Funeral expenses

Hello friends, I've created this GOFUNDME account for my cousin Vanessa Franquez. Vanessa has Lupus, an auto immune disease that is difficult to see pain or suffering at first glance but anyone with Lupus is in constant pain and their body is self destructing within. Vanessa is one of the Strongest young women I know. After being diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 15, trying to live a normal life being in pain all the time, suffering kidney failure at age 21 which lead to both kidneys being removed to save her life. She had to do dialysis everyday for 2 years until Stanford University Medical Center was able to perform a Kidney and Bone Marrow transplant. The transplant allowed Vanessa to enjoy almost another 10 years until she suffered from multiple strokes last August 2017. She has been in the hospital since with multiple complications of her Lupus disease that caused her whole body to continue to fail. On January 7th Vanessa's body finally gave in as she went into Hospice/Comfort Care. She has not been able to respond to family since she's gone into Hospice and any day now Dr's say she will be in Peace and no longer in pain. Her husband, parents and siblings are now trying to prepare for her funeral services which will come quicker than they expected. A simple share, like or donation are much appreciated by myself and family to help lay Vanessa to rest. Thank you!

All funds will be deposited directly to Marie Rivera (Vanessa’s Mother) to pay for all expenses
