Thank you for reading

My name is Nancy and my niece’s name is Deanna , this fundraiser is for my niece to help heal her heart. I am asking for donations to help heal a broken heart, my brother Louie passed away just two months before hurricane sandy ( was only 41 ) , hit our home we had 5 feet of water in our home where my brother his daughter and myself lived. I been his caregiver for over 20 years we were very close. Not only did we loose my brother and Deanna ( 14 years old ) her dad , her best friend ; she also lost her home , all the cards , pictures and gifts her dad gave her over the years even his bed that his daughter would sleep on just to smell his scent. It hurt me so much to have to throw away the bed do to the mold from the water , knowing how much she needed to keep it for a bit more. Her dad and her were very close even though he was very sick he never let her down he tried to do all the things a parent would do. He never missed any school event she ever had. He took her to the park for picnics , bowling and the aquarium , even dressed up and went trick-or-treating with her and their favorite thing they did together was going fishing. Anything she wanted to do he did with her despite the pain he was in. Even though he was in a wheelchair and couldn’t walk and on dialysis 5 days a week he never let her feel the pain he was in. Even on his last day before he pasted he ordered a pizza from his hospital bed and spent the whole night with his daughter watching SpongeBob keeping her safe and happy until the very last minute , he passed the (next morning at 9:01 am). He asked me to promise him to take care of his daughter for him and keep her safe and happy , with her beautiful smile she has. I felt like I let him down when hurricane sandy hit , we lost everything. We could not save anything we are still not able to move back in our home . Do to the lack of funds to finish fixing the home , there is still a lot of work to be done to make the home livable . We do not even have a kitchen I think my brother knew he was going to pass but he never let his daughter feel any of his pain or fear , I now have guardianship of her and hope I will be able to do the same for her. He was a very happy and funny guy , and was loved dearly. He made the most of everyday despite the suffering he was in. My niece is doing her best to cope with all of this and is doing ok and her grades in school are better than they had ever been (like her dad wanted) and even spending time with her friends but … I hear her crying at night . Deanna and I have not even be able to morn properly over his passing as of yet . I am hoping for donations so I can fix our home and to buy furnishings and most of all a new bedroom set for Deanna so she can rest her head and help to start to heal her heart.

Need raise $ 23,000 thousand dollars , please donate whatever you can .
They say there are good people out there , please be one of them.

P.S. He also left me his 2 dogs , 3 hamsters , 4 snakes and a cat ; You can tell he was an animal lover as well.

Thank You ,
