The Story

Mayersville, MS

Maxine Smith (49) is a loving mother and grandmother. Her three young grandchildren, De’Coriah (5), Corneisha (4), and Corey (1) are her world. In her free time, Maxine enjoys spending time with her family and friends and going to church. Unfortunately, in August, Maxine got news that shattered her heart: her son, Patrick, had passed away.

On August 19, Patrick Smith (29) and Cassandra Green (25) were going out to celebrate their birthdays when the unthinkable happened. They were involved in a tragic car accident. Cassandra passed away on the scene of the accident and Patrick passed away nine days later from the severity of his injuries.

This devastating news changed Maxine, De’Coriah, Corneisha, and Corey’s lives forever. Maxine was almost ready to take a new job in another town, but will now remain in Mayersville to raise her three grandchildren who lost both of their parents. With this dramatic lifestyle change and Patrick’s outstanding medical bills, Maxine is in need of some assistance.

Maxine hopes to raise $1,000 through RedBasket.org to assist with Patrick’s unpaid medical bills. Patrick and Cassandra had no medical or life insurance, so raising these funds would not only make a tremendous impact in Maxine’s life, but also the lives of the three young children. “The family was planning to purchase life insurance, but had not yet done so,” said Maxine. By making a tax-deductible donation and sharing Maxine’s story, you can help offset the cost of Patrick’s medical bills.
