The Story

Demario Bailey, a standout tenth grade scholar at Johnson College Prep was was taken from his family and friends too soon.He has an identical twin, Demacio, who plays Varsity Basketball. Demariowas his biggest fan, accompanying his brother to practices and games regularly. In addition to mourning this loss, he will also be forced to live with the horrible memory of watching his brother be murdered in front of him. Something needs to be done to keep our children safe on the streets of Chicago. Demario did not deserve to die three days from his sixteenth birthday. Please give what you can to support the family as they endure this unforseen financial burden.
