Help Us Bury Willie! by 2/25/18

My name is Crystal, my Husband Willie has been taken off life support. Today 2-15-18 But let me tell you our story first. Back in April 2017 Willie was diagnosed with Tonsil Cancer. And he decided because of our 4 children (4&6&16&17) at home he Wanted to fight this for them. He was doing an amazing job of fighting this very difficult and long battle. He did amazingly fighting through chemo and radiation. Then when we found out that the cancer came back so they had to surgically removed or it would constantly come back. They did the surgery to remove it and when they did the surgery in the midsts of getting the cancer removed they cut the main artery to his brain. He came home a couple days later. When he came home he was doing great till the next day when he started coughing up and throwing up blood. He was then rushed Chicago. When he got to Chicago he had emergency surgery to tie off the artery to stop him from bleeding out. But before surgery even took place he had a massive heart attack and stroke and also coded for 12 minutes. When he can out of surgery Willie was placed on life support and was in a coma. Willie was having sever seizures and by doctors orders we had to take him off of life support. So we are asking for help for Willies funeral services due to being unexpected and having to raise 4 children as a single mother now.
