Kelsey Giese Funeral Expenses

This is a statement from Kelsey’s sister Kera.....

On October 3rd Kelsey suffered from a severe heart attack and internal brain damage. Her heart had stopped for less than 30 minutes but it was too late. Although they were able to revive her, the internal bleeding had taken over. She was on life support for 3 days but never regained consciousness. On her daughter's 12th birthday, Kelsey passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and loved ones.

On October 6th, 2006, my twin sister brought a miracle in to this world. Against all odds, Jazmyne Makiah Jacobs was born at 1 lb 15 oz and could fit in the palm of our hand. 4 years later she brought another amazing boy in this world. Catlin Hunter Jacobs was born July 26th, 2010. Instead of mourning this day, we choose to celebrate 2 beautiful lives from now on.

I have chosen to ask for donations for not only the funeral of my twin sister, but travel expenses for those who live out of town to come and give my family the support we need to process and grieve our sudden devastating and life altering loss. We will never be able to thank anyone enough for all the love and support everyone has shown us already.
