KNOXVILLE (WATE) - So many people who never met a local baby boy named Easton Henderson are learning about him and paying it forward.

Baby Easton died Tuesday after a head on collision late last week. 


His parents have made the decision to donate his organs to help other babies fighting for a chance at life. 

"He was beautiful in every way. He was perfect," father Bradley Henderson said of his son.

Thousands of dollars in donations are pouring in and thousands are sharing the "Go Fund Me" page for baby Easton.


Hearts are going out to the tiny boy with the sweet smile, and also to his mom and dad who've suffered such an enormous loss.

"He made everybody's life around him better," Henderson said.

Baby Easton was with his mom Catelyn on old Dandridge Pike Friday when they were in a head on collision.

Mom suffered a concussion and leg injuries.

Her son wasn't breathing when the ambulance arrived. He had a severe injury to his neck and spine.

His parents made the agonizing decision to take him off the ventilator.

"No family, no mother and father should have to go through what we've been going through," Henderson said of the experience.

Now this heartbroken young father is hoping to help other children, deciding with baby Easton's mother to donate his son's organs so that other babies might live.

"He can save somebody's life and if nothing good come out of this I know that that did."

Baby Easton's funeral is Wednesday.

A family friend has set up that "Go Fund Me" page to help the family pay for funeral costs and medical bills.
