This is the heartbreaking photo posted by Florida resident Ashlee Hammac. Her newborn son tragically died just five days after birth due to a condition which doesn't allow enough oxygen to get to the brain. 


Hammac also has a three-year-old son who travels to the cemetery with her when visiting the newborn's gravesite, so she decided to make it a special experience for him. Hammac built a sandbox for her son to play in and share special moments with the little brother he knew for too short a time.

She has also created a non-profit organization called "Pages to Memories" which aims to help spread the word about Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephlopathy, the condition which claimed her baby's life.
