Bettejean fund.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this passage to ask for everyone's help. As many of you know on august 16th Bettejean was taken to Chattanooga Tennessee hospital with awful stomach pains. This eventually turned into much more than we ever thought. After many tests, pokes, and more tests we got the awful news, our friend, wife, mother has AML (Acute myeloid leukemia). The morning of August 25th, just 9 days later Bettejean had experienced cardiac arrest. Her body had grown weak from the chemo and her heart just wasn't strong enough to endure the treatments. On August 27th, just 11 days after being admitted to the hospital, Bettejean went heaven to be with those we loved that passed before her. The pain and heartache are enough to turn our world upside down. On top of it the medical expenses, with out insurance, and the piling bills have become insurmountable.  We would also like to have services for our beloved angel. 

We feel awful to even fathom asking for help but we are in the most trying time of our lives. We need all the support you can provide. It will go further than just a monetary donation. It will help us to catch up on the things that are less important but also necessary. Creating less worry on us and allowing everyone to grieve in peace. Bettejean was a remarkable woman and has changed the lives of many people along the way. Each one of you have an amazing memory of her that will always be with you. Brother, sisters, husband, daughter, son, nieces, nephews and grandsons are all in need of support. Our hearts can barely handle the pain we feel but we know she is no longer suffering and will live eternally in God's loving arms. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider any support you may be able to provide. With love, Doug Merritt, Abbey Mehegan, Eli Gelo, and family....
