My name is Kayla Paine, I am starting this gofundme for Harold ‘Craig’ Moore who recently was diagnosed with cirrhosis from fatty liver disease, not alcoholism. He spent nearly a week in the hospital receiving treatment for esophageal varices (internal bleeding). Craig is now home with a long road ahead of him. It is unclear, as with any life threatening diagnosis, how much time Craig has, could be weeks, months, we are hoping for years! He is not able to even see a doctor to begin the process of being put on a transplant until 3 months from now, and who knows how long until he will receive an actual transplant. We are working as hard as we can at changing his lifestyle and controlling his diabetes to help him live a long, healthier life. There are times though where these efforts don’t matter, and the disease takes over anyways. Regardless of how this story ends good, or bad I want to help Craig and my mom relieve some stress and enjoy this life right now!
Craig is a father, grandfather, husband, and friend. He has been with my mother for nearly 10 years. My mom is disabled with fibromyalgia, but is doing the best she can to make ends meet working odd jobs. Craig as most of you may know is a truck driver, hauling loads of lumber. Lately, he has been doing the best he can and putting in as many hours as he can but is finding that he fatigued and tires quickly having to come home early from work from time to time. This unfortunately puts a major cut in paychecks.
Without them knowing, I am setting up this gofundme to see if I can help raise some money to get the caught up on the bills they are falling behind on, and to possibly help fulfill Craig’s dream of seeing Alaska. These two have been through the ringer these past few weeks, this fund raiser will hopefully be just about showing kindness to get these two through a temporary hard spot.
I remember when Craig pulled out his check book with no questions asked, writing me a $500 check to buy the books I needed to start nursing school. I can’t begin to explain how much of a relief that felt to me at that time. It’s those selfless acts that make this world go round, and with the help of others I’d love to give back much more!
