Due to the real estate market falling apart back when we were trying to move them in with us - neither of our homes have sold. So, in addition to our current mortgage we are still paying mortgages, etc. on the other two homes. So these badly needed renovations just are not in our reach right now. I so want to make it happen now instead of later when it may be too late to make a better quality life for him.
He could use a new powerchair also, as well as a cross-t bar over his hospital bed to help him lift himself up farther in the bed. In addition there are a number of care giving supplies we are constantly in need of - but don't qualify for assistance in receiving since he does get a pension - even though the majority of it goes to pay for his medical insurance and medications.
So, know that any and ALL monies collected with go directly to Dale's care and well being, and most of all to provide him a better quality life. Giving him some freedom to move about before the diseases take that away from him. I know the funds above seem like a lot. But they are the estimate given by the architect to make it happen. And I thought with all the fire fighters in the United States - if any of his fire fighter brothers wanted to help -- even a $ 1.00 from a fraction of them would help us hit our goal. Can you help Dale get a better quality life for the time he has left on this earth?
Thanks, Cindy (Precord) Ranshaw, Dale's daughter
I modified amount today 1-26-2013. So many told me to put the told wish amount. For doing everything we would like to accomplish -- but the gutted out and reconfigured bathroom is essential. So that is where I have placed it. If we raise more -- we'll do the added items also. If not then - isn't not ment to be. Thanks you for reading. Wishing you a great day!
