January 10, 2016 Livermore, California Police and Fire Departments responded to a motel where a 39 year old woman and her 6 year old daughter had just moved to from Florida. They had no other family in the area. The mother had a per-existing condition and collapsed on Christmas day of 2015. The mother was transported to a local hospital where she passed away, the 6 year old had not celebrated Christmas because of the incident. Local emergency responders took up the cause through a go fund me account to help the child celebrate Christmas and return the mother and child home to Florida. This is what was posted:
We need your help!!
The Livermore Police Department, The Livermore Police Officer’s Association, and The Livermore Pleasanton Fire Department are asking for the community’s assistance. On Christmas afternoon, LPD Officers and LPFD firefighters responded to a local hotel in response to a non-responsive 39 year old female. The 39 year old female was suffering a medical emergency related to a pre-existing condition. The 39 year old female was immediately transported to a local hospital for treatment where she ultimately succumbed to her medical condition.
The 39 year old female recently relocated to California from Florida with her 6 year old daughter. The little girl was placed with a foster family until her family could respond to California from Florida. During this time, LPD Officers and LPFD Firefighters learned the little girl was unable to celebrate Christmas at all due to her mother’s medical condition beginning in the early morning hours of Christmas morning.
As a result of this discovery, LPD Personnel and LPFD Personnel went to work and purchased Christmas gifts for the little girl so she could experience Christmas on this tragic day. On December 26, 2015, LPD Personnel along with LPFD Personnel delivered the Christmas gifts to little girl.
This incident touched the heart’s of LPD Personnel and LPFD Personnel. To assist the little girl and her family, LPD, LPOA, and LPFD started a “GoFundMe” account to raise money for funeral expenses and transportation expenses to get the little girl’s mother back to Florida.
LPD, LPOA, and LPFD are asking for the community’s assistance to raise money for the little girl. If you would like to donate money to the “GoFundMe” account please click on the following link.
