Those eyes and that bearded face you are looking at is our beloved Jim, otherwise known as "Moses." Jim and his wife need urgent help in the worse way. Those eyes have been seeing the face of Cancer for going on 4 years now. 2018 was not a year to remember for any of us as Jim had to have his left kidney removed and suffered a horrible time with an incision that left over 15 staples that had to be removed only after another visit. But the awfulness of 2018 did not stop there for us. With results coming in, Jim definitely had Cancer. In March of 2021, he was in the hospital for 21 days for surgery. This surgery was very telling in that it was a precursor to what someone who is going through Cancer treatments and fighting for their life feels, looks, and acts like. Jim, with his 6"2 body frame, was left to weigh no more than 134 pounds.. We thought we would be saying goodbye that morning. We were so fearful that Jim would not be there to see his grandson be born nor watch his youngest son become a husband for the first time. Jim though? Jim thought differently. Although Jim is home for the moment, he will not stop fighting and doing so with that gentle smile as in the pic above. See, Jim NEVER complains. Unfortunately, as most of us know, the fight does not and will not stop there. They now have the burden of mounting medical bills. Bills are coming in excess of $159,000.00, and that portion of 20% weighs very heavily on Jim AND his wife. As we all know, stress any time is never a good thing, but to have to be stressed not only about your Cancer and its effects on your body but also about finances, your family, and the rising costs of that deductible. IT IS SOOO VERY VERY MUCH a burden. PLEASE, can you donate to help with that 20%? ? Although many would agree there may be much higher bills and more of them, I am only requesting help to cover their 20% at this time. It would be wonderful to present a monetary gift of the 20% to Jim on your behalf so he may know the name of every person who took the time to read, donate and share their loving concern. I PROMISE that your donation will go towards the medical need of this family, and your donation and your name will be made known to Jim unless you want to donate anonymously. Come this October, this faithful husband, father, grandfather and beloved friend will be married for 40 years. Would this not be the most awesome Anniversary Gift? Not just the monetary, but the ability to not have $31,800.00 looming at you knowing you physically can do nothing to help pay for it nor stop it. For Jim to be able to breathe a sigh and see people he did not even know who stepped up to help not only Jim , but the ENTIRE family would be AWESOME. Please help me do this for our Jim. Jim will continue to fight this fight as he is determined not to give up to Cancer. Jim is unaware of this request to you, which would make it that much sweeter to present this PRE-Anniversary gift to Jim and his wife from ALL of us that Cared enough to let him know. :)
I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to read, hopefully, share to every person you can and if possible, donate. I would say even a dollar would be sufficient if everyone who stopped and read this page donated just a dollar, but I guess the minimum donation has to be five. Can you share with five friends, and you all can maybe donate a dollar? In this particular way, a dollar can still go a long way and will be happily accepted.

With the most sincere request and hope,
