Help Shoshana and Larry Matthews

As some of you may already know, Shoshana and Larry Matthews are having a very difficult 2018. After saving their pennies for a year, they left on a long anticipated cruise on December 31. At the first port, Key West, Larry became ill. He was taken to the Lower Keys Medical Center where he was diagnosed with an intestinal blockage. Emergency surgery followed and half his colon was removed. There was no cancer but the surgery took its toll on this 83 year old. After returning home he didn't progress well, was once again hospitalized and is now in a rehab facility. In short, all of 2018 has been filled with doctors and hospitals. 

Due to his condition, Shoshana, a weaver, has had to cancel her art shows, their source of income, and cash flow has completely dried up. They now face medical bills, after Medicare pays, that are certain to be in the tens of thousands of dollars and desperately need help NOW. They are completely out of funds. 

If you can find it in your heart to aid them, they would be forever in your debt. Please consider a donation to help these nice people get back on their feet.
