Llewellyn GoFundMe Campaign

   So... As if ALL those things you saw in this video above isn't bad enough... Let me give you an update...

Linda had a kidney removed due to renal cancer, and continues to face CANCER as her remaining kidney AND liver have now become compromised. She has also recently developed an ulcer, and doctors have warned her that she NEEDS to eliminate stress.  How can she do that, when on top of ALL of these other things... ONCE MORE, through no fault of their own, they have lost the home and the savings they had planned on using to retire.  When you're nearly 70 years old, and find yourself in these kind of destitute circumstances, there is NO WAY to start over with any hope of ever becoming financially stable without the help of generous people like you!
     
  My name is Lester Nielsen, and I really need YOUR help!  There's a wonderful family I know of, who needs our assistance. Lee and Linda Llewellyn are some of my best friends. Throughout their lives, they have given SO MUCH, to help others, and now they need OUR help!
     When they first got married, they had no idea that their lives would take so many crazy turns... they thought they'd live like any normal family... but that never happened.
     Linda and her son have Muscular Dystrophy. Linda didn't know she had this disease until her son Jeremy was diagnosed with it... and that's when the doctors told her SHE had it as well.
     Over the years, they've had multiple tragedies occur in their family. They've suffered the loss of infants, tragic accidents, having to live with muscular dystrophy, the loss of 3 homes due to medical bills, a son getting run over by a drunk driver, crushing his head, and barely surviving.
     Linda has had several near-death experiences that were narrowly averted, but each took it's toll on the family... especially on Lee.  (Can you imagine, as a provider, how HELPLESS you might feel, having all this happen to YOUR loved ones... and not be able to control any of it?!)
     But the most insidious of all these illnesses and tragedies is the one that Linda and Jeremy both are now facing... a second "terminal illness" known as Camurati-Englemann's disease.  A RARE bone disease that only 300 people in the ENTIRE WORLD have EVER been diagnosed with... and there is NO KNOWN CURE! 
     Eventually their bones will begin to twist, grow and mutate. Their joints will begin to fuse, (Their bones have already begun to do that) and their skull bones will begin to grow into themselves... gradually crushing their brains until they become deaf, blind and immobile. They are already feeling the effects of this as they live in constant pain!
     The doctors told Linda that stress is what tends to accelerate the effects of this disease. PLEASE HELP US help THEM to reduce that stress in their lives.
     These amazing people have worked hard their entire lives just to survive, but with these last setbacks, their future seems more uncertain than ever!
     This country is full of wonderful, caring, giving people... last year, in the United States alone, private individuals donated over 270 billion dollars to charity. I'm hoping many of these kind people will see their way to assist this extraordinary family in the twilight of their lives.
     They need to have a home to live in, that is handicap accessible. That's why we NEED to raise this money. And once we get enough money to pay for this home, they will still need money to assist with hospital bills into the future. This disease that Linda and Jeremy has will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat, or at least try to mitigate some of it's debilitating effects.
     It's very important to get help for this family as soon as we can... before the stress of life causes even more tragedy, suffering and sorrow for this amazing, wonderful family.
     Thank you so much for your understanding and your generosity. YOU are making a difference!
