Dorothy Bradley-Gonzalez's funeral

It has been an extremely long journey with significant health issues, but unfortunately those issues caused the life of a very beautiful person, my sister, Dorothy Marie Bradley-Gonzalez. Once my sister began to have kidney failure, everything else seemed to be exacerbated by it. Because she also had diabetes, some treatments for one issue would cause havoc for another. This went on for a long time while she also had to deal with dialysis three times a week, for four hours each time. She also had gout which would sometimes hinder a doctor's prognosis of what was really going on. These issues eventually caused significant heart issues which caused her to recently require a pacemaker and soon after that, another surgery to remove the extra fluid collecting around her heart. These issues continued to add up but she remained positive about getting healthy again. She returned home less than a week ago from the rehabilitation place she was at after getting the pacemaker (and several other surgeries), so they could get her to walk again. You see, because of the kidney failure, she also had calciphylaxis which is a calcium build up in your veins. It was extremely painful and caused her to need a walker (on a good day). At one point she had to have a surgery to attempt to "open up" the veins to her feet to regain some blood circulation just to be able to keep her feet and toes.
  Each time she would have a procedure or surgery, she would say that was one thing that was going to get her better...but then something else would happen. She was fighting. She didn't want her young daughter to grow up without a Mom...
  After hearing of her passing and notifying family members, I sat and wondered what else I could do; that is when I started this Go fund me. Because of all of the medical issues my sister has gone through the past couple of years and now faced with her funeral, I know her husband Danny will be facing financial hardships so this is one attempt to assist with that. I know that like myself, others will want to assist in some way, so this is one way they can. This account will be handed over to Danny.
