On Jan. 30th, 2020 at approx. 7:00 p.m. in Tampa, FL, 14 year old Asucena Gomez Hernandez ("Susie") was hit by a car driven by Nakeeba Elia Ryan. Ryan's car dragged Susie down the street, stopped her car, got out of her car, saw Susie laying on the street bleeding, got back in her car and left the scene (without calling 911). Susie was unresponsive at the scene suffering multiple catastrophic trauma to her body.
First Responders took Susie to the ER for emergency surgery. Her brain was so swollen they had to remove both sides of her skull to see if the swelling would go down. Unfortunately, Susie is deemed medically brain dead and living only through artificial life support. The mother has taken a decision no parent ever wants to take.
At 3:00 p.m., February 6th, 2020, the artificial life support will be turned off and Susie will rejoin her maker - the heavenly father above.
Although Susie's spirit will be in heaven, her physical body will give others hope to continue living in the form of organ donation.
Although Susie will be an angel watching over her family, her mother and 2 younger sisters are left suffering on earth. No amount of compensation will ever heal the loss of Susie's family, however financial assistance for the family will be one less thing they need to worry about during this time.
We urgently ask for any financial contribution you can make for Susie's family. Susie's Mom, Angelina, is the sole provider (of now 2 children) and rightfully, will not be able to work for sometime because of her mourning.
All donations received will be used 100% for: funeral expenses, food for the family, rent for their apartment, utilities and other day to day family expenses.
We estimate $30,000.00 for all the expenses mentioned (funeral, food, rent, utilities etc.) that should last approximately 3 months.
Because of the tragedy, it is an emergency to immediately receive donations for Susie's family.
Susie thanks you from above for your prayers and donation.
