AJ Tinch Memorial Fund

This is AJ with his mom Theresa, girlfriend Elaina and her daughter Holland. Theresa has been like my sister since we first met in 4th grade and I have always considered AJ as my nephew since the wonderful day he was born. My name is Kiersten and I would like to help Theresa with the expense of AJ's funeral arrangements.

AJ was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was 2 yrs old and has been fighting it his whole life. Despite having CF, AJ was the happiest and most joyful little boy that I've ever known. Always had a smile on his face and loved to be the center of attention. Now at the age of 23 his battle with CF has come to an end and I want to help Theresa with easing the burden of having to bury her only child.

Theresa herself has been battling a few health issues and because of that she's not been able to work for a few years. She's been a single mom for most of AJ's life and has devoted her life to him. Not only has she taken care of him, she has also taken care of me by donating one of her kidneys to me back in 2003. I would just like to somehow give back to the most inspirational and selfless person I know.


Please help me to make this transition for her a little more bearable.


Thank you!
