Ward Family Funeral Expenses

I am asking for any help you could provide as goodwill to help my sister Catheryne Ward with the funeral expense for her husband David who passed at the age of 55 early Jan 19th from a short but traumatic battle with lung cancer. Prior to cancer David was a couple of years in and out of the hospital with arterial blockages, operations and abcesses and host of other health issues. This also wasn't his first battle with cancer. The reality is that David was not well for many, many years and the stress compounded within his body. This also has put an incredible strain and stress on my sister and her children.

Now, my sister at 46 years old is left with 7 children (3 children still living at home), she is in danger of her hydro being cut  off and is behind on all of her bills due to long term expenses associated with her husband and his disabilities. She doesn't even have the funds necessary to lay her husband to rest respectfully or even pay for his cremation.

I am asking you to consider contributing what you can even if it's simply contributing the cost of your afternoon coffee/tea as every dollar is going to truly count here.

Thank you from my heart of hearts for considering a contribution to a stranger. One person, one donation can have a profound impact when we each help support.
