Help for Elena

Elena Huddleston needs our support. Last Saturday, the unthinkable happened and her daughter Shelby was found as the victim of a homicide on the side of the road on I25. Unfortunately, Shelby battled drug addiction for the last few years, and it likely got her tangled up with some terrible people, who did the unthinkable to her. The police are pursuing it as an ongoing homicide investigation. As Elena says, she knew with the battles her daughter faced, that there could always be that devastating call – she just never imagined this would be the way it would happen. As Elena’s support and community, we are all in terrible shock.
In the face of a tumultuous past few years, battling Shelby’s addiction and illnesses, Shelby gave birth to a beautiful little girl, Natalie, now 14 months. Nattie is the light that shines behind Elena’s eyes; she is everything to her. However with the surmounting costs of planning a funeral, being an official co-parent to Nattie (with Nattie’s father, Rod), as well as being out on medical leave herself – Elena’s bills are beginning to pile up. One of our Littleton family members is in dire need and it is on us, her community, to raise her up. Even the most seemingly insignificant donation could help them.The smallest bit helps and the sooner we can get the money to her the better.

GoFundMe wants to be sure you all understand that I am Tami, a co-worker of Elena's from Littleton, who is looking to raise money for her to pay her mounting bills for the funeral, baby Nattie and whatever else is necessary to ensure she is able to get through this terrible time.
