Former UFC lightweight fighter Sam Stout and his wife Jessie are in mourning following the unexpected passing of their daughter, Sydney, who was about a month old.
According to posts from Sam and Jessie, Sydney passed away in her sleep a few nights ago.
In the midst of an outpouring of support for the family a GoFundMe was set up to help raise money for the Stout family (which also includes the couple’s six-year-old daughter Logan) to help them pay for “day-to-day costs, counseling, bills associated, etc.” The fundraiser originally aimed to earn $5,000 for the family, but it’s raised over $28,000 so far thanks to the generosity of fans and strangers.
While money can never replace the loss of a loved one, hopefully the extra funds will help make the recovery process even a little bit easier for the Stout family.
