Benjamin Daniel Ruiz Memorial Fund

JoAnn Frawley and I have been friends for what seems like forever. In the past 18+ years we have watched each other’s children grow up while walking each other through some of life’s worst moments. JoAnn is a single mom, a breast cancer survivor, and one of the strongest people I know. On Friday, January 12, 2018, JoAnn’s youngest son, Benjamin Daniel Ruiz, passed away suddenly. He was 21 years old. He was a wonderful brother, the best uncle, the greatest grandson and nephew, and, most importantly, he was JoAnn’s baby boy. No parent should ever have to bury their own child so to help cover funeral expenses, and all the other little things that come up during this time, I am asking for your help. Please donate and share this fundraiser so we can try and alleviate just a small part of the pain that JoAnn’s family is experiencing.
