Honoring the Memory of Vijayalakshmi Venkatachalam

Donation protected
With heavy hearts, we gather to remember the cherished life of Vijayalakshmi Venkatachalam, affectionately known as Viji. A devoted wife, mother, and sister, Viji's sudden passing at the tender age of 50 has left us all in mourning. On March 31st, 2024, she tragically succumbed to complications from cardiac arrest, leaving behind her beloved husband, Saravanan, and three adoring daughters, Chitra (25 years), Aarthi (22 years), and Ramya (17 years).

In the wake of this profound loss, her family faces unforeseen financial burdens, including, enormous emergency medical care expenses in a foreign country, repatriation expenses, funeral expenses and ongoing support. This being the Easter Holiday weekend, everything taking time to get them back to USA and this adding to the additional financial burden.

The circumstances of Viji's passing are especially heartbreaking. She and her husband were en route to India to attend her brother's funeral, who had bravely battled stage 4 cancer. Tragically, the next day after her brother's passing, Viji suffered cardiac arrest during the journey, prompting an emergency landing in Canada. Despite the efforts of plane personnel and medical professionals, Viji was pronounced deceased after many hours of life support and efforts to revive her.

In this time of immense grief, we humbly seek your support. Your generosity will provide vital assistance to Viji's family as they navigate this profound loss. Every donation, regardless of size, will make a meaningful impact.

Please consider contributing to this fundraiser and sharing it with your networks. Your kindness will honor Viji's memory and offer much-needed support to her grieving family during this unimaginably difficult time.

All funds raised will directly cover Viji's funeral expenses and support her family in their time of need.

Thank you for your compassion, prayers, and generosity.
