Help Bethany and the boys build a new life.

Late last year after suffering in silence for years, my best friend Bethany left her abusive (now) ex-husband with her two boys Renn and Eli.

They went from a family of 4, with a good income (enough to keep Bethany at home), to a family of 3, with no income, no education to gain an income, and so much debt. 

On top of that, there are severe medical needs. Bethany is a Type 1 Diabetic, Renn has Epilepsy, and Eli has ADHD. All of which require daily medications.

Often times when we see friends and family going through a tough time, we feel powerless to help. After watching Bethany and her boys scrape by these past few months, I knew I had to act.

This is your chance to help. Debt, medical expenses and car troubles have made it nearly impossible to afford even the most basic of necessities. Clothes and shoes for two growing boys, hygiene products, food, gas etc.

Rebuilding a life is a marathon, not a sprint. The money raised from this campaign will go toward the basics needed to get through each day as well as laying a foundation to grow and thrive in their new life.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
