Barry Oursler  ELGIN, IL

In February 2013, I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. The treatments and prescriptions are not covered 100% by insurance, so the bills are piling up. Last July, Donna was diagnosed with kidney failure. As a result, she must receive dialysis 3 times per week. Her prescriptions are very expensive. To make matters worse, it is costing us $350 per month for transportation to and from dialysis. Because of where our house is situated, she cannot use the discounted pickup services that are offered in our area. She must take a cab both ways.
We have been married almost 40 years and I would like to keep us both around for awhile longer.
Any donation will be appreciated, no matter how large or small.

Yesterday, August 19th, my wife of almost 41 years passed away. I want to tell everyone who helped in the past and who are helping now THANK YOU. Everyone of you has touched our lives in some way. We really appreciate all of the help we have been given by our family, friends and the pinball community.
I am really going to miss my best friend and the love of my life.
Thank you,
Barry

We are getting close to our goal thanks to all of the great people out there. Thank you to all of my old friends and to all of the total strangers, who I now consider to be friends. We couldn't do it without you.
Thank you all,
Barry & Donna
