It’s every mother’s nightmare, and every stranger’s heartache to hear that someone has lost their daughter. The heartache deepens when you find out that that daughter was going to be a mother herself.
I am saddened to share this sad story with you, but this was a close friend of mine’s friend and I want to help out in their time of need, in anyway I can.
Mariana was 19 weeks pregnant with a little girl, her first baby. She was so excited to be a new mother like every expecting mother-to-be is. She had an extreme close bond with her own mother, and together they were excitedly planning for this new addition to their loving family. They were best friends and everyone always said their relationship is what every mother wants with their own daughter.
On January 24th, Mariana was killed instantly in a car accident leaving her mother and the rest of their family in devastation. She was only 20, her life had yet to fully begin as was the life of her unborn little girl.
Angie, her mother has been working hard trying to finish her degree but her degree is threatened by the expenses building up and she might have to quit to get a job to pay for it all. People don’t realize in the states, even in death where there isn’t hospital stays or treatments, it’s still very expensive for the family.
Mariana’s closest friends have put together this fundraiser to help support Angie both financially and emotionally. With expenses hitting close to $12K, this memorial fund is here to help Angie so that she may finish her degree and the family can mourn their daughter without the added pressures of bills.
Mariana was a kindred heart, working in a assisted living home at only 20, she gave time and attention to each patient, making their end of life full of happiness and laughter. Mariana’s life will long be remembered through her loving family and friends. At such a young age she helped so many others, so let’s now all help her, by taking just a moment to click HERE and donate.
Any amount small or large can have a huge impact on someone’s life. I have decided to not have Starbucks for a month and donate the money I would spend there on things that are unnecessary and put it towards something that can change a person’s life. I can’t take Angie’s pain away but I can try helping ease it by showing my support. Will you do the same?
