Husband Funeral

My name is Wendy Martin, I am a mother of three children and eight step children. I have created this Gofundme account due to the sudden death of my husband, Dennis Martin who past July 15th, 2017. During my husbands illness, we weren't able to obtain life insurance due to his sickness. I'm raising money to bury my husband who passed suddenly and unexpectedly. Dennis battle began with stage 5 kidney failure due to complications with his kidney which spread to his heart causing his heart to weaken. My husband and I decided to move to Las Vegas per his medical doctor's advice due to the cold winters in Minnesota. Shortly after moving to Las Vegas, Dennis was hospitalized on May 20th 2017 at the University Medical Center of Las Vegas due to calcium build up in his legs. He was not able to walk after being hospitalized. I spent many days and nights with my husband helping him with care. I discharged my husband against doctors orders July 8th, 2017. His Cardiologist referred him to see his primary Cardiologist in Minnesota reguarding a possible heart transplant. I had to take off work during our sudden transition. We traveled back to Minnesota for his appointment at the University of Minnesota where he then was diagnosed with an infection in his stomach. The calcium build up and the infection caused his heart to stop beating. My Husband was pronounced dead Saturday, July 15th at 10:30 am. Any donations will be very helpful to give him a send off he well deserves.
