Help for Kanthavel Family

My Husband Mr. Kanthavel Ramachandran was born in Thanjavur, TN, India in a middle-class family and living in USA. He worked in Caudalie USA Inc., and recently moved  Gogoair, Chicago.  He was a kind- hearted, simple and jovial person with a pleasant smile always.  

On 11/5/2019, Kanthavel started his normal day and heading to office. After parking the car in Arlington heights Railway station (Chicago north west suburb), while trying to catch the Metra train he got a massive heart attack and collapsed.  

I came as a dependent in 2009 and Kanthavel was the only bread winner for our family. We are blessed with 2 daughters - Rameela (7 years) / Rashmika (6 years).  

Due to this sudden tragedy, our parents are traveling to USA. Funeral and final formalities are in progress along with Friends & Family support.  

Many friends have reached out via emails, texts and messages over the last few days asking how to help. Being dependent, I request Financial support for paying hospital, funeral expenses and to support our Children's better future. 

This campaign has been created as a way to offer our thoughts, prayers and contributions towards helping the family sail through the tough time until they can financially support themselves. Together we all can make it happen. Every donation counts, however small.
