Family members say Sylvia Martinez had severe brain injuries along with numerous broken ribs and bones.

“Unfortunately the injuries were so severe we had to make the hardest decision to let her go. Those that knew her know she was living her Blessed life building her ministry. She dedicated her life to helping care for others. Even in death she chose to continue helping others as an organ donor,” said a family member on their GoFundMe page.

They’re asking for donations to help with the cost of Sylvia’s funeral.
