Help Jael, her Kids & Father

Thank you all for taking the time to look at this story! I am creating this for everyone's great friend Jael, her children and her terminally ill father who everyone loves, Ray Helmlinger. Ray was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2015 that then progressed into bone cancer and given only 1 year to live. He beat the odds that year and that was 3 years ago YAY! Unfortunately this time hospice has been called in and Jael is doing EVERYTHING she can to make sure he has a very comfortable and happy rest of his time with his family. We all know how dedicated Jael is to her family, friends and career. She would help any of us out if we were in need no matter what time of day it was. Jael is too proud to ask for help so this is our chance to show her how much she means to us. With all of the medical bills, appointments and time gladly taking care of her dad Ray, Jael can not work so her income is very limited. She has already taken the last month off work and needs to be at her house full time to take care of Ray. Her son was able to take an emergency leave from the Army for the past 2 weeks so he can help with the house and his grandfather. Lets help this amazing family out with donations, phone calls or messages to check up on them, if you live near her maybe go visit her and show how much you care.

Any donation will help and if you can't donate please share so we can try to reach our goal!
