Help Pay for Roxy's Dad's Funeral

Our dear friend Roxanna Pakkar lost her father, Alireza Pakkar, Thursday morning. He was 52 years old and her best friend. Roxy has no other family besides her mother, Roya, and has to take care of her grieving mother, the household finances, and herself. This is one of the most difficult tasks a 19-year old like Roxy could ever face. 
Roxy exists in so many communities, within and outside of USC. She dedicates her time and her heart to helping others, whether that be in her research lab, in Troy Camp, or those she loves. Now, it's our turn to give back to Roxy and her mother. 

The costs for a simple burial are exorbitant and not something Roxy and her mother need to be worrying about in this trying time. Please donate whatever you can to alleviate this financial burden on this wonderful family.
