Jonathan Coehlo was only 32-years-old when he died of COVID-19 in April of 2020. He left behind his wife, Katie, his 10-month-old daughter, Penelope, and his two-year-old son, Braedyn.

While Jonathan was battling COVID at Danbury Hospital, Hearst Connecticut Media told the sad story of a panicked nurse who called his wife, Katie, at 3 a.m. on April 22, 2020, telling her that she needed to rush to Danbury Hospital immediately.

Katie was unable to make it in time from her home in Bethel because just before she arrived, tragedy struck when Jonathan died of cardiac arrest, and Katie wasn't able to kiss her husband goodbye. Later that same day, as she was about to scroll through photos on her husband's phone. Warning, you may end up in tears.

I'm retelling you this sad story because Jonathan and Katie's son, Braedyn, was born with severe medical complexities and cerebral palsy. On June 4, at Dawn's Pizzazz, the first 'Jonathan Coelho Fund Cut-A-Thon' will occur at both DP locations in Danbury and Litchfield from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Haircuts will be priced at $50, and donations will also be accepted, with all money going to the 'Jonathan Coelho Fund,' which will also help Braedyn get the care he needs. Money raised will help pay for medications, procedures, camps, equipment, and therapies for the children.
