Help John Nelson w/ household bills

John Nelson is a husband and father of two children with his sweet, loving, faith filled wife (my friend) Jen Nelson in Hollywood, FL.

He has been very ill of late and when admitted into the Miami Veteran's Hospital, several cancerous tumors were found. Jen could really use some help... 

She can't work craft shows to sell her soap and wares because she needs to be by his side for many hours a day. They will be seriously hurting very soon with the loss of both incomes.

I am opening up this GoFundMe account to help her out. She is too overwhelmed right now to do it herself.

I know many of you don't know me, but Jen and I have become good friends over the past 2 years. I can only give you my word that I will immediately transfer over the monies to her account via a PayPal transfer. If you feel uncomfortable donating through this avenue, please contact her via IM or text message to get her mailing address. 

She could really use some sort of gift cards for a grocery store or one of those VISA gift cards. Whichever method makes you feel most comfortable, I am all for it. If you don't know, GoFundMe does take a percentage so perhaps gift cards would be a better option if you have her address.

Let's rally together for someone who is always generous, cheery and kind ...

UPDATE: he is home and going to the VA  for radiation treatments daily.

Thank you all,
Wendy Powell, fellow soapmaker (and web developer in real life)
