Funeral & Medical expenses

My brother Paul Dumas was murder over News Year's Weekend and my sister Elaine Vidinha was beaten and left for dead by a person that they were trying to help get his life back together.  Elaine managed to find the strenth to crawl outside a couple of days later and yell for help.  She was released from the hospital and thank God that she will be ok, but she will have a long road ahead of her. I am creating this to help them with the medical & funeral expenses.  Elaine and Paul lived together but  it won't be possible for her to live there alone now. Any help will be greatly appreciated.Their news story!
