Help Aaron and 7 kids who lost Mom to cancer

On December 28th my sister in law, Autumn Cogdill,  lost her battle with stage 4 breast cancer at only 38 years old. A woman of faith, she left behind a loving husband and 7 beautiful children ages 2-18. With only a few short months’ notice, this tragedy struck everyone hard and by surprise, with little time to prepare.

Autumn was full of life and love, with plenty to spread around her large family; the girls Keara, Analiah, Ember and Erin-Marie, along with the boys Blaine, Samuel and Luke. In addition to the massive effort to raise the children, she also took it upon herself to home school them. In there she still found time to enjoy quilting, camping and crafting.

My brother Aaron could really use some help with the difficult tasks ahead of him in taking care of their children as well as service costs for Autumn. Even before the grief can begin to subside, Aaron still has to make sure the kids are taken care while he works, a herculean task to say the least, all the while comforting and trying to explain to the youngest why Mommy isn’t coming home. With Erin-Marie being only 2 years old, this will be a long and arduous process. In addition, as many of you unfortunately know, funeral costs are quite draining on a family.

I wanted to set up this GoFundMe account to try and ease the burden on him and the children, and be able to provide them support when they most need it. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
