Elder Veteran couple scammed out of life savings

Hi. Recently my elderly in-laws Ernest Harris and his loving wife were coerced and scammed out of their entire life savings.

The impact of this has devastated my family for countless reasons; as it is possible that they may lose everything (house, car, etc) and currently cannot even afford basic necessities.

The situation is increasingly dire as Ernest is a Vietnam Veteran who has suffered the last 50+ years from the egregious effects of agent orange and debilitating PTSD symptoms due to his deployment as a Preventative Medicine Specialist amidst the height of combat.

To make a heartbreaking situation even more difficult, Ernest was recently diagnosed with cancer and now can no longer fund his medical surgeries or care.

I ask of our communities to please reach inside your hearts and share whatever monetary donations, prayers, or well-wishes you can spare, as the future of these loving and generous community members looks increasingly perilous, at best.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and may peace be with you.
