My niece Melissa was the sweetest, kindest and strongest woman I have ever known ! She was diagnosed with diabetes when she was just 10 years old. Through the years she dealt with a tremendous amount of complications and hospital stays including a kidney pancreas transplant which her body ended up rejecting. She was on daily dialysis and was in the hospital more than she was out in the last few years , yet I never heard her complain.
She was recently hospitalized with two types of infections in her blood which the doctors feared damaged her heart even more than it already was. They took her in for a routine procedure to put a scope down her throat to get a better look at her heart, and her heart stopped when she was under anesthesia. She was basically unresponsive from then
until she passed on March 22.
Unfortunately due to her health she wasn’t able obtain life insurance.
So now my brother and sister in law Dwayne and Dalice Dier and Melissa’s biological father and step mother Andy and Esther Poole are not only grieving the loss of their daughter they are faced with raising her 16 yr old son Michael and having to come up with the money to bury her .
My family and I would greatly appreciate any donation you could give to go towards these expenses and we thank you in advance!
