FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A GoFundMe has been created after the unexpected passing of Meghan Brookes on Sunday for her 13-year-old son, and husband, who is currently battling cancer.

Brookes’ husband, Chris, was in remission from Hodgkin’s lymphoma and started chemotherapy again at the end of November after doctors found a lump.

“[He] has a long road ahead of him, now without his partner by his side, while raising his son alone,” read the GoFund Me page organized by Nicole Marshall.

Marshall describes Brookes as ” down-to-earth, genuine love, care and compassion could lift you up and make you feel a million times better.”

“Meghan was truly unlike anyone we have ever known, and we can’t imagine this world without her in it. Our hearts are shattered. She was such a bright light, and it’s unimaginable that she is not here with us now,” wrote Marshall.

“We understand it is a hard time for everyone right now, so even if you can’t donate, please feel it in your heart to share, Chris and Dylan have a long, hard road ahead of them, and in an already struggling time, anything will help. Thank you.”

Currently, $1,535, out of a $10,000 fundraising goal, has been raised for Chris and his son Dylan.
