Memorial Expenses for Crystal Reed

On September 21, 2018 while driving to a doctor's appointment. Crystal Ann Reed, a mother of 6 children and 17 grandchildren, suffered a stroke. She was rushed to University of Chicago Hospital where it was determined that she had a brain bleed. She has been unconscious since being admitted to the ICU. 

After performing appropriate tests in order to determine the best course of treatment for the brain bleed and swelling that she was experiencing, we received the unfortunate and heartbreaking news that our mother had 2 metasteses in her brain that had spread from other organs in her body.  

This was devastating news for us as she was relatively healthy. Our mother is 57 years young.  She was just diagnosed with hypertension on September 17, 2018 and driving herself to a doctor's appointment when she had the stroke. 

We, her children Crystal, Sherri, Jonell, Vatonya, Stewart, and Sharon, are trying to cope with the fact that our Mother has terminal cancer that is inoperable. In an effort to pay for her medical expenses as well as final expenses and lighten the financial burden on her children, any contribution will be greatly appreciated.  

We sincerely thank you for your gift... whether it be through donation.... or sincere words of love, comfort and prayer. The outpouring of your love means the world to her children and family.
