Losing a child is something that no mother should live with, especially for this mother from Pennsylvania. She contacted WUAH after the tragic loss of her 20-year-old son's death. He was in a motorcycle accident that took his life. This PA mother was in search of some help to help pay for the funeral and his stone. With having no financial support from her ex-husband who did not offer to help pay, and also the fact that he has been behind on child support. In desperate times to pay for the funeral, this mother has been late on a couple months of bills and was in danger of losing her house. With two younger children at home, she decided to contact WUAH in search of any donations to help her pay for her son's funeral. After reading her wish, the WUAH Foundation received an anonymous donation for $100 to be put towards the funeral. Although this did not pay for the full funeral and headstone, it was a good start and a helping donation for the mother in a time of sorrow.
