Help Andrea keep warm this winter!

Many of you are fortunate enough to know my beautiful friend Andrea. She has a huge heart and would do anything for anyone, and has over and over again in her life.  
Last March 2017 she was given 4-6 months to live after given the devastating news she has terminal cancer at age 49.   Of course we all know that Andrea loves a challenge, or it’s better stated that she has been handed more challenges in this life than 100 people deserve, but she has never backed down and has always fought for what is best for herself and her 3 beautiful and amazing children.  This struggle has been no different and she has fought and struggled through the past 18 months.  None of it has been easy on her or her children. 
Andrea is a single parent struggling to make end meet when she was diagnosed.  She recently lost her job of 25 years.  She just had major surgery last week she is recovering from.    We have had no fundraiser for Andrea because she is a proud woman and does not want any hand outs.  
But here is the deal.......she has not had an air conditioner for 2 years so she sleeps in the living room with her children and on occasion they go to friends houses and Andrea stay in her hospital bed in the living room.  Now she also needs a new furnace!  
Now I know Andrea will probably not talk to me for a couple days, but this is the only way I know to get her to let her friends help her out and to keep her and her children warm this winter!  
Anything will help and if all you can give is a few prayer that is more than enough and hugely appreciated!  
Please forward this to anyone that you know that would want to help Andrea!   
Thank you so much and God Bless you all!
