The Justin Cunningham Memorial Fund


               On February 11, 2018, Heaven gained another angel.  We lost our dear Justin Cunningham to a sudden and tragic accident.  Justin grew up in Eastern Nebraska on a ranch and was a skilled roper.  Justin had just won a roping event the day before his heartbreaking accident.  He is described by his closest friends and family as extremely intelligent, outgoing, and eager to talk to everyone about anything. He loved and looked out for all of the people in his life.  Justin was an accomplished pharmacist with a very bright career and future ahead of him.  He was extremely close to his mother, father, brother, and is survived by his long-time girlfriend, Abby Kijowski.  The couple were soulmates and lived together in Gering, Nebraska on twelve acres, where they have horses, cats and their beloved dog, Mazie. 

                Due to the nature of the accident, Justin and Abby’s Corgi, Mazie, was also severely injured.  Mazie was immediately taken to an animal hospital nearby and is currently in intensive care where she is in need of extended and expensive medical treatment. 

               Although Abby has the loving support from both families behind her, she is still left to mourn the loss of the love of her life, to care for their home, and Mazie’s medical expenses.

              Please rally behind Abby and Mazie.  If you are able to donate to Abby’s cause in her greatest time of need, anything is greatly appreciated.  Please keep Abby, Mazie, and Justin’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.  Justin’s loved ones will need all of the support they can get in this trying and tragic time.
