The Russo Family Fund

On Sunday, July 23rd, Maria Russo lost her long-fought battle with depression and mental illness. The Russo family is devastated with the loss of their mother and are trying to plan for a difficult and trying future without Maria. She left behind two daughters; one who has a child of her own, and another who has yet to graduate high school. Carissa, Maria's oldest daughter, is now responsible for Maria's funeral expenses and assuming the role of guardian for her younger sister.

Maria's daughters are handling this traumatic event with grace and optimism, but they can use your help with shouldering the burden of this tragic situation. The Russo Family graciously accepts all donations, and if monetary donations are not possible, they would appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
