Shane Boyle & Judy Boyle Memorial

Hannah Jones Rogers  MENA, AR

The world lost a wonderful man due to complications of type 1 diabetes. My cousin, Shane Boyle, put everything into taking care of his ailing mother at the expense of his own needs. Shane's mother, Judy Boyle, passed away on March 11th and we lost Shane to diabetes exactly a week later on March 18th.
After his death, we learned that Shane lost his prescription benefits when he moved to Mena, Arkansas to care for his mom. We found a GoFundMe where he was trying to raise $750 to get just one more month of insulin and supplies. Unfortunately, he didn't get help in time. Shane died because he was trying to stretch out his life saving insulin to make it last longer.
Shane was working hard to take care of his mother's funeral arrangements when he died. Her service had to be cancelled because of the unexpected financial burden of losing two family members in a week's time. I am hoping we can raise the funds for a combined funeral service for Shane and Judy Boyle. If we can raise more than is needed for the service, any remaining funds would go to a charity that provides insulin to diabetics like Shane. We don't want other families to suffer the pain of losing a loved one because they couldn't afford medications.
Thank you for any help you can provide, even if all you can offer is a kind message or sharing a special memory.

I am so sorry for the loss of Nick and his mom. As a type 1 diabetic myself, who relies on the lifesaving insulin, his death should not have happened.... not in this day and age. I wish I had known him, or at least about his situation. My prayers are with him

Shane's story has rocked me to my core. I'm sorry we live in a society where corporate profits are more important than making sure someone gets insulin for a month. I wish this could be more. I hope this helps.

I didn't know Shane or his mom, however, I have a family member with type 1 diabetes so feeling a great deal of empathy for such a sad loss.
