For BT's Family

My sister was engaged to marry the man she has spent the past 15 years with and now he has passed away and she has been left to raise their three children on her own.

BT was struck by a vehicle on September 2nd and fell into a coma, due to medical complications he was then kept in a medically induced coma until he lost the battle on September 26th.

Lea and BT's youngest daughter is not even 2 months old yet.  Lea has had to take an extended maternity leave due to these events. 

Money raised will go towards bills, house payments and preparing for Christmas for the children.

BT has two other children and part of the money will go towards providing them Christmas gifts as well. 

Anything donated is greatly appreciated.
