Significant Loss Of My Dad.

On August 16th, 2018, my dad, Nosa Eke, passed away due to a rapid succession of appendicitis, peritonitis, and sepsis. His death was sudden and unexpected, and as my dad was the sole income provider in our family, this loss leaves not only a massive emotional and physical void in our lives, but also a financial gap. 

We are fundraising for scholarship and expenses, which helps me cover financial needs for college - I attend the University of North Texas at Denton - as well as memorial and medical expenses for my dad, and immediate expenses for my mom.

My dad, having been married to my mom, Carretta "Pinkie" Holliday Eke for 21 years, was a lifelong provider, protector, and priest for my family. He took pride in taking care of us in any way he could in all facets of life, physical, financial, emotional, spiritual, and so forth.

His biggest wish for me was to earn a college education, and I want to fulfill that. It's something that always kept us close, and education, like my dad's impact on my life, is timeless. No financial amount can lessen the emotional pain, but it will allow me to reach the goals we set together. I want to ensure that his efforts and intentions live on through our actions as a community.   

The funds are needed as soon as possible to keep my college education on track for spring graduation in 2021, and to meet any and all expenses related to this tragedy. 

ANY donation is welcome! There is no limit to how much you can give, as it is all going to be used to restore as much normalcy at this time.

We greatly appreciate your support and love.
