Help Micheline & Terry's Cake Shop

Hi everyone, Terry & I need help for our shop. We're so close to being done but are falling short, we still need to hook up the walk in fridge & rack oven, lighting, cabinets & counter for front end, store sign, packaging for our online launch and a bit more.  After moving to our larger location (12 yrs of saving for it!) I was injured in a head on collision, suffered a brain injury & other injuries.  2 1/2 years of a lot of rehab and therapies later, we've used all our personal funds plus business loan, credit cards to float the shop and we're pretty much depleted.  Elbow grease & resourcefulness got us this far but we need a bit of a miracle to finish up, officially open and have a steady income to pay back down all the debt(and hire help!).  I've come so far to heal myself and get back to work full speed, there are things I'll never regain since my accident but I really don't want to give up this shop after all of my hard work for the past 15 years to build it up.  It became more urgent when we found out I'd maxed out my auto insurance benefit, which covered all my accident rehab plus some lost income.  But now without that, we're pretty close to the edge.  Asking for help is so hard but I realize we can't do this alone anymore. So please consider donating or even just sharing, even if all you can give is a kind word, after all we've gone through in the past couple years, it's appreciated. Thank you <3
