Stephanie Veloso Rodas Funeral Fund

In the early hours on Sunday, March 18th we unexpectedly lost our beautiful angel Stephanie Rodas.

Many of you know the heart wrenching battle she has faced for 15 years against a debilitating eating disorder. A  battle that  has encompassed almost her entire life, a war that she waged against until her very last moment. The courage that she possessed is inspirational and she wanted to show the world the true face of this crippling disease. A disease that many do not take seriously and that lacks the proper financial and medical resources and tools to aide people like her to a proper recovery.

Stephanie will continue to be the voice of those who don't have one and continue to inspire improvements and better care for those like her.

We thank those of you who have supported Stephanie during her trials and tribulations and with a heavy heart I humbly come to you  asking to lift Stephanie up once more and help us give her the sending off that she deserves.

The bright light that Stephanie possessed is finally free to shine at its maximum potential without any more limitations or struggles.

This is a heartbreaking loss for our family, friends and her community and the financial element of bringing her back home (she was living in Los Angeles) and preparing a memorial and funeral service is overwhelming. Any donation is greatly appreciated and all funds raised will be directly allocated to her funeral costs.

We are forever grateful for your support and thoughts.  Lets send our Angel off with beauty and love.
