Marty is on the move !!!

Dear FOMs [Friends of Marty]

Marty would feel very uncomfortable listing this but it needs to be done so I thought I'd do it!

Some of you know that Marty's landlord has raised his rent significantly and it has become impossible for him to stay where he is. He's looked at a variety of alternatives including through the Cambridge Housing Commission's apartment list [but his name isn't likely to come up on that list for years]. He has, however, found a place that's not too far from where he is now that he thinks could work for him "“ but it means having to move within the next few weeks. This being at a particularly difficult time financially, coupled with the reality that he should not be doing any heavy lifting, etc brings us here and means raising as much as $3,500 "up front" to make the move possible. That includes paying people to both pack & move, renting trucks and paying overlapping rents to his present landlord and the up front months of rent to the new one.

This whole situation is problematic for Marty and I know he hates this whole process but, I any help you can give him I know will be more than appreciated.

Thanks, Donna
