Celebration of Ruth Olaniyi's Life

Hi, my name is Elijah Olaniyi and I am from Newark, NJ.
Ruth Abidoye Olaniyi is my mother and a loving mother of 7 who passed away on 7/10/2017.
On 01/03/2016 life for our mother changed forever as she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. Being informed that she had less than 6 month to live. She fought a fight that was incredibly hard, through Chemotherapy and other treatments she continued to live well after 6 months. On May 28, 2017 she rushed back to the hospital for blood clots in both of her legs.
While at the hospital, she contracted an infection, and the blood clots as well as the cancer had moved to her lungs. On July 7, 2017, her family was informed that there was no longer anything the doctors could do because her organs were beginning to shut down. On 7/10/2017, God call his angel home. Ruth did not have life insurance because she believed she could continue to defy the odds. Please donate any amount to help out the 7 kids and husband of the Olaniyi family that was left behind to pay for the funeral service.  We would be taking this money out of the fund to pay the Whigham  Funeral home in with services being held on August 5th with a time to be determined at a later date.
