SUPPORTING A FAMILY THROUGH TRAGEDY

$7,500 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 70 people in 39 months
This is an incredibly unfortunate and tragic story, with an intense blessing. Our Beloved Nicole Herman-Brown, from Campbell River, is going through the unimaginable. She has just been informed that the father of her children, the love of her life, the man she's been involved with for seven years, has tragically passed away this past weekend. He did Not have life insurance and she is left to pick up the pieces and figure out her next life steps all on her own. Let's come together and help this widowed mother of two, soon to be three. 

Dillon Brown was a compasionate and dedicated father of 2, his love for his children and his wife was undeniable. Nicole is an amazing, beautiful, hard working, young mother of two, and her stregth and determination is beyond admirable. Not only is this unexpected tragic news too much for one person to emotionally/physically/mentally handle, but now she has just been informed that she is also pregnant with his child.
 
This is the ultimate time of need; A woman who must grieve the man who meant everything to her, grieve the man her children looked up to and cherished, she must grieve the loss of his life while staying strong for her children and continuing to care for them every single day with strong composure and grace - while hormonally pregnant! How is a woman, or any single person, supposed to do all of that AND provide financial means for their family? How is a person supposed to just carry on right away and upkeep a 9-5 job and financial stability after such a misfortunate loss? A person can only handle so much, it pains me, and everyone around her, SO deeply to know the heartache she is going through. We cannot have this stress affect her unborn child, this is a blessing baby and, Please, as her family and friends, we must step up and help, every single little bit helps right now. Anything will help make this transition, to a shocking new life chapter, just a little easier. To all acquaintances and the community, please don't hesitate to donate to this unforeseen cause; Even just 5$-10$-20$, it all adds up, and is much appreciated.

Please, let's come together as a community support system to help lighten her load financially to get through this immensely tough time, for her and her two, soon to be three, kids.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts,

From the Family & Friends of Nicole Herman-Brown.

We would really like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for coming out to the celebration of life this past Easter weekend. <3 It all came together so nicely, and thank you very much to the people who spoke and shared stories, remembering Dillon in a positive light was the goal and we certainly attained that. Thank you all, we know his spirit is smiling and feeling blessed knowing the ones he loved came out to support the positive memory of him. Dillon was a family man, and cherished his friends and family, he held the ones he loved on a high pedestal and would give the shirt off his back for someone he cared for deeply. The present of presence is a gift that keeps on giving, thank you all so kindly for being there<3.
Please Share and Care for his family, as he would have done for you<3

Some information for the Celebration of Life this weekend:

"Dillons celebration of life will be held this Saturday, March 26 at the Quinsam hall in Campbell River from 1-4pm. Children are of course welcome. I will be playing his fight footage, there will be photos, food, and lots of memories to be shared. It will be a less formal event, Im thinking white dress (not black) to go with the light hearted theme, but of course wear whatever you like and are comfortable in. I want to bring together everyone who was a part of dillons life and remember him in the most amazing way. I know he would want everyone to come together and celebrate his life, not be sad. We look forward to seeing everyone there :)" - Nicole Brown

Thank you so very much for all the support! It's such a blessing to have friends / family / the community come together like this is such a time of need.

Thank you all so kindly.

Please Note: We are currently working on sorting out the fine print details with gofundme directly, just to reassure the public that these donations will be solely for Nicole and the children. Gofundme does a screening process to eliminate frodulent activity, and we are gladly taking these steps to clear up any skepticism.
