Galyn’s family announced her passing on her Go Fund Me page, where they revealed she was diagnosed with ‘cancer throughout her entire body and lungs’.
A message on the fund-raising page states: “Galyn Gorg was and is huge part of our family, she means so much to every one of us.
“She was diagnosed with cancer throughout her entire body and lungs.
“The doctors claimed she only had days maybe a week to live, and after remaining optimistic and praying for a miracle, she has sadly passed.”
“We were unaware of just how sick she was as the diagnosis was a shock to the entire family.
“We hastily bought tickets to Oahu without a second thought, as she was getting treatment there,” it continued.“
Since spending a great deal of time and money, we are now looking for donations for funeral services.
“Any donation is greatly appreciated, even prayers! If possible please share, we want to send her off beautifully as her heart and spirit were filled with generosity, love, kindness, forgiveness, and compassion.”
