Dominique Bigler Family Seeks Help With Funeral Expenses

On August 4, the THON community lost Four Diamonds child Dominique Bigler as she ended her long battle with Synovial Sarcoma. Now, in the wake of the heartbreaking loss, the Bigler family is reaching out to ask for help in the planning of her funeral. They recently set up a website asking for donations to fund funeral expenses.

On their page, created by mother Marsha Bigler, the Biglers explain that Dominique did not have life insurance. “We never wanted to give up on her and never did,” they wrote.

Now, without insurance, they hope to raise $4,000 to cover funeral costs. In just three days, the Biglers have made it halfway to their goal. Any donation, even just pocket change, is encouraged.

As Dominique’s mother explained, “I promised her I would continue her legacy of helping others. First, I need to take care of her funeral expenses.”

Donations are accepted through the family’s gofundme webpage. Those who cannot donate are encourage to share the link.

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is arguably the greatest weekend here at Penn State–costume parties and candy, what could be better? Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive. If you want to do Halloween properly, you have to have at least three clever costumes, because repeating is lame, and not dressing up is even lamer. Pre-made Halloween costumes happen to be incredibly expensive, and pretty much super boring. So, your options are pretty limited. Your best bet is scouring thrift shops and your own closet to DIY your own perfect costumes. Here are a few options that we came up with.
