Artist seeking help to move East

To all our friends and collectors. Tony, my partner and my best friend of 43 years is losing his battle with advanced Lung Cancer. He has fought the good fight but now he is in his last days and will soon pass in a few days. The bank is foreclosing on our home  this month and I will be evicted so I need to move myself and our two dogs cross country from Ruidoso, New Mexico to Jacksonville, North Carolina.  As everyone knows, I am an artist and have to relocate my studio, kiln, and lots of my supplies to the East Coast. Because of our emergency medical situation, I am finding myself turning to my friends, near and far. Its a lot of "stuff" to pack and move. So I need to raise enough money to get me there and set up my new studio so I can continue to support myself and make great art! My needs are not great but I haven't been able to do my usual shows since Tony got sick last year. Our income has been solely dependant on Social Security which isn't very much. My wish is to move closer to my family and resetablish my little art business. Simple needs: I need gas and travel money and  will need to rent a U Haul truck in order to get relocated. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all in advance!
