It is with a very heavy heart that we ask for your prayers and support. My sister Judi passed away late Friday evening. She was just 59 years old. She was a Wife, Mother of 4 and Grandma of 6. Judi was selfless, loving, humble, genuine and fun.

Judi's health started to rapidly decline around four weeks ago. My nephew took her to the ER because Judi started to get very weak, had memory issues, was hallucinating and could hardly get out of bed. My nephew Sean would carry her from her bed to the couch. Sadly, it took multiple ER visits to get the attention they needed. On the fourth visit, she was admitted to the hospital and it was determined that she had a brain tumor that was pushing on her brain stem and it had to be removed. She had brain surgery on July 30th and things went south from there. With multiple other things being detected, she was never able to fully recover. Judi was always a very petite lady but when she was admitted, she was just 66 pounds.

Her husband, Mike, has MS. He is completely paralyzed from the waist down and overall is in poor health. Judi was Mike's primary caretaker. She left her career around 11 years ago to be Mike's primary caretaker - she never wanted him to go to a long term care facility. My niece and nephews are working with the social workers to determine next steps for Mike now that Judi isn't here to care for him.

Judi's ex-husband is also battling cancer in Milwaukee. So, my three nephews and niece have their plates running over. They do not have a parent that they can lean on to help them get through this right now. So, that is where Aunts and Uncles come in...we are trying to assist as much as possible.

Judi didn't have life insurance and just lived check to check since her savings was depleted after Mike had to leave his job and then she leaving her job to care for Mike. We are hoping to assist her children by fundraising enough money to cover the memorial & funeral service costs. At a tragic time like this, it is so sad that they have to worry about finances and how they are going to cover their Mother's funeral expenses.

Judi lives in CA . We are hoping to raise enough funds to help cover the cost of the cremation, flight of her remains back home to Milwaukee and then the burial/memorial service.

Anything you are able to give would be greatly appreciated. We'll have this fundraiser open until Saturday, August 31st.

Thank you and please keep Judi, Mike, her children and even her ex-husband in your prayers. xx With much love and appreciation...
