SEAGOVILLE – A GoFundMe fundraiser has been setup to help a local family whose mother recently passed away from complications due to COVID-19 just a few days after giving birth to a newborn baby.
Krystal Blackwell of Seagoville started feeling ill after her two sons, David and Dyla, had already begun experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. She gave birth by emergency C-section on August 30, but died four days later after being put on a ventilator.
Blackwell’s three kids have been taken in by her sister, Brandy Banda, who also took in her niece and nephew from her late brother several years ago. She is now raising five children with her own two boys.
