BENEFITING: Ulman Fund, Inc.
Samantha was one of those people. She lost her battle with Hodgkin lymphoma last week at the age of 29, and this project is a way to honor the life and love of a strong young woman who touched our lives.
Throughout her battle with Hodgkin lymphoma, even as her own health declined, Samantha’s first concern was always for her younger sister Ashley. Samantha had raised Ashley, as well as her two brothers, since their mother died in a car accident when Samantha was 18 and Ashley was 3.
Ashley, who will turn 16 this week, wants to memorialize the sister who raised her by laying her ashes to rest next to their mother’s grave. Medical bills have already created an enormous financial challenge for this family; without your help, even the most modest memorial service and burial for Samantha are not possible financially.
The Ulman Cancer Fund helps families who are burdened by the mountain of costs associated with cancer, but we can’t do this alone. Our goal is to raise $2,000 for a service that will honor Samantha’s life and provide closure for Ashley.
Every dollar counts. Your donation is greatly appreciated by Ashley, her family and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
Thank you for keeping Samantha’s memory alive and supporting her sister Ashley, who was the love of Samantha’s life.
