And so, we are heartbroken to say that on February 21, Faustin lost his battle with cancer after years of treatments, surgeries, radiation - and endurance. He was valiant in his fight, graceful in his exit. Assumpta, her young adult children, Trina and Peter, and her nephews, Blaise, Gaston, and Amedee thank you for all the kindnesses and support you've bestowed upon them. Though they (and many friends and family) will miss Faustin terribly, we find relief in knowing that his suffering has ended and that he has now joined his Lord in heaven.
The family had health insurance, however, coverage was far from complete and many medical bills are left unpaid, and now, there will be burial costs in addition. We are reaching out to ask for your assistance with helping Assumpta take on these monumental bills - the most immediate need is to help cover funeral expenses, and the remainder will help, though not eliminate, remaining medical bills.
Other options for contributing to the family include sending a check directly to Faustin's wife, Assumpta (please contact me privately for her for her address if you do not have it) or to wire money through Western Union or Money Gram to an office in Lincoln, Nebraska.
It is not easy to ask. If you find it in your heart to contribute, we give you our deepest thanks.
Please do not hesitate to message me through this site with questions.
