Help for J & J

Jane and Jim are struggling to make ends meet due to Jane’s recent brain surgery and some financial hardships they’ve had this year.   

Jane has suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for many, many years and in the last several years the Parkinson’s has taken a toll on her body, mind, and spirit.  In the last few years she has struggled with walking and severe pain due to the long-term effects of Parkinson’s on her body.  On August 13, 2018 she had a Deep Brain Stimulation device implanted in her brain and 4 days later a brain pacemaker was put in her chest.  Her body is adjusting and accepting the implants and on Sept 11 the Deep Brain Stimulation device will be activated.  This is a miracle device that has the probability to eliminate all of Jane’s Parkinson symptoms.  It is still a long road back for Jane after this device is turned on.  She is looking at months of doctor visits to dial in the brain stimulation device for maximum efficacy, and then many months more of rehab to get her body strengthened and healed in many ways after the Parkinson’s symptoms are eliminated.  I have known Jane for 20 years, 10 of those years with Parkinson’s, and I am praying and holding a vision for her complete turn around and healing from this devastating disease.      

Jim travels to prisons in Oregon and Washington and intercesses native ceremony to help prisoners who are seeking changes in their life.   He also helps ex-cons who have just been released from prison.  He is a man of integrity and he has helped hundreds of men re-establish back into society.  Jim is a General/Artisan Contractor in Oregon and he is known for his quality craftsmanship.  What makes this time hard for Jim is he is the main financial provider for him and Jane.  In early 2018 he had a large financial set back, the loss of a 35,000.00-business investment that was basically due to theft.  In the Spring his main developer, who he worked for, filed bankruptcy and left him with 5 months of bills.  In the last few months his work truck broke down and he is looking at 8,000.00 to 12,000.00 for repairs. And now he is home for the most part to help Jane recuperate.  He needs IMMEDIATE financial support to pay the monthly bills and to get his main work truck running properly and reliably.  What finally cracked him was having to put his beloved dog Lucy down because of seizures.  It was the last straw!  Anybody that knows Jim knows nothing about these issues because he never talks about them and he has never in his life had to ask for anything of this nature.  But with the encouragement of those who love him he is allowing me to set up this GoFundMe campaign.  His immediate priorities are Jane and he needs to get back to work.  So, we have set the goal of 35,000.00 in the hopes he can get caught up on living expenses and have the next 6 months of living expenses set aside and his work truck fixed, so he can get back to work. 

Jim and Jane have helped many people for many years.  They have devoted their life to help others in need.  They have opened there home and even their yard at times for people, including myself, who have fallen on hard times.   They are always there when anyone asks.  Their counsel has helped hundreds of men and women.  I have set up this GoFundMe campaign to seek immediate financial help for Jim and Jane, so they can get back on their feet, literally and figuratively, to do what they do best and that is to be of service to those in need.  Please give what you can……even a few dollars will help and add up.  Also, if you so choose, send good thoughts and prayers of abundance and good health for both.  If you have work for Jim (Bear & Wolf Artisan Builders & Craftsman) contact me with your phone number and I will give Jim your name and number (I don't need details).   

I thank you in advance for your generous donations and good thoughts sent their way.
