Support for Ben Pitchford family

Lexi Pitchford moved into her dorm at UND, ready to start her first year of college. 3 days later, she tragically and unexpectedly lost her father to an undiagnosed heart disease. Lexi is devastated trying to juggle the loss of her father, the expenses of putting him to rest, and now anxious and uncertain about her academic future.
She is currently enrolled in premed psychology, and dreams of becoming a neurosurgeon. I'm asking friends and family to donate to help ease this burden for Lexi. Ben was so proud of Lexi's intelligence, strength, and determination; his top priority was to ensure she had all the resources she needed to succeed.
Ben has always been a generous friend, he'd give you his last dollar and the shirt off his back if he felt it would help. He has gladly assisted friends with moving, home repair, electrical work,  advice and so much more. Let's repay Ben for his kindness by helping him with what was most important to him. Lexi has been so grateful for the amount of love and support. Your words of kindness mean everything.
We cant undo the pain, or diminish the gravity such a tragic loss. What we can do is help ease the financial burden. Lets help our dear friend Ben's only wish come to fruition.
