Love for the Donaldson's

The Donaldson's are my second family, and  right now Linda and Jim are both sick (the parents). Linda was dignosed with esophageal cancer a few months ago. It has gotten progressively worse. Today they found out news that no one EVER wants to hear, the cancer has spread throughout her body, and she is now in Stage 4. This past week, Jim had a heart attack, and as I write this, he is having quadruple bypass surgery. They are both going to be out of work for only God knows how long. They lost their son not even a year ago, and they have two twin daughters (Lizzy and Jamie) that are now going to have to be their caretakers. It's horrible enough for one parent to be sick, but to have both parents sick, I liteally can't imagine what they are going through right now. Everyone is asking what they could do during this horrible storm. First and foremost, you can pray. I believe in the power of prayer and I believe that God can perform miracles. Secondly, I don't want them to have to worry about the financial burden during this difficult time. They are the LAST ones to ask people for help, and I'm sure that they won't like that I'm reaching out for help for them. So anything you could donate would be highly appreciated. I took this upon myself. God Bless you! Thank you in advance. If you personally know them, you know that they put everyone before themselves. It's now our time to help. Prayers, love, and support
