Colfax Couple Losing all in Battle


My sister, Vicki Wheatcraft, and her husband, Donald Wheatcraft desperately need your financial assistance at this stage of their lives. During the past 18 months, Donald, age 66, has required countless costly chemotherapy and radiation treatments. He has also endured many trips to the E.R. and has required several lengthy and costly hospital stays.
Unfortunately his insurance, as well as Medicare and VA benefits have declined to cover a significant portion of the still-incoming medical expenses. Vicki is making required ongoing medical payments, but continues to fall further and further behind as the bills accumulate. A collection company recently began garnishing the couples' retirement income checks by 50%, so this leaves little or nothing for food or other necessities. Donald and Vicki have both worked hard all their adult lives, as long as they could, and Donald Wheatcraft is a former UNITED STATES MARINE.
As if the bills were not enough, Donald is losing his battle with cancer, and was admitted to hospice on June 20 (Iowa Mercy Hospice in Johnston.) Donald does not have any life insurance.
So here I am, asking for donations to help offset the many thousands of dollars of medical costs that are coming in each month, as well as the soon-to-occur funeral expenses for my sister's husband.
Please give any donation that you can. All funds will go directly to Vicki. Thank you sincerely, from the bottom of my heart.

Michele (a very concerned sister.)
