Help Steven Michael‘s Family Lay His Mom to Rest

Right now we are all facing unique and difficult challenges. But it is hard to imagine the difficulties faced when someone loses a loved one during this time, especially someone as important as their mother. That is the tragedy Steven Michael and his family have faced. 

Steven is an incredible person who was raised by an equally incredible woman. Sandra Montino was born in the slums of Bacolod City in the Philippines. When Steven was born, she made the ultimate sacrifice a mother could make to ensure her son had the best life possible in difficult circumstances. Sandra left Steven in the care of his grandma while she left to work in Saudi Arabia for 16 years to help provide for him. That was 16 years of missing the close moments of watching her son grow up all to ensure he would have a better life than she had.

For the past 10 years Steven had been unable to visit his mother. That is 10 years since he was able to hug her, give her a kiss or just be in the presence of a woman who sacrificed everything for him. That is why her untimely passing is all the more difficult. And due to the issues with COVID, he is unable to travel to be with his family during this difficult time.

Steven needs your help right now to assist his family in providing his mother with a peaceful rest. Every penny donated is going to help cover funeral expenses and expenses the family is facing with her passing. If you can support in any way please do. His mother deserves nothing but the absolute best and Steven and his family need the support to be there for his mother in death as she had been there for them in life. 

Please help if you can!
