My mother fought that battle medically, traditionally, and spiritually for seven long years before we reunited in 2015. My brothers and I were informed she was in much better condition but still had to be on drugs for the rest of her life. Nothing was ever the same. I emigrated to America in 2016 to pursue my education. In 2018, my father died while in Nigeria. And now, my mother is gone, too. She recently died during one of her episodes. Chinwe Amadi was a God-fearing woman, and I pray God finds it in his heart to have mercy on her soul.
She was my motivation. When I would wake up some days and not want to get out of bed, the idea of helping her is what kept me going. Now that she's gone, though, I'm still motivated to do right by her. But we need your help. Her body is currently being held at a morgue in Nigeria, and my brothers in Nigeria are trying to figure out how to give her a proper burial. But my mother was not working at the time of her death, and my family is stretched thin. We need your help in raising funds for the burial so she can be buried with dignity and respect. Anything that you can spare is appreciated and will go a long way.
