Funeral Expenses for Gina Owen

Most of you know that my precious niece, Jonica, moved in with us in June.  Her mom was diagnosed with stage 2 lung cancer March 2017. She took chemo and had part of her lung removed.  She fought hard and was told it was in remission.  Then in September 2017 we got the phone call to let us know that the cancer had returned and was now in her brain.  She was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer.  She has been through more chemo and radiation but with no success.  The cancer has now spread to her bones and liver.  The prognosis is not good.  We are begging for your help.  She does not have the money for a proper burial.  Her sweet Jonica would love nothing more than to be able to say good bye to her mother with a lovely funeral to celebrate her life.  I have taken on the responsibility of raising these funds and handling the payment to the funeral home. We found out today that hospice will be starting tomorrow.  We really do not know how long she has. Any donation, big or small, will help this family.  Thank you so much for supporting a family in need.  We know God will take care of this for us and God will wrap his loving arms around Gina and her loved ones through this difficult time.

May God Bless You for your generosity and donations.
