HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) - Kelley and Chad Whitworth founded a non-profit organization after suffering a stillbirth, with the aim of assisting families who are going through the same journey.

The Wells Clayton Whitworth Memorial Foundation is named after Wells Clayton Whitworth, their deceased son. The foundation provides financial assistance for funeral expenses, burial plots, headstones, and grief counseling for parents and siblings.

Since its inception, the foundation has been instrumental in supporting 12 hospitals and making a positive impact on the lives of over 200 families.

“We’re pretty amazed at how far we’ve come and how much it’s grown,” said Kelley.
