Help Cat lay her mom to rest.

As we all know, Catyanna had been estranged from her mother for many years. (23+) Not only had she leaned this week of her mother's passing, she discovered that this passing was 100% preventable, but that her mother Renee had also been searching for her and never wanted her out of her life.  Due to the on going abuse from her step-father, he continued to keep them apart.  Renee Marie Perkins continued to be held captive in a life no one should ever endure. A life that Catyanna was lucky to escape.  (Having been around Cat back then, I can attest to much of what took place). On Friday, January 26th, Catyanna took the very brave step and confronted her and her mother's abuser, stood her ground and took her mother back. He confessed to taking the money that the state gave him to assist with funeral costs and used it for  "other" things. This left her mother laying in the county coroner's office for 4 days. Catyanna told him that she was taking HER mother back and that he will sign her over.  So now is where we need to come together to help her heal.  So far the funeral costs will come to about $3500 for an urn, creamation, future time off of work to make arrangements (located in Sacramento) celebration of life, travel expenses and any extra fees that come up. She has already had to pay an unexpected $400.00 to the coroner's office to have her mom released to crematorium start this process.  She is beyond stressed out and wants to be able to get this part of the process done as soon as possible.  The MINIMUM needed immediately is $1500 just to get the creamation completed.  Any amount helps. If you do not want to donate to GoFundMe, please contact me and I can direct you to the crematory directly.  Thank you, Catyanna and Moneca (Moneca 916-710-2198)
