Please Help Support Marilee and kids

Those who know Marilee would describe her as an incredibly strong, independent woman who would give the shirt off of her back to help anyone with a need. 

Now this family needs us!  This year alone, the Patterson family has suffered the loss of Brock, Marilee's husband and very best friend, and the father of the children, after a horrific battle with cancer.  As if you could even find a new norm after this, just when they were starting to figure some things out, the family lost Marilee's oldest child, Ethan, in a tragic car accident caused by a drunk driver.  The accident left Ethan with significant brain damage and the inability to sustain life without artificial means of intervention.

Ethan, carrying on the same kindness, generosity, and giving nature, as Marilee, donated his organs prior to leaving this earthly life so that life could be given to another.

The financial strain of losing one loved one, much less two, is huge.  I pray that as friends, family, and community, we can provide the support that she needs in this area so she can continue to grieve the loss of her husband and very best friend, and now do what no parent should ever have to do, and grieve the tragic loss of her child without the worry and fear of financial impact at this time. 

Please help us support Marilee her two additional precious children that she has to continue to raise and guide through this life.

This GoFundMe account is linked directly to Marilee and all donations go straight to her.
