The Badra family needs to fulfill Rachal's final wish to have her ashes returned to Rome, the place she felt her spirit most in life.

Rachal Badra passed away at the age of 28. She died suddenly from heart failure. Rachal donated her kidneys to help save the lives of others.

Rachal spent a semester abroad in Italy. She felt instantly in love with Rome and instantly felt that she was home. Italy was, to Rachal, the representation of what she was most passionate about; rich, colorful history, freedom of spirit, sensuality in all things, art being a daily part of life, and, of course, gelato.

Rachal, luckily, gave us a path to follow for her final wishes. She wished to have her ashes mixed with the water of the Tiber River.

The Badra family wants to travel together to fulfill this wish which requires a costly trip to Rome. If you would like to contribute to Rachal's final wish please know that it would be greatly appreciated.
We are hoping to be in Rome on May 11, 2013, Rachal's 30th birthday. Your gift will help ensure that this difficult journey is a smooth one.
