Help Hoffman Family Through This Challenging Time

Life throws us all unexpected challenges but the thought of losing  a family member, loved one and especially a parent is a part of life we all dread.   I have coached Natiya Hoffman for over two years now and have gotten to know her wonderful family by all the time we spend together at the pool and at swim meets.  Gaylene has stepped up over and over to volunteer help and assistance in any way she can and Ken has volunteered his time as an official at swim meets for years.   (I can still picture him disqualifying my son in his white hat;)
It wasn't much more then 2 weeks ago I spoke with Ken as he was dropping Natiya off at practice and his life and his families lives have changed drastically since then.  Ken has been diagnosed with a quickly  progressive form of cancer on his lung lymph nodes and brain tumor which has now caused paralysis to his left side and is unable to walk.  He recently checked out of the hospital and is now home heading into hospice care.  
As this family has done so much for our swim community I am asking the swim community and friends to offer assistance to their family.  Natiya brings so many smiles to the FORT family everyday and I want nothing more then to help relieve even a little stress from their family to ensure we continue seeing that smile.  Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated and I know Ken will appreciate knowing the support his family has.

Thank You!
