“Stop looking for money. Let the baby die. It's called Darwinism. Happy Holidays".
Ahler placed flyers near a mall in Toledo, Ohio, to help raise money for his boyfriend Randy James, with a hit known as RJ. But as he walked around the area last week, he noticed that someone had responded with a hate message.
Although they have health insurance, bills are added. One test ordered by a geneticist cost $ 10,000.
So Allers and his wife were looking for donations.
He simply could not believe that anyone who read his sign could have so little empathy.
"It shocked me," he told WTVG. "I mean, it really shocked me that someone would have that kind of cruelty."
Despite the damaging message, most of the community is supportive. Angela Ahler, RF's mother, told CNN they received an outpouring of love and support from people as far away as Australia, Argentina and Canada.
"That sign did the opposite of what this person wanted because it obviously went global," she said.
As of Tuesday afternoon, GoFundMe for RJ raised more than $ 33,000 toward its $ 20,000 target.
So far, the couple says they are leading the high road.
"We want to raise our son so that he will not return with hatred. We want to fight hate with love, "KJ Ayers told WTVG. "So we obviously know that someone who has done this is disturbed and we hope they get help. But we will keep your signs as we watch them because we see them because this city does not need hatred. This city needs it. out of love ".
