Their Story, My Voice

Dear Family and Friends,

We are greatly appreciative of the prayers and condolences that have been given to our family regarding the senseless act of violence that occured on Monday, January 23rd, 2017 in Hammond, Indiana.

The life of my sister, Carmelle Erbie Cajuste, was prematurely taken while the lives of my cousins Chrisine Lobo and Gladson Lobo that were critically wounded and are day to day in their recovery.  

Many have asked over last several days what they can do to assist my family with this travesty. I would now like to ask all those that are in a position to help financially to donte to this GoFundMe account as this devastation has affected the lives of many.

The proceeds will be used for medical expenses and any other potential needs as we continue down this road to recovery.
