Pay it Foward

I have been "living" and "fighting" for my husband's life for 2 months and 18 days at St Joseph's Hospital. Unfortunately, he passed away on March 31st.
The main reason of his death was a septic shock and pneumonia, weighing 151kg. When he was sent to the hospital, he was diagnosed with unknown bacteria and internal bleeding.
Me and my dearest husband came to Canada for a 3 months trip but he got sick leading to his death.
During this time, I've got helped with the Central Toronto Community Health Centre with exams and hospital admissions.
Finally, what it was to be a vacation trip became a nightmare. Where I was stuck in a place regarding to my husband's health condition, that trapped us in Canada.

At that time I acquired a debt of $ 87,000 from the hospital.
I count with the collaboration of each one so that we can pay this debt and return to Brazil.
