CALL FOR HELP FOR SOMEONE WHO DESPERATELY NEEDS IT AND QUICKLY!!!

My mom's neighbor died a few days ago. His name was Adrian. His wife's name is Dora. They are from Romania, they are here on a work Visa, neither of them have family, and Dora speaks very broken English. They came to America looking for the American Dream but soon found there were no jobs, no insurance available to them, and they were living in a camper.

Adrian died suddenly. He had been sick but had no real diagnosis because they had no insurance, did not qualify for medical help from the State, and were penniless when he passed away. Apparently, he had Leukemia and Diabetes. Left untreated, it took his life. His last words to his wife were "Dora, Dora...I love you."

Dora has to get his body from the morgue at Mission Hospital in Asheville, NC, in no less than 3 days. Then, she has to transport his body to Memphis for burial. The total costs are going to be around $5,000.

It will cost $3,000 just to get his body released from the morgue to be embalmed. She cannot take him to Memphis for burial without having him embalmed and placed into a casket.

She will be driving his body in their van to Memphis for burial (she has an ex-brother-in-law there)...can you imagine? Not being able to even afford to have the body transported? They have no family in Romania, nothing. They are poor, they came here and worked any job they could find. Now they REALLY need our help. They are Greek Orthodox and do not believe in cremation. Burial is the only option.

My mother is taking donations to pay the funeral home to get the body from the hospital to have it embalmed...that will be $3,000 in just 3 days. Today is May 18th. They have until the 21st to pay this cost.

Dora wants to send thank you notes to EVERY PERSON who donates, whether it's a dollar or a thousand, so please include your name and address so she can thank you personally.

Please help this family. The couple was all each other had. Dora is alone, in a foreign country, and destitute. WE CAN HELP HER - WE HAVE TO, not just as Americans, but as human beings.

Thank you!!!

What a horrible thing to go through. Put yourself in this poor lady's shoes. Please reach out and help her. Thank you.
