Funeral expenses & ongoing support

Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read this.
Today, we lost a beautiful daughter, mom, sister and friend. Cara was a beautiful spirit with so much love in her heart. She was an amazing mom to her only miracle daughter Lily.
A few years ago she lost her dad after a long battle with his medical issues and a couple years ago lost one of her brothers.
We are raising money to help cover the cost of Cara’s funeral and also put some money aside for her young daughter.
Her mother, Mary, will need all the help she can get as she is struggling herself.
I know this is a high goal but we are hoping to meet or exceed it to help this family out that has been through just too much lately.
Lily has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and so her medical bills and therapy sessions can get expensive. If you can contribute at all it will be extremely appreciated. Also please share as much as possible.
Thank you all so much and God Bless
