Help finish 8th grade: Damaries



This campaign is for Jake (14) and Destiny (9). They are bright  young children who lost their mom, Damaries Isaac to colon cancer on Friday 8th Dec 2017. Since her diagnosis in Sept 2017, they have had to witness what no child should see their parent going through. They watched their moms health deteriorate, they saw her unable to eat,  get up from bed, they saw her struggle to breathe and had to come home from school to an empty bed with the news that she had sadly passed.

            After having a heart to heart talk with Jake, he expressed of how he wants to finish 8th grade at his current school before moving to Texas to  begin High School, living with their grandmother-Joyce Eshikhaty. This is where you come in. Your donations will help to maintain a normal life as possible, to pay rent, household bills, school requirements and a Christmas present.  It will help them in times where they will want to buy flowers and visit their moms grave. 
             The extended family is currently raising funds for the funeral to be held on the 23rd  December 2017 to lay Damaries Isaac to rest. It's stomach churning to know that the Christmas season will always have a sting for these children. But they will also remember the generosity of everyone who donates and know that they had your support during this time.



God Bless you
