearts of many shattered by the loss of their child, reaching out to touch the hearts of those who will someday walk this road and to help them carry the incredible weight that burdens empty arms." - Dr. Lyndsey Day
