Funds for this wonderful family

I started this go fund me for this wonderful family that I got the pleasure to know. Everything was going great until the terrible diagnoses of cancer, both breast and bone. As you know this can take a toll on a family both emotionally, physically and financially. And As much as I would love to take everything away for them I can’t, so I pray this helps in any way. This is a family of 9; 7 of them being children, who are absolutely amazing and caring, and just very nice all around that need help. Between their mother Amber having to go back and forth to St. Louis for treatments multiple times a week, a renovation that needs finished but no finances to do so, and the parents out of work because 1) cancer and 2) someone needs to care for the children who aren’t in school and what not, and them getting having to stay at a hotel because as of this moment their home isn’t livable (renovation) this is just becoming a lot. The diagnosis that the mother got was terminal, and all she wants,all I want is for her to be able to live okay,and for the children to be able to have their home and mom back home for the amount of time they have. Anything donated towards this will go to them for all of their needs from traveling, materials for their home, and the things they need  in general, because I know this is very needed. I’m sure as Christmas is coming they would love to see their kids smile after this tough year, any parent would! 

every dollar counts and I just want to thank you so much for helping out! It will not go unnoticed!
