Economic Hardship.


Two days ago my good friend Cindy Bagienski Vieland lost her husband Dave after a long heroic battle to Cancer. Those of us who know her and Dave, know that they have struggled over the last 4 1/2 years to just get by to pay their bills, with all the additional costs that an illness incurs and with the unusual amount of hardships that they have had to endur.
After Dave's CA metastasized, he lost his job, health and life insurance and due to a technicality he was not eligible to receive unemployment/disability insurance. Then Cindy broke her leg, putting her out of work for 4 months. Once Cindy returned to work, Dave had to be hospitalized for 2 months. As if this all wasn't bad enough, with our recent cold spell their pipes burst causing extensive water damage to their home.
Many of her friends and co-workers have asked me how they can help. A friend of mine told me about Go Fund Me and I thought that it would be a great way for people that know and love her and Dave to offer their support.

Thank you in advance.
