Junior's Farewell Fund

Junior was a blessing that was taken away from us on the 2nd March. Junior was more than a son, brother and friend, to all who knew him he was the definitive ray of sunshine in our lives.

Junior has been suffering from asthma for the past two years, with doctors telling us that it is not severe and that he shall grow out of it. Unfortunately on the morning of the 2nd of March, Junior woke up coughing and short of breath within a matter of seconds, this escalated and Junior started telling his mother that he was unable to breathe. He then fell to the ground  of the living room floor. His mother tried reassuring Junior whilst waiting for the ambulance. Unfortunately there was nothing to be done, he died in his mother's arms after falling into cardiac arrest. 

Our family are not coping very well with this tragedy. We have been struck to the core with the news of Junior's death. We had looked forward to decades more time with Junior. To build together, laugh together, cry together. This tragedy has taken away any chance of creating more memories with Junior. Our hearts are broken and will never be truly mended. There is no end in sight to the pain that we currently feel. Our only hope is to celebrate his life in all that we do from henceforth.

The aim of this fundraiser is to raise enough money to give our best boy the best send off as he deserved. No one plans for the death of their healthy 9 year old son and this was an unwelcome shock to all of the family. His mother is a single parent with four other children to take care of. None of which are out of full time education and therefore unable to significantly help her financially with burying her youngest boy.

We are begging for anything, anyone with a kind heart can spare. Please help us bury our brother. The funeral is intended for the 20th of March, 2018. All payments are to be made by the 15th of March for Junior to be laid at rest. Please, anything will be whole hardheartedly appreciated.
