Former Memphian Erica Morales and her husband tried for years to have children. When they finally succeeded, Morales became pregnant with quadruplets.

However, Morales died hours after delivering the babies via c-section. The four newborns lost their mother before she ever got a chance to hold them.

Though Morales and her husband lived in Phoenix, Arizona, her mother, family and friends remain in Memphis.

In less than 24 hours, online supporters have donated more than $30,000 to the children and their father.
