Help for our friend William Barnes

Financial help and support for our friend William Barnes

As many of you may have recently heard, we are facing an extraordinary time in the life of our friend, and brother William Barnes (affectionately known as Bill). The man who has been the powerhouse in the lives of so many, the strong tower in times of struggle, the guiding light to the lost and the protector of the vulnerable… now needs us more than ever!

Bill is currently in ICU, fighting for his life, after suffering from acute heart failure. The very strength of his determination became his nemesis. Pushing through the pain, the shortness of breath, and the struggle to simply walk, just so he could be there, for one more person who needed him, has now brought him to his knees. He desperately needs our help but would never ask for it himself. So, on his behalf, we, his friends and family, are answering the question so many of you have asked… “how can we help?”. This is how.

We are asking that you donate whatever you can to help assist with the insurmountable medical expenses associated with his current treatment and his extensive road to recovery. By doing so, you will be making a meaningful difference in the life of a man who has meant the world to all of us.

We are determined to do whatever it takes to see this giant of a man, stand again. We ask for your prayers, for his complete recovery. And, we have faith that one day, in the not so distant future, the man who lived for his family, laughed with his whole body and loved with his entire heart, will again be the Bill that we all adore!

 

With our deepest thanks, and heartfelt gratitude for your generosity,
