Melinda Alvear
on behalf of Mayra Alvear
 DAVENPORT, FL
Mayra Alvear and Danny Alvear are Amanda's parents.  They will be the beneficiaries for the funds raised throught this account.  

Our family has been through so much in the time since the horrific shooting at Pulse in Orlando. Unfortunately our hours of hoping and praying the unknown would be answered with a miracle were answered with heartbreak, we were notified early Monday morning that Amanda Alvear was among the deceased inside Pulse. We are overwhelmed by the incredible outpouring of support we have received from all over the world. Any donation to the family can be made here to go towards funeral expenses and support for Amanda's family as we try to make sense of what has happened and pick up the pieces. Thank you so much for your continued support.

To our friends and family,
We bask in your comfort and support. Emphatically, we offer our deepest appreciation. Your generosity has rescued us, and though the privilege you have granted us will be a difficult privilege to live out, we promise to not only declare words of gratitude but we will live by them.

An astounding amount of love, support and well wishes have been received. The Alvear family is immeasurably grateful to the boundless energy and love extended toward Amanda. No doubt her story, her personality, her character, her love and her spirit has touched millions. Her genuine soul and heart of gold is being reflected back onto her, for her family and her memory. May this love and spirit live on in all of you and your loved ones, today and always!!!

To update for the generosity of all who are visiting the page and donating: I am Melinda Alvear, Amanda's cousin. We are originally from New York and Puerto Rico. Currently with family members in Puerto Rico, Florida, New York, Minnesota, North Carolina, Georgia, and across the US. This is the second child they have lost. Nelson, their second son, died of osteosarcoma (cancer) in April 2001. The events of yesterday are profoundly impacting her parents and family as such news is never predicated or even imaginable. The community has been overwhelmingly kind and thoughtful in reaching out for support. We are in the process of securing funeral arrangements for Amanda. As life would have it, they were in the process of moving to Tampa, and Amanda was ready to transfer her work and school to Tampa. Their deposit on the house is due tomorrow, their house in packed up and in boxes ready for a move. The funds not only support the funeral but the losses of work due to the tragedy. More updates as they come.

In support of Amanda and this tragedy, please continue to support as our arms, hearts and love will reach the masses!!! Heaven is a great place, let make moves down here for her up there!!!!

I can't afford to give financially, but what I can offer is prayers and hope. I love all people with good hearts and good characters, and I don't judge. Someday, I hope to see a world where this no longer happens. Until then, I hope that everyone lost is in a better place.

Thank you Brian for sharing about Amanda on CNN. I'm sorry for your loss. The girl in this picture is my 17 year old daughter who died in 1999. Like your sister she wanted to be a nurse. I've been a nurse for many years and your story really touched my heart. It is so hard during your time of grief to share but it is so important for your sister to be remembered.

First and foremost, as I read the names of everyone who has donated I can't help but feel overwhelmed with joy. For so many ppl to put someone they've never met in there minds and hearts is incredibly beautiful. So, as her cousin, I would like to thank everyone who isn't a friend or family who has given selflessly. Thank you all for your care and concern.... Sincerely, one small portion of the Alvear family Thank you...

I dedicated my life to cancer research where the focus of many individuals is to find a cure and save people's lives. It is inconceivable to imagine that there are people out there that have absolutely no respect for life. They are so much into their own ideologies and dogmas that forget what life and love are all about. I just read about Amanda sacrificing her life to try and save her friend Mercedez Flores. That is true love for another human being. Only angels can do that. R.IP. Amanda and Mercedez, the world should never forget.
