We are raising funds so that we can retrieve my aunt from the medical center in order to transport her body and have her cremated.

My aunt Christina Hutchens died in the ICU after being rushed into emergency surgery. She was diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus over two years ago and had since been unable to eat. She was surviving on boost and fluids, which her health was beginning to further decline and surgery was necessary. She died from septic shock which ultimately caused her heart to fail. She never thought this would happen and she was not prepared, as in there was no insurance and or funds to pay for the cremation. Not to mention we were responsible for cremating her husband just this past year, who also had no funds in place. We have been through all of the options we can possibly think of such as applying for a loan, payment plan, credit card, services offered by the state. We are in desperate need as there is only so much time allotted for pick up of a family member. We are running out of time before she is turned over to the state. We have a church who has donated their services but we cannot come up with the money in time. We have gotten a discount and we are hoping to raise $800 to cover the cremation and obituary. If you could offer anything it would be a blessing to us, even if it is only advice. We can't thank you enough for your support. God Bless. If you would like to mail a check you can mail it to 205 S. Arthur Drive, Thomasville, NC. Or to speak with a family representative contact Brittany Cox (Christina's Niece).
