Rachel's goodbye

My name is Eric Betz my sister was in a horrible car accident years ago that resulted in her being prescribed opiate painkillers to which she became addicted. After she was no longer able to get them from a doctor they started coming from the street and unfortunately like so many young people now and especially in NY she turned to heroin. It destroyed her life she lost everything her home her daughter all of her possessions relationships with people that cared about her and now unfortunately her life. She was in MICU at Buffalo General and had been for over 6 weeks with a horrific infection in her heart and lungs that despite the best efforts of a team of doctors and surgical intervention did not respond to any treatment. All of us did all we could but the monster that is addiction took her .....Me and my father are not financially able at this moment to pay for her final expenses and that is why I made this post we need help . I made the amount a dollar because we don't know what we will need and we want to set up a trust if we are over for Rachel's daughter Victoria if we even get enough for what we need ....I have been trying to be very descriptive about what my family has been going through dealing with this on my Facebook because often when young people pass this way no one is made aware of anything till they announce the person is passed and maybe if even one person sees what the people you care about go through in the aftermath they might put the drugs down and get some help me my father and my sisters daughter love her very much and this is a horrible feeling that I wish on no one but unfortunately it is becoming almost a everyday occurrence... We thank anyone that can help more than words will do justice..and we thank anyone that takes the time to read this and reshares this post. If you have problems get help please dont put the people that love you through this hell and if you know someone that needs help or a eye opener show them this add me on Facebook and show them the hell we have been going through have them reach out and I will explain exactly how this feels. Thank you for looking and of course for any help we may receive  Eric Betz Kevin Betz and her daughter Victoria Betz...Truly thank you all and please reshare.... We are also going to get some necklaces with some way of containing her ashes if anyone that helps would like one just let us know and I will be putting up a link for some T-shirts that can be made available tomorrow after I get some sleep ......I made this days ago but felt it would be a curse to put it out in the world unless she actually passed
