BUTLER - A North Jersey community is turning heartbreak into hope as they come together for a young mother who died suddenly after giving birth.

Lauren Weller died Saturday of complications from childbirth.

Since then, her co-workers at B-Euphoria Salon in Butler have been collecting donations of clothing and supplies for the new baby.

The salon is also selling pink ribbons for $10 and donating the money to Weller's family.

"Lauren was a close friend of mine," says Dina Digirolamo. "My heart bleeds for her and her family. This is the least I can do to help them out. I wish I could do more."

A website set up in Lauren's honor has raised more than $33,000 for her two kids and their father.
