Help for The Padron Family

Brenda Padron lost Ariel Mezher, her 18 year old daughter, in a suspicious house fire in Orlando on October 25.  About 5 days later, the body found in this fire was later identified to be Ariel's (see WKMG News 6 ClickOrlando Broadcast).

Brenda used her limited paid time off and also unpaid days to grieve and plan her daughter's final arrangements.  Brenda is hard-working and employed full time, but fell behind in her bills (mainly rent and utilities). 

Her family has stood behind her this far in her loss and where they could, so she needs help so she can bounce back while she recovers from the loss of her beloved only daughter.
