I offer most sincere gratitude to my University of Hartford 'family' for the latest round of contributions I have been receiving. You exemplify the 'public purpose' side of this private university's mission of compassion and community. Also, to two special people who have each donated more than once now - you know who you are - I thank you and I love you. Thank you all for continuing to make such a positive difference in my life - in many different ways. <3 Terry
Thank you to my latest round of supporters for your kind donations! Your generosity, along with those who responded before you, continues to make a huge difference in alleviating some of my stress, especially at this time of year. I am grateful to all who have shown me their compassion and support, and to those who may help me moving forward to reach my goal. Every little bit helps and is very much appreciated. Hoping everyone had a blessed and happy holiday, and wishing all a peaceful, healthy and prosperous 2013! <3 Terry
Thank you to all who have helped me surpass 50% of my goal! To those acquaintances and supporters I haven't met yet, and those I do know that have been unable to pledge their support yet, I would most gratefully welcome any donation amount you are willing and able to offer. If anyone can perhaps organize a fundraiser of sorts to donate to, or share profits with me, that would be of extraordinary help to me, and hopefully not an excessive 'burden' on those kind individuals choosing to participate. THANK YOU, one and all, for all you've done and to those who will continue the effort! <3 Terry
I'd like to thank everyone who has so generously and selflessly donated their hard-earned money to bring a little sunshine into my life; I feel like I've been given a reprieve in my storm, however temporary it may be. Thanks to all of you, I have reached an impressive 43% of my goal! I may be pushing my luck, but it has been, and would certainly continue to be, helpful if you'd kindly keep sharing my page with anyone or group you think might be receptive to it. I continue to keep you all in my prayers and offer you my most heartfelt and sincere thanks. <3 Terry
I am currently at 41% of my goal...many thanks to all who had the resources and compassion to donate. I understand that perhaps some may wish to contribute, but just don't have the money to do so. You can still do so...by sharing my link. If you belong to an organization or group, or are employed by a company who will make a donation, organize a fundraiser or share my link via an email blast to their contact list or their Facebook list...this ripple effect can work wonders. Thnk you for any and all efforts...I will keep you posted!
"Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you." ~ Thank you.
I would like to take a moment to humbly thank so many of you who have stepped up to answer my request for assistance. In this world we find ourselves living in these days - wars, random and senseless shootings, bullying........ - the kindness, selflessness and generosity shown to me in just two days has been overwhelming. I have been supported and cared for by family, friends, acquaintances...and a few remarkable people I don't even know! I give you, and those who are kind enough to answer my prayers in the future, my most sincere thanks. Your thoughtfulness and support mean the world to me and my children...I will never forget. Thank you and God bess you.
I am uncomfortable and embarrassed having to ask for help now; I used to be the one offering it instead. Unfortunately, I've run out of options, and even this, I fear, will be only a 'band aide.' I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1994. Long story short, the disease has been getting noticeably worse since 2005, to the point I had to leave my job of 14 years which I loved on disability Oct. 31, 2011. I have not been able to return to work because of complications from a fall, and my employment was terminated July 31 2012. In June, I had to purchase a Sara 3000 lift to help me transfer from one chair to another, or to bed, or for personal hygiene, out of pocket ($4,428.) I have had a 24/7 caregiver, which is also out of pocket ($1,260 per week.) I have depleted my savings in the last two months, and have started tapping into my 401k, which will be gone in the next few months. I am getting $1,023 per month Social Security Disability. I've cut any possible expenses I can, but the numbers won't work. I could continue my life as it is if I didn't need the caregiver. Even if I had no other expenses at all, I can't afford to pay the more than $5,000 per month for the care I need. If I cannot contribute my share of living...rent, phone, food, etc., my son will have to sell his house, where I live, and I'll have little option than having to live in a nursing home where I won't have to pay for the care I need I'm trying to maintain some sense of normalcy in my life. I want to sty productive by volunteering my time with a veteran non-profit working from home making calls, coordinating activities, etc. I'm too young and mentally, emotionally and intellectually to be forced to live in an environment such as that...I will not thrive. Any contribution, no matter how small, would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you so much for your heartfelt compassion. It will never be forgotten; you'll be always in my prayers. Most sincerely, Terry
