The Story

Berenice was a seven year-old who battled Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.  She passed away on February 15, 2014.  Our intention is to raise money to assist her family with funeral and burial costs.

After her diagnosis last spring, Berenice and her family began the process of battling against an inoperable brain tumor.  Throughout that time, Berenice's mother, father, and three year-old brother were by her side. 

Berenice loved her school, horses, Barbie dolls, and her family and friends.  She was a blessing to all who knew her.  Her smile was contagious and her spirit and resilience were inspiring. 

As a community, we have surrounded her family with love and support throughout this tough time.  Please help her family by making a donation today.  All donations received are deposited into the Helping Bernice Fund account at the Bank of Delmarva.  As needed, checks will be written to the funeral home/cemetery/florist/etc.  If there are remaining funds they will be distributed to Bernice's family.  Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

If you would prefer to make a donation by cash or check please visit any Bank of Delmarva location and ask to make a deposit to the Helping Berenice Fund.  Checks can be mailed to the address below.  Please make checks payable to the Helping Berenice Fund.

Thank God for all the people he has sent our way.  I just ask that you pray much for my daughter, Berenice.  I believe he can lift her up.  He has the last word.  Jesus bless you all.
