Memorial Fund for Sydney Manley

Sydney (Coari) Manley was an 8-year-old girl who impacted the lives of countless people with her bravery and smile in the face of unimaginable struggles throughout her short life. 

Her parents, Dana and Matthew Manley held vigil at her bedside and comforted her until her very last breath. They have dedicated every moment over the past 3 years to helping her fight the excruciating battle against cancer. They have lost jobs and took leave to be by her side throughout her entire journey.  Her cancer didn’t stop the bills from coming in. It didn’t stop the need to put food on the table for their family of 7 people. 

As her family and friends, we made a promise that we would send her off in the way this princess deserved to be honored but we need your help.  Please consider donating to help cover the cost of her funeral expenses for this family and allow them to be at peace with the financial burdens surrounding her treatment and care. 

To our “Super Sydney”, you will never know how much you were loved. We will NEVER forget you. Rest now with Jesus.
