Fund for Dustin (Tanis) Gross's family

Dustin Gross, known to some as Tanis Dragon, an avid gamer, died after heart surgery on August 30th. He was not doing well before his surgery, and his heart just gave out.


People will know what I say when I talk about his heart being HUGE. He believed EVERYONE deserved a chance, and then another chance. He also was open and welcoming to everyone. Always things to make you laugh, with his schoolboy snicker and the gleam in his eye...


Please excuse the non poetic description. I seriously love that man, and trying not to cry as I type this.


He did rack up some medical bills, which I am going to need some help with, and his personal bills that I can't get exed out by talking to the companies.  The medical bills are for heart surgery, hospital stays, er visits, lab work, office visits, etc.  Personal bills are medical equipment which wasn't covered by insurance, credit card charges, etc, and my bills.


Also, Sheri quit her job to take care of Dustin, so we are living on what I bring in until she is able to obtain a job.


We could use some help. That was heart surgery, so NOT an inexpensive surgery.


Several people also have asked when I'm putting up the GFM account... So.. here it is. The goal is just a suggestion. Though we will need a bunch of help.


I appreciate EVERY dollar you can afford, or as far as you can share this, or even both.  It'll make our lives that much easier and when I say we appreciate it, I do mean that.

Thank you.


and Sheri/Boss Lady
