Marlene Medical/Memorial Costs

My sweet Niece Marlene Ziemer was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor on 2/13/15.  She was taken by helicopter to Boston Children’s. On 2/17/15 the surgeons at Boston Children's hospital attempted to remove the tumor. During the surgery the team came to the devastating conclusion that the tumor was too large to remove, and was too aggressive to treat. The tumor had grown since the first diagnosis. Due to the aggressive nature of the tumor and the size there were no options to treat the tumor. My sister (Ariel Ziemer) and her husband (Morgan Ziemer) removed the drain from Marlene's brain and allowed nature to take its course. Today 2/23/15 she passed on, only 10 days after her diagnosis.  She was 10 months old.  This has been a blow to our entire family, and has been extremely crushing to my sister and her husband. We are all grieving. I do not want them to have to deal with the stress of medical bills and memorial costs at this difficult time. Please help out if you can. Every little bit will help. All funds will be used to pay medical bills and memorial costs. Thanks
