Gallo Funeral/Hospice Expenses

Hey Everyone, 

Unfortunately as many of you know my mom(Jaci Gallo) has passed away after her long battle with ovarian cancer.

She always had a way to look for the best in people and could keep a positive attitude even through the hardest times.   

Now we are asking for your help and kindness.

Sadly due to the nature of my fathers work and home office in Buffalo we have come across a couple pretty big hiccups in this last whirlwind of a week.

Blue Cross Blue Shield did not cover my moms hospice stay due to it being "out of network" since it was close to home and not in Buffalo.  This came as a surprise to all of us but the amount owed is incredible. 

My mom had a very small life insurance policy that is just going to cover the funeral, headstone, and casket costs.  

Hospice is going to be between $10,000 - $20,000 for the short time she was in there.   As you can imagine that is a lot of money to have to come up with out of the blue. 

My sister and I do not want my dad to have to worry about this.  

He doesn't even know we are starting this as you all know hes a bit of a hard head and doesn't want to burden anyone else. 

Tanya and I are calling on everyone to please, even if you can only donate a dollar, it will help.

This money will go to the hospice bill my Dad is going to get. 

Thank you in advance and all of your texts, calls, emails, and stops at the house have been nothing but incredible.
