Kevin Weston has transitioned after two years of living with a rare and aggressive leukemia. On Sunday June 15, 2014, Father's Day, he passed away in the loving arms of his wife Lateefah, in a moment of perfect love and peace.
Kevin and Lateefah were blessed to be accompanied through the cancer years by a large and loving community that supported them every step of the way. That journey is not over. Kevin's family is left with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills due in the coming quarter alone. Lateefah has a daughter beginning college and a little girl who needs her mother at her side in the coming months. In other words (though certainly not in hers), she needs our financial support--to pay the medical bills, give her time with her family and the means to support them, and to give Kevin the memorial he so very much deserves.
Please give what you can, a little or a lot. Just as importantly, please circulate this message among your networks. Now is the time to turn the remarkable community Kevin and Lateefah created and lived within into the cash the family needs to make it through this passage.
If you would like to mail a contribution, please send it to: Lateefah Simon c/o Rosenberg Foundation, 131 Steuart Street, Suite 650, San Francisco, CA 94105. Friends of Kevin's family also plan to establish a scholarship fund for making tax-deductible donations in the near future, so please stay tuned.
