A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed- Help Support Meagan
Organized by: Dana Frank
Meagan is a beautiful, thoughtful, kind, caring and intelligent girl. After a series of unfortunate and tragic events, her life has been forever changed. In July of 2015, Meagan lost her Father to an aggressive cancer. The battle was incredibly tough and Meagan moved back to Edmonton to be with her family only one week before her Father passed. She decided to stay in Edmonton to be with her Mother who suffered the loss of her lifelong partner. On January 7th, Meagan arrived home early from work to check on her Mother, and found that she too had suddenly and unexpectedly passed. No one should have to go through this kind of life altering trauma, especially not a 28 year old. Meagan's life has taken a turn that will change her future undoubtedly. This fundraiser has been created to allow Meagan some piece of mind while going through the long and hard grieving process she has just begun. So often in our culture today, people are expected to grieve quickly and quietly. The loss of two parents in less than 6 months requires extensive grieving. So much support, love and compassion is needed to help our friend through this very important time in her life. As the sole executor of her Mother's life, Meagan has been handed a responsibility unimaginable for anyone so young. Her grieving has been interrupted by meetings with lawyers, banks, funeral directors, etc. Meagan's job has offered her as much time off as she needs and it is important that during this time she is able to process her new future without the burden of finances, and also with the support of friends and loved ones. The funds raised will be used to book flights for Meagan to and from Kelowna so that she can visit us- her friends and new family- and receive the insurmountable support and love that we all would like to share with her. We have been in contact with the funeral home and will also be using funds to purchase Meagan and her sister Jess cremation jewelry in memory of their Mother to go with the ones they have for their Father. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any donation that you can make and want every one to know that the entirety of this fundraiser will go directly to Meagan for any and all needs that she may have. <3 Please feel free to share this with anyone who you think would be interested in helping to support Meagan but please do not post this publicly as we would like to ensure that Meagan receives it in a respectful and thoughtful manner.
