Renee's home care
Hello friends, Renee was diagnosed with ALS in December of 2012 this horrible disease has progressed quickly as she now needs a home health aide while Jim is at work.
Jim has taken a new job that is very accomodating in allowing him to care for Renee"s needs and provides excellent benefits. Unfortunately the cost of home health care takes nearly 70% of Jim's net pay.
The cruel irony of his situation is that if we were to abandon Renee to a nursing home, insurance would cover 100% of the cost.
We need help to be able to afford the changes this disease has brought and continues to bring into our lives, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, The Lamb family.
This will not however stop us from having a fun birthday weekend with our friends and family. It goes with out saying that ALS sucks, but the love and support of family and friends is stronger
Hi Renee, My mom has ALS also. She lives in Nelson but, is moving to N. Carolina(the opposite of your journey). Do you have an interest in becoming a pen pal(e-mail) with her?
I wish I could do more for you guys, but I can't and did a little every month. I just understand how hard it is, cancer partially crippled me so I am on disability now. I also totally get how hard it is for her to lose mobility, how cash just goes when your sick and I know how hard it is for caretakers as my wife does many things I just can't do anymore. God bless, hang in there and believe even when you are unfairly tested.
