Three years ago, my daughter came into this world, a beacon of light, beautiful and shining bright...born in Toronto, Canada to Ugandan parents.
To all those who knew her, she was full of life, had lots of love to give and even more laughter to share.
Sunday March 7th, 2021 may have been sunny for most, but for me it's the day my baby breathed her last, left this World and moved onto the next. She woke up playful as usual, had breakfast and played with a friend. She quickly grew weak, vomiting...and by the time I rushed to get to her, she was barely breathing, and looking ashen. I called 911 who never came to my aid for whatever reason, and after 25-30mins of a hopeless wait, my friend drove us to hospital as quick as traffic lights would allow. The doctors ran numerous tests and couldn't find out what was killing her. After multiple resuscitation attempts by the doctors, Bernice was taken off life support.
Without falling sick, warning or a sign, my baby died, just like that. I wish to lay her to rest back home in Uganda, where our heritage is, and where she would be at peace. I humbly call upon your assistance and request that you may help me fulfill this wish. There are so many questions and so few answers, this may not fix what's forever broken inside of me, but it will be a start for me to get closure, until I can find out what happened to my baby.
I thank you, and Bernice too from above.
