Make It Rain for Kevin Weston's Family

$61,861 of $100k goal

Raised by 618 people in 44 months
Kevin Weston has transitioned after two years of living with a rare and aggressive leukemia. On Sunday June 15, 2014, Father's Day, he passed away in the loving arms of his wife Lateefah, in a moment of perfect love and peace.

Kevin and Lateefah were blessed to be accompanied through the cancer years by a large and loving community that supported them every step of the way. That journey is not over. Kevin's family is left with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills due in the coming quarter alone. Lateefah has a daughter beginning college and a little girl who needs her mother at her side in the coming months. In other words (though certainly not in hers), she needs our financial support--to pay the medical bills, give her time with her family and the means to support them, and to give Kevin the memorial he so very much deserves.

Please give what you can, a little or a lot. Just as importantly, please circulate this message among your networks. Now is the time to turn the remarkable community Kevin and Lateefah created and lived within into the cash the family needs to make it through this passage.

If you would like to mail a contribution, please send it to: Lateefah Simon c/o Rosenberg Foundation, 131 Steuart Street, Suite 650, San Francisco, CA 94105. Friends of Kevin's family also plan to establish a scholarship fund for making tax-deductible donations in the near future, so please stay tuned.

Thank you for helping honor Kevin's legacy!

Dear Community, Family and Friends,

There are no words to describe the deep love and healing that we have received over the last two years. Our family was carried through the hardest times by the caring and love poured over us as Kevin battled leukemia and as we marched on through this terrible battle with cancer.

Kevin passed away peacefully one month ago today. We are reeling, but standing strong. After the initial rush of activity now we sit with the nothingness of having him be gone from us. But we are continuing to live; Kevin would accept/expect nothing less from us.

We are moving into the unknown future without Kevin – with Lelah starting pre-school in the fall, Aminah starting college in the fall and Lateefah going back to work full-time now. We are living in the aftermath of the financial struggles – thousands of dollars of insane medical bills, significant rent increase and the other costs of living. But we are living.

We write to thank you all deeply from the bottom of our hearts. We promise to pay it forward – all the love and kindness and generosity. We will continue to live in Kevin’s light and love and we will continue to be strong surrounded by our community of loved ones, family and friends.

This will be our last update on the GoFundMe site. We will leave it live for another month or so, and then we will close it out. Also, if you were unable to attend the memorial, you can access and download the memorial newspaper at: http://issuu.com/svdebug/docs/life_and_times_kweston_print1/0

For those of you who would like to continue to help support Kevin's family in covering the massive medical bills incurred during his lengthy illness, the best way to contribute will be through this site or checks can be mailed to: Lateefah Simon, c/o Rosenberg Foundation, 131 Steuart Street, Suite 650, San Francisco, CA 94105.

If you have any questions, please contact helpkevinweston@gmail.com.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Lateefah, Lelah, Aminah and Team Kevin
