Vanya's Final Expenses Fund

It is with great sadness that we share the news of a beloved brothers passing. Ivan (Vanya) Avilla was only 24 years old. Vanya was a beautiful human being with a heart of gold. He was loved my many but his best friend and biggest supporter, was his sister Elena. His passing has left all of us who loved him with grieving hearts,


While driving home from work in the early morning on a dark quiet road, his car collided into a slow moving trailer with no lights, that crossed in front of him. After months of struggle through the extensive injuries Elena stayed by his side in the hospital until Vanya lost his hold on life on December 17th.


While Elena struggles to hold it together and support her daughter, she is not in a position to face the financial realities of her brothers passing. She needs the help of all of us to cover final expenses.
