I am so sorry that Malaria stole your Mother from you....She was definitely way too young to loose her life...Because of so many losses like that of your Mother, Melinda has really wanted to be a part of the solution towards eradicating malaria, and we backups are all behind her on that. I am so glad that you found us here, and hope you will keep posting, and let people know how important this cause is to you and your country.
How long have you lived in the US? If you feel comfortable in telling us more about yourself, I'm sure we would all be very interested. We are a very loving bunch of people who come here to support each other, to support Melinda, and to support Malaria No More. I hope you will make yourself at home here, and come back often.
Again, my sincerere condolenses for the loss of your Mother.
