My sister Kristina Joy Smith died in Miami, Florida on Jan 6th 2015. She was 37 years old.
She was living in Marathon, Florida (located in the Florida Keys) where her boyfriend took her to the Fisherman’s hospital when she was complaining of leg pain. They airlifted her to Kendal Regional hospital on Dec 12th 2014 where it was determined she had Septic Shock.
My mom and I had made two trips to Miami during this time. It was pretty clear when we saw her that she was not going to survive. They had her on medications for the infection and her blood pressure, but she was not responding well to either one. Her hands and feet started to turn black due to the lack of circulation and her organs were failing.
It’s obviously been a difficult time for us and we are asking for help covering expenses. If your interested you can visit a donation page “Help pay for Kristina Smith’s funeral expenses“.
