Nancy's A.L.S.

Nancy's has been Diagnosed w/ A.L.S./Lou Gehrig's Disease & in now on Non-Paid Medical Leave & we've now No Income & can't make Rent, Util Bills, Storage & Co-Pay Payments. Please Share & Donate!!!!!

Just a $5.00 donation from 2/3's of the people we know would get us there & back on the road. Nancy's had her 8th T.I.A. in April. I need to be able to work so Nancy can take time off from work so the Dr.'s may diagnose the reason for this many T.I.A.'s. 

Nancy & I have been raised to be self reliant, so we've been Loathe to ask for help. But, we've reached the end of our rope. If you're uncomfortable w/ donating here, Nancy has a Pay Pal account you may use, dragonschild at hotmail dot com, thank'ee.

The problems have been escalating for over two years now & that's how long I've been unable to land any decent paying gigs. We lost our house due to a desreputable Lender & we had to Rent more Storage Space, which Tripled our Storage Bill. 

All of our vehicles have broken down due to Transmission & Engine problems. Then, along with Nancy's escalating Medical Bills, She has had 3 Ischemic Strokes in Feb, an Additional 3 more in March & now 2 T.I.A.'s in April. We've not been able to get any of them repaired, lest we forego paying our regular monthly Rent, Utilities & Bills.

The best candidate to get back on the road is our '72 Ford Runabout, with her 2000cc engine, that gets 29-35 MPG. The timing belt broke jumping time, bending valves & push-rods, damaging the head & the pistons. So repair, rebuild or replace, depending on what they find. My '58 Mercury M-100 1/2 Ton Truck has engine & trans issues & only gets 9-15 MPG.

Without any running vehicles, Nancy has to take two, 2 & 1/2 hour Bus & Train rides to get to work & back for her monthly rotating shifts at JPL. Sometimes they run late or not at all.
Friends & family are burning out rapidly with our requests for scheduled or last minute rides. Getting her to her Dr.'s appointments is another kind of fun.

I'm unable to go to Auditions, attend meetings w/ Directors for landing Stunt Coordinator or Fight Choreography gigs, Train and Exercise horses to earn a paycheque. Me not being able to drive to gigs has put a major strain on our available income. Even to continue to Train in my Craft, Shoot my own Productions or go on Call Outs as a Volunteer L.A.F.D.-CERT E.F.R. Medic.
Two hour & longer Bus and Train rides apply to me as well to get anywhere.

We appreciate y'all & every little bit helps, Thank'ee!
