A North Carolina family is still in mourning, grieving the loss of its wife and mother, who died suddenly after suffering a brain aneurysm disguised as a migraine.
Lee Broadway, 41, died just before her 42nd birthday on April 3 at a Charlotte hospital, leaving behind four children and a husband.
Eric Broadway said his wife had a history of migraines, but he said this one was different and that she was in tremendous pain.
He rushed her to the hospital and said doctors thought they had successfully operated on her, according to People.com, but she died two days later.
“We’re still in shock,” Broadway told People.
“Especially for the kids. They’re all grieving in their own ways.”
Lee Broadway and Eric Broadway had been friends since middle school and fell in love in high school. Their four children range in age from 22 to 8 years old.
The family has a GoFundMe page to help raise money for the costs associated with Lee Broadway’s medical treatment and care.
