A message from the family of BJ:
Family and Friends,
It is with great regret that we come to you today asking for your support. On October 2nd, the unimaginable happened. Our sister Dina Abdul Kareem lost her only son, BJ. While she is already struggling with trying to cope with the lost of her first born, at the tender age of 13, she is also battling with trying to find a way to bring her baby back home to Washington, DC. The cost to bring him back home from Missouri alone is well over $11, 000. This cost does not include any burial. While no mother should ever have to endure this pain, Dina also has to figure out financial expenses. This plea for support will aid in the burial and travel cost for BJ and the family. Any support is greatly appreciated!
