DUMONT, N.J. – The family of a Dumont mother who died while delivering twin girls last week has donated her organs to help others.

“Julia’s selflessness continued after her death. The final gift was her organ donation,” Julia Roman’s sister-in-law, Lucelenia Pimentel, wrote on a GoFundMe page created to raise funds for Julia’s family.

The page had garnered more than $40,000 in donations by Tuesday afternoon.

Roman died of an amniotic fluid embolism at HUMC at Pascack Valley, leaving her husband Victor to care for their 5-year-old-daughter Victoria and newborn twins Isabella and Grace. Roman is also survived by two older children, Dwayne, 19, and Valeria, 26.
