The family and friends of Virginia LeCesne are uniting to raise money for the medical investigation of Mr. Norvin LeCense unexpected passing

From the bereaved widow~ "One year ago my life was devasted with the unexpected and untimely death of my husband Norvin LeCesne. On the night of January 5, 2011, I took my husband to the ER because he complained that he didn't feel well. Upon arrival and examination by the ER doctors it was reported that he had hypotension (low blood pressure) and that they wanted to keep him for observation. A short time later something went horribly wrong while he was under observation, my beloved husband of 27 years passed away right before my eyes!"

"The hospital informed me when a person dies within 24 hours of arriving to the ER that the medical examiner would automatically perform an autopsy to determin cause of death. However, what appeared to be minutes following my husband being pronounced dead, the hospital staff returned only to inform me that the decision was made that an autopsy would not be performed and the medical examiner had ruled my husband's death as "natural causes". This news was of such great shock, that I did not stop to think to demand that an autosy be performed especially since my husband was only diagnosed with hypotension less than an hour prior to his arrival to the ER. To date, I still have no answers as to what caused my husband's death. So in efforts to get answers and closure, I have decided to pursue having my husband's body exumed and a private autopsy performed to determine if there was some form of human error on the part of the hospital and/or his medical device.

The statue of limitation expires January 5, 2013, therefore time is of the essence if I wish to proceed with the medical investigation and legal proceedings. Therefore, I am asking for the generous donations of $25 from 1,000 friends & family to raise money for this costly process. The end of June is the time given to reach this goal and obtain a permit from the state to start exhumation. I will keep everyone posted on the process from start to finish."

With Sincere Gratitude,
Virginia LeCesne
