Our dear friend Bill Lally needs our help.   He has been diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma and is at home receiving hospice care.  

As you can imagine his medical expenses are very high now that he needs around the clock care.  While Bill receives social security once the rent is paid there is very little left over to help with these unforeseen expenses and Medicare covers very little of it. 

A bit about me...I am a longtime friend of Bill's.   We worked together for many years at KFI and have kept in touch along the way.  Along with Bill's very dear friend and power of attorney, Brian Blackmore, we are raising money to provide caregiving for Bill at his home.   Brian is withdrawing the money from the account, placing it in a bank account and that  money will be spent on caregiving services (approx. $25/hour) and bills.  We have hired several caregivers and are currently adding additional hours to help Bill.  Any extra money we raise that is not needed for caregiving will be used for burial expenses.

Anything you can do would be tremendously appreciated.  

Thank you!

Brian Blackmore and I wanted to share this picture of Bill's headstone. He was interred in Wrentham, MA, per his wishes, and his dates were recently engraved on the family headstone. This is our final post and both Brian and I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, love and humanity through this process. We are grateful to all of you and we know Bill was as well. I know we all miss Bill but I hope you can take comfort in knowing he felt the love of his dear friends who were there for him when he needed them most.

William Crawford Lally II died today at 1:16pm. He went peacefully, in his home, with Brian Blackmore, Lawanda and Carolinda at his side.
He was loved by so many dear friends and he knew that. When I said goodbye to him yesterday I read him every single one of the names that had been on this page and helped him in the last leg of his journey.
Thank you for all the love and support.

This is Lawanda and she has been a true blessing. She has taken such loving care of Bill and he adores her. Lawanda has been there since the very first day he went home and she is with him right now. So grateful to have met this amazing woman and to know she’s watching over our friend.

Carolinda spent the night on the couch next to Bill last night. She held his hand all night long. She is so loving and kind.
