Hi, my name is Sandy, and for those of you who don't know me, Adrianne is my sister. We don't share a mother or father, and I'm no longer married to her brother, but if anybody knows anything about this family, you know that once you are family, you are ALWAYS family. They welcome you with open arms and never let go. And I wouldn't let them if they tried. Adrianne IS and always will be my sister, and her family will always be my family.
That is why I'm here. With permission already given, I want to fundraise for monetary donations to help make things just a little bit easier for Kris and Spike. After suffering cardiac arrest and a traumatic and devastating brain injury, all life-sustaining measures were stopped on Sunday, and Adrianne has been moved to hospice to rest comfortably for the rest of her days. Mom (Kris) told me the other night that she had no idea how she would put her baby girl to rest. NO mother should ever have to wonder that. Please consider donating money, no matter how big or small, to help put her mind at ease. Her focus should be on spending time with Adrianne in her final minutes, hours, or days here on Earth. Watching a mother grieve her child, who is still here, is the most heartbreaking thing I've ever seen. Spike is trying to be strong for his sister and his mother, and I would love nothing more for him to find some peace and comfort in knowing the bills will be taken care of and that his sister will be sent off from this world in a way just as beautiful as she lived.
I appreciate your consideration and all of the prayers and good thoughts for Adrianne and for Kris and Spike as well as they navigate through unimaginable grief.
