Remembering Rachel: A Memorial Fund

$5,595 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 80 people in 12 months
Created April 10, 2017
On Saturday April 8, 2017 after a long, and courageous fight with Batten Disease, Sweet Rachel left this earth and her pain behind. 

It goes without saying that Rachel had an impact on everyone she met. Always with a smile on her face, and sass in her voice, Rachel would command the room, and have everyone smiling.  It is in this spirit that we want to honor her. She will be missed beyond words.  

It is my hope to raise enough money to have a big party with lots of Vegan cake to celebrate Rachel's life.

I'd also like to help her family out with bills, including medical bills and  their decreased income while Kat locates new work...I'd like them to not have to worry while they grieve. 

I appreciate everyone taking the time to check out this page. Whether you can donate or not. Let's not stop fighting Batten Disease.

Thank you,
Christina

Hi everyone :)

Wow! I am floored and humbled by the outpouring of caring and generosity from everyone that has donated to, and shared this page.

Just a quick update...

Rachel's cremation will be tomorrow, which is a huge relief for the family. Soon they will be able to have her back at home where she belongs. They are hoping to have a service/celebration of life for Rachel sometime early this summer... When the heartbreak isn't quite as raw. Obviously the pain of losing a child, and sister will never leave them, however they need time to grieve privately.

Kat posted a graphic on her Facebook wall the other day which I thought was good information. I am sharing it here. As friends of her and the family we grasp for the right words, any words that might convey both our sorrow and love for them.

Again I cannot thank everyone enough!
