Riley's College Fund


My name is Matt Pawlak and I am the brother of Lauren Pawlak. I organized this GoFundMe for Riley, Lauren's four-year-old daughter.

Lauren tragically passed away on September 25, 2022, due to complications from a stroke and pulmonary embolisms. Lauren was life-flighted to Pittsburgh Presbyterian Hospital for surgery to remove the blood clots but, unfortunately, did not make it through the surgery.

In lieu of sending flowers to the funeral, we ask you to kindly consider donating to Riley's college education. Any donated money will be directly deposited into an account set up for Riley, specifically for furthering her education.

We sincerely appreciate all the love, support, and prayers we have been showered with.

Thank you,

The Pawlak Family
