Official GoFundMe for Arionna Buckanaga & family

Donation protected
Arionna was a loving mother, daughter, sister, niece, cousin, friend to many. Monday night (5/4/20) while driving home she was an innocent victim of a tragic gunshot wound to the head. She was unresponsive at the scene. Ambulance rushed her to HCMC where they did everything they could to keep her alive. Unfortunately her brain had too much swelling and she was considered brain dead. She was kept on life support so that she could bless fully donate her organs so others could survive. Sadly because of the Covid-19 virus family and friends except for her mom and uncle were not aloud to go say there goodbye's to her. Instead we were camped outside the hospital hoping she knew we were there with her.  UPDATE: As of Friday 5/8/20 she was taken off the ventilator and donated her organs, she was able to save 3 lives. 

She leaves behind her soon to be 2 year old baby boy, her mother and her brothers and sisters, as well as many other family and friends. She was in the middle of planning her sons 2nd birthday party that was scheduled for this month. Her son Ma'kai was everything to her, she would have done anything for him. She was such a beautiful young girl who did not deserve this. 

This money is going to be able help Tiffany (Arionna's mom)  start a college fund for Ma'kai which will go into a trust fund. Arionna was taken from Ma'kai too soon and she wasn't given the chance to start a college fund, so we would like to be able to do this for them. This was such a sudden tragic loss. She was in the middle of planning a birthday party for Ma'kai and we are hoping to use a little bit of this money to help with his birthday party.  Arionna had a bright future and we know she would have provided Ma'kai with the best life possible. 

Thank you to anyone who can find it in their heart to donate. My niece will be able to look down and know her son is being taken care of.
