DUMONT, N.J. — Women from across Bergen County are turning out in droves to donate breast milk to the family of a Dumont woman who died last week while giving birth to twin girls.

Daily Voice received nearly 100 emails from the local moms looking to send the Roman family frozen bags of milk, after hearing that Julia Roman was planning on breast feeding her girls, Isabella and Grace -- as she did with 5-year-old Victoria.

Katie Belthoff of New Milford, Amanda Dilorio of Bergenfield, and Donna Ore of Wanaque are storing the milk in their freezers. A freezer for the family was donated on Wednesday morning.
