Gamboa Family Assistance

Hello, my name is Pamela.  I have created this request for financial help for my beautiful sister Susan, and her 2 amazing sons.  Sadly, on December 19, 2017,  Mark, beloved husband and father, passed away after his long and brave battle with Lewy Body Dementia.  Mark was a vibrant, hard working, honest man, loved by so many.  He could walk in a room full of stangers, and leave with many new friends. 

Susan has been an amazingly loving and caring wife as Mark's full time caretaker for the past 4 years.  Prior to Mark's initial diagnosis and rapid decline, he  was experiencing the early stages of this devistating disease, affecting his ability to work which resulted in many hardships. 

I am requesting financial assistance to provide an opportunity for Susan to heal and grieve, to search for a long term job,  as well as cover Mark's final expenses. Additional need is for rent  and living expenses during this very difficult and emotional time.
Funds are needed right away due to the immediate termination of disability insurance upon Mark's passing.  

Your kind donation is greatly appreciated
during these dark days ahead for Susan and her boys.

Mark was loved immensely by his family and will be lovingly remembered and missed.
