Epilepsy: Help this family come home!

The mother of a family of 6, including 4 children has developed an acute case of geralized epilepsy and needs to be back around around friends and their Family Support System whom are in Washington State. This mother also has a rare genetic disorder called Nail Patella Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, PTSD, Disassociative Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder. Currently they live in Nebraska with very little help or support. Her safety and the safety of their children is paramount, so it is imperative for them to get home. She has had seizures while home alone and injured herself, nobody can check on her throughout the day. Her children are in school and not of an age to help their mother in these situations. Currently she is home alone while the husband is working. Any little bit helps, let's get this family home and safe! It may seem like a lot of money, maybe too much for people to understand, so I'll explain a little. For this family of 6, they need to rent a U-Haul that is 2 hours away due to the remoteness of their home, and bring it 2 hours back home (fuel). Insurance will need to be paid on the truck, and they will need 2 car haulers. A friend will be driving one pickup while the husband will be driving the U-Haul. They are moving from Chambers, NE (North Central Nebraska) to Washougal, WA (South West Washington ) with their entire family and all of their belongings. Fuel will be the largest cost, as neither the U-Haul nor the Pickup truck get any sort of good fuel economy. They will need 2 possibly 3 nights in a motel (there must be 2 rooms as for state laws only allowing so many people in one room) and food to eat along the way, and snacks for the children. They will be driving these trucks over the Rocky Mountains as well as the Cascade mountains, which will of course lower the fuel economy even further. It is very expensive as well as difficult to move a familyof 6 and all of their belongings halfway across the country (approximately 1300 miles.) Please do not feel obligated in any way to contribute or can contribute just a little bit, ever dollar adds up. Give only as you so feel led. If you would please share this, I know this family would appreciate it very much! Not one dollar of these funds will be used for anything other than moving costs. Please educate yourself on Epilepsy and Grand Mal seizures and help end the misunderstandings out there about it.
