Cameron and Zachary's Next Chapter

After a long and immensely difficult battle with ALS Cameron and Zachary's Father peacefully and on his "own terms" left us on September 28th. We know he is reunited with his wife who battled her own disease and died gracefully in 2014.  Although, thankful that Jon and AnnMarie's suffering have ended their journeys were incredibly painful for the both of them and for their two amazing sons, Cameron and Zachary. It has not only taken an emotional toll on them but a financial one as well. 

Cameron and Zachary helped in fighting the battle's their parents fought every single day, from the time the sun came up until it went down. Day in and day out.  Never ever once,  did I hear them say "why us".  Instead they joined together as a TEAM and bathed, fed, dressed, medicated, loved, hugged, slept with, lifted, lowered, cried, laughed and elevated spirits on very dark days. They did all of this while working full time. Never ever once, did I hear them say "why us".

They are two remarkable young men who have enormous amounts of compassion....the word "compassion" literally means “to suffer with".

It is now time for Cameron and Zachary to start the next Chapter of their lives. Often times we hear about people fighting battles that we ourselves could never imagine and we are more than willing to stop everything at that moment and help. The boys did this for their parents no questions asked. However;  when these brave people leave us they often times leave behind loved ones who then must go on with life without them. 

This campaign was created to ask for help in the effort to ease Cameron and Zachary's burdens in the only way I know how ...."in the spirit of others".   

With much gratitude and humility thank you to all that wish to help.

In full transparency to our generous donators, I am Cameron and Zachary's Aunt. The funds are being used to pay off debt the boys incurred while my brother their Dad was battling ALS.  Also, they will be using the funds for burial arrangements. 

These donations will be going directly to Cameron and Zachary.
