Today 18th January, family, friends and former work colleagues attended the funeral mass for our beloved friend & employee Michal Kunaszyk who died on Tuesday 16th January 2018, aged just 31 years old,
Having known Michal for almost the last 10 years did I ever think for 1 minute I would be writing something like this. Only 9 months ago Michal was a key member of our operations team with everything to live for. Then in late Autumn he was diagnosed with bone cancer and given a maximum 1 year to live. That 1 year ended up being a little under 3 months. He gave it his all with a positive attitude, change of diet and 2 courses of Chemotherapy - sadly all to no avail.
Michal is survived by his wife Sylvia and their 2 children Lena & Nadia. Michal was delighted to welcome his second child Nadia into the world just 2 months ago, and we thank god he was able to nurse his beautiful new daughter if only for a few weeks.
Michal & Sylvia like a lot of young couples struggled to make ends meet but gave a loving home to their young family. Michal was the main provider in the family and couldn’t afford to fund any form of life assurance. With limited savings therefore Sylvia is faced with the burden of funeral costs never mind ongoing living expenses & providing for her 2 beautiful daughters.
Please help us to raise much needed funds for Sylvia at this very sad time so she can plan the rest of her life without the burden of debt from a funeral service.
Thank you for reading this request for funding which will go direct to the family as they are in desperate need of our help immediately. I thank you in advance for your kindness no matter how small your contribution.
