Memorial Fund For Debbie Brake

Our friend Shannon is the kind of person who is always there for her friends and family. She and her brother have been taking care of their mother, Debbie, for the last 8 years, ever since a brain hemorrhage that stole both Debbie's health and memory from her. Things took a turn for the worse about a month ago, when she ended up in the hospital. She has been suffering from lung cancer, COPD and diabetes, and went straight from the hospital into hospice care. Today, Debbie lost her fight and her suffering is over. Unfortunately after several years of supporting her mother, our dear friend Shannon and her brother are both pretty financially drained and cannot cover everything on their own. They need our help in this difficult time. Shannon is someone who always puts others' needs first and we want to be able to do the same for her. Our goal is for Shannon and her brother to be able to say goodbye peacefully without having to carry this financial burden all on their own. Anything you can contribute will be an immense help. Thank you so much for your support!
