Help Sandy Overcome a Devastating Loss

Its been a rough year for most of us, but, for our dear friend Sandy Ranney,  its been an especially devastating year. 

Sandy lives each day with the many symptoms related to MS, requires complicated medical care, and, the medications required are costly to say the least. In February Sandy lost her beloved service animal, Henry, after 13 years of constant companionship.  Henry was the St. Mary's Hospital Fitness Center mascot.....we were all confident that Sandy would get through this loss somehow with the help of her Husband of 29 years, and sole caretaker, Fred.  

Fred.....what a special human being. Quiet, witty, intelligent and kind.  Sandy's love, rock, chauffeur, chef, her everything.   Fred lost his six week battle with AML/HLH December 14th.  We were all floored by this very sudden diagnosis of a rare form of Leukemia and what followed so soon after.  Fred will be greatly missed by, not only, his family and friends, but his MS family.  Fred founded the area "MS Caretaker" support group in 2015 and helped so many families in our community. 

Sandy suddenly finds herself in need and without her Rock to get her through.  Please help be Sandy's rock!  We need immediate funding to cover rent, utilities, medical, food, etc.  Thank you in advance for your kindness.
