Many of you know of the heartbreaking news that a young woman, Anna DeJong, with autism was swept away in the DuPage River on Friday, May 15 while walking her dogs and attempting to cross a flooded pedestrian bridge in Winfield IL. Anna’s father, Dave DeJong, is a longtime friend of mine. Many have been asking what you can do to help the family. Dave is a single dad, whose photography business, struggling for a number of years, has been all but decimated by the Covid19 lockdown order. His other daughter, Kathryn, who also lives with him, has had a brain tumor on her hypothalamus since age 3 and it's been a long, costly journey. Lessening some of the financial stress at this tragic time would be a huge blessing.Your prayers for the De Jong family in their unimaginable grief are much-appreciated. Please feel free to share this GoFundMe.
Thank you all so much,
