Help Fund Doreen's Cremation

22556250_15010914240_r.jpeg22556250_15010914500_r.jpegAs many of you know, my mom was one of the most sweetest, loving, and beautiful person you have ever met. She suffered all her life with breathing condtions, she had chronic COPD, she never smoked a day in her life. She needed a lung transplant but in doing so , she risked a huge complication of death. She spent her most of her life in and out of hospitals, and then eventually spent serveal of her time in nursing homes. 

During the past year, she got worse, so finally we were told to have a trache put in her lungs so she can breathe, we were all so happy for her, and excited that she was going to be able to breathe without the use of oxygen tanks and other breathing machines.

She was then transported to Pavilion nursing home (horribale) after the surgery so she can have extensive care. We were all so happy, a new begining, we get to see our mom cause she lived so close to us! Unfortuantly , she only made it alive there for 5 days.

I remember she called me right before her death, she was in pain, so I came to see her, we had coffee and spent a little time together, and I left happy that she was happy.  An hour after I recieved a phone call from the nursing home that she was unresponsive. I ran back there and came to see my mom laying lifelessly on her bed, surronded by ems, finally they were able to bring her back to life (got a pulse).

She was brought to flushing hospital icu . She was in a servere coma, and we found out that she was brain dead.
We prayed and prayed that she would come out of it, but in our hearts even though we had faith, we knew it was her time.

Yesterday , July 25th at 3:49pm, she had passed on her own. We all love her very much and very sad and heartbroken to see her go.

This all happened so fast, we had no time to prepare for the expensives that would come along her cremantion and memorial services. I feel horribale about this. We were all hoping and excited to spend time with our mom, only to find out that we would be loosing her instead. 

*All funds are contribute to her memorial and cremation services.*

I want to say a BIG thank you, to everyone who contributes, there is no such thing as to small, everything helps.

In loving memory of Doreen Zohios. ❤
