Final Expenses for Faith

It is with a heavy heart that I write these words...

Yesterday, a beautiful light went out, and our world is a darker place for it. Faith Kalis, daughter, sister, mother, friend, girlfriend... was killed in a high speed multiple car crash in Camp Verde, AZ at around 4pm on Tuesday August 28, 2018. 

The vehicle was ripped in half upon impact, and Faith's 2 1/2 year old son Jayden was ejected from the car and found strapped in his car seat facedown in the road. He was airlifted to Phoenix Children's Hospital. He is now listed in stable condition, but with broken bones, fractures, and possible internal injuries. He is currently in a neck brace, has 2 IVs in place, and is on a ventilator. They are keeping him heavily sedated at this time. Prayers are urgently requested for Jayden's strength and healing. 

Faith did not survive the crash. 

So many people feel helpless and want to do what they can, so I am starting this fundraiser in hopes that we can make some small difference for the Kalis family, and lessen the burden of the exorbitant cost of funeral expenses for Faith, as well as expenses associated with the medical care for Jayden's road to recovery. 

Please give what you can, and share this campaign. Additional fundraisers will be held locally throughout the coming weeks. 

We love you, Faith. You will be missed.
