Fundraiser Launched for Single Mother Killed By COVID-19 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
The co-owner of Tuscaloosa's most popular chain of Mexican restaurants has started a fundraiser to help the grieving family of one of his employees.
Single mother Brandee Stripling died this week after battling COVID-19. Stripling was admitted to DCH Regional Hospital in late August with severe pneumonia, and after a week in the hospital suffered cardiac arrest.
Stripling left behind three children ages 13, 15, and 20 who are struggling to pay for funeral expenses and medical bills.
Justin Grimball, co-owner of Jalapeno's Mexican Grill, launched a GoFundMe to assist the Stripling family in their time of need. Donations may be made HERE.
