Help Michelle Pruett Goudeau and TJ

Friends and family, especially those of you from Piedmont, Ok, the last few years have been rough for many of us losing 1 or both of our parents. For one former Wildcat it has been exceptionally rough . Michelle Pruett Goudeau has lost cousin in January, her mom in February, and her aunt Gaynell in March. While dealing with all of that, her husband Tim was diagnosed with liver cancer and has been battling though it with little success. He is now in the final stages and his diagnosis is bleak. Talking to a few people close to Michelle, she says it is not if he passes. My sister Melody who is working to get Hospice care for Tim says Michelle told her she was hoping Tim could at least make it until TJ, their 15 yr old, graduated but now they are just hoping he can make it until Thanksgiving.

From what I understand, Michelle and Tim have exhausted most of their paid time off and are using Tim's life insurance to survive and pay bills. At this time, Michelle is not sure how she is even going to have a burial for Tim when the time comes. This is where we come in. I am asking every single one of you to open your heart and open your wallet and give what you can even if it is only $10. Please don't read this and think you will do it later, please give while it is on your mind.

Michelle has not asked me for help nor does she know I am doing this and I will block her from it on Facebook. I have a lot of friends from Piedmont on Facebook, but I am asking all of you to give and then to SHARE this so we can get it to everyone we went to school with.

Thank you all,
and God Bless!
