For my friend Adele

My name is Adele Gainey Robinson. Please help me raise funds to help support post- surgery expenses that have changed my life forever.

On July 10th I had to undergo surgery to have my pancreas and spleen removed as they both ceased to function. Although lifesaving, the procedure has left me with a host of new problems. Since the surgery, I've been on continuous tube feedings, I am now a type 1 diabetic with uncontrolled spikes and lows, I'm on multiple medications, and have to have several follow up special appointments which require travel and co pay expenses.

The special appointments and pharmacy co-pays have depleted my savings, I'm receiving termination notices from my utility companies, and my job had to make the difficult decision to let me go after 11 years, as I can no longer commute and it's still too soon to determine when I can return to work again.

I've never been one to ask publicly for financial assistance, I am taking the necessary steps to file for disability and unemployment, but at this very moment, as soon as I get one utility bill paid, I get a termination notice from another.

Please, I'm in jeopardy of losing my medical insurance, utilities, my home of 43 years, and my health if I'm not able to pay for the many special doctor's appointments that I will need going forward. I'm grateful for any amount you could spare, and if you would forward this request to your friends, associates, or even church members, I would be forever grateful.

Sincerely,

Adele Gainey Robinson
