Candice Gray Burial Expenses

Candace Gray was born in 1982 with spina bifida. She has had a long battle for 35 years just to make it through life with things most of us take for granted being able to walk. Most of her life she has been taken care of by her father and grandparents. Anyone that has a disabled family member knows you have to make sacrifices when it comes to their care. Her father Larry has tirelessly and selflessly been by her side often unable to work 40 hours a week while having to be home to care for her. This led to them loosing there home and having to move into a small apartment.  This last year she has been in and out of the hospital numerous times and while at home required continual care thereby causing them to fall farther into financial strain.

After a year battle with a bed sore that came from the neglect of a rehab facility, she passed away Sunday January 7 while in the hospital when the infection became more than her body could take.

Her burial plot is paid for, but there is no insurance to cover the cost of burial and the funeral home has everything on hold until her father can come up with $10,000. I am setting up a go-fund me page if anyone would like to donate to help him cover the final expenses. He is 70 years old and has been out of work for most of the year caring for her and is already struggling to make ends meet. Funds above the cost of the burial will be used for lingering medical expenses and to help her father get caught up on the income loss of the last year. Anything will help and be appreciated.
