Consider Donating

Karen Anderson, the legend

Hello all. I'm Shawn McNamara, and this is my Aunt Karen (left). In March of 2018 she passed away extremely unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm. My world was shaken, along with everyone else in the family and all of her friends. Coming from out of nowhere, a brain aneurysm is a scary thing, and we still have so much work to do in order to figure out what makes the brain work, why things that happen do happen to it, and how to overcome them, aneurysms included. I would ask you to kindly donate to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation by clicking the link below, so that we can further research on this complex medical condition. I make it a personal point to donate through several items I put up on eBay because though it can't bring my Aunt Karen back, it could save someone else from going through the same awful experience. Karen was a very loving soul, a great daughter, living with her mom while she was too old to be left alone without the rest of the family being slightly concerned, she was a great sister, one who changed the lives of her siblings through her kindness, a great wife to a husband who misses her dearly and had to go through the terrible process of burying his lifetime friend, an amazing mother to two wonderful daughters who will forever be her sunshine even while she's our sunshine, an incredible friend known for her extraordinary listening skills, and so much more. We all miss you so much Mel, and everyday I hope that I can keep making you proud. Love forever and always <3
