Effie Jackson - We love her!

Update: Ben Jackson passed from this life to heaven on December 19th, 2017. The financial support collected here will continue to bless his family as they encounter funeral costs and other expenses. Please consider supporting Effie and Melina in his honor. God bless you all.

Effie Jackson is an amazing woman who has shown her strength and faith in God to us for many years.  Because we love her and are called to carry each other's burdens, I would like to raise money for her to help with her many expenses.  With all her other stressors, let's try to at least eliminate finances from being so high on the stress list.  Effie has tirelessly worked full time and taken care of Ben and Melina for so many years now and with Ben transitioning to Hospice, her focus needs to be on Ben's healing here or in heaven and both her healing and Melina's healing from all they have been through.   I am starting this Go Fund me in the hopes that we can blow them away with our love and support.

As an aside, I am passionate about supporting her and others in the most generous way.   Seven years ago when my then husband had been out of work for a year (and I had been a stay at home mom so we had no income) and some difficult revelations had come to light and my mom and I were both diagnosed with stage 3 cancer within weeks of each other, amazing friends and family decided to take it upon themselves to raise money for me to help me focus on physical, spiritual, and emotional  healing.   While we were not on our last dime, this selflessness on the part of SO many people, was one of the most encouraging things that could have ever happened and it did indeed help take away the financial stress and allow me to use my energy to heal in other ways.   I believe this is one of the most Christlike things we can do for our friend Effie and I pray you will give as you feel led!!!  

Knowing Effie as well as I do, I believe we can trust her to use any donations wisely and there are certainly so many needs.  As you can imagine, even if insurance decides to cover everything there is much they don't cover.  And when life is disrupted, it adds extra expense to everything.  So this fundraiser is general in  nature as far as expenses are concerned.  Additionally, if you want to donate but feel like you need it to be tax deductible, please let me know and  I may be able to set something else up to help.

Thank you so much and Many Blessings,
Carol Jackovich
