We need help for Lonny

This is a note from Lonny's wife.  They would never ask for a penny, but I think we can help.  Even if you can send $5, every little bit will help Lonny on his journey to being healthy.    

Lonny has developed a very powerful and dangerous addiction. After seeking medical help from many sources and programs, it is clear to us that he needs to go to an inpatient rehabilitation program.

Unfortunately, this addiction has caused him to lose his ability to make logical decisions. It has taken our family from financial security to being completely underwater in debt and not even having enough money to buy gas without using credit. 

American Addiction Centers (through St. Luke's drug & alcohol treatment) has thoroughly assessed him and has offered to help him with their holistic treatment program. 

My health insurance is a high deductible health plan. This health plan will cover the program expense at 100% once our deductible is met. Unfortunately, our deductible is $3000. 

While we would never, ever ask for any money from anyone, we have come up with a plan to raise this money ASAP.

We may not have any money, but everyone knows I have LOTS of crap!! Since most people love to buy and sell crap, that's what I'm going to do! Getting to the point - here's what I'm asking of all of you. If you have any crap that you have been wanting to get rid of, sell, donate, etc. that we could sell for some money to go toward helping Lonny get better, please let me know! 

My goal is to get Lonny on the plane by Monday. The medical professionals we have been working with have expressed extreme concern that he could have serious health problems if he goes through withdrawals without being under close observation 24/7. And it needs to happen fast.

Secondly, I would like ask that each of you reach out to Lonny. This is a very, very difficult time, and he is very ashamed of what he has put his family through. He needs to know that each and every one of us LOVE him, CARE about him, and WANT HIM TO GET BETTER!!!! Please take a moment within the next couple of days to let him know you support him 100% in his upcoming journey.

We love and care for all of you so much. Thanks for taking a few moments to give him support.
