Debbie’s burial postponed to Saturday, April 30,2016


Deborah Osarere Idiagbonya, 31, who died after battling cancer for about five years on Friday, April 1, will no longer be buried on Saturday , April 16, 2016.
The strong hearted lady who passed on at The Howard University Teaching Hospital, Washington DC, USA where she was receiving treatment for lung and skull cancer will now be buried on Friday, April 30, 2016.

The announcement was made on the gofundme page that was created to help raise funds to give Debbie a befitting burial. The burial was postponed due to insufficient funds as the funeral and cemetery charges cost about $30,000 and they have not been able to raise a lot of money.

The viewing of the body will take place at J.B Jenkins Funeral Homes 7474 Landover road, Landover, Maryland, USA. 20785 between 9:30am and 10.30am.

The funeral service will commence immediately between 10:30am and 11:30am before her body will be taken to Glenwood Cemetery at 2219 Lincoln Road, North East, Washington DC, USA, 20002, to be buried.

Debbie is survived by her mother and two older sisters (she is the last of the three children her mother bore).  She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and was able to travel to America for surgery and treatments. She became well, till she was then diagnosed with bone cancer in April 2015 which also received treatment for and survived until she was down with lung and skull cancer again in December 2015 which she was receiving treatment for at the time of her death.
