Update: Thank you to everyone who has already so generously donated and shared this fundraiser page. This update is to give you more information on Ellen's needs and how the money will be used.

Backstory: If you knew Ellen & Seth Hoover at all you know that above all things they radiated love - for each other, for family, and for hundreds of friends. They spent every spare minute together for 32 years and never considered that someday a sudden hemorrhagic stroke would take Seth to his heavenly home, leaving Ellen to face the brick wall of life without Seth and to navigate the maze of financial burdens without his income. She works full time, has found a part time evening job, and helps at banquet facilities on weekends. Still, this is not enough.

Costs: She is in danger of losing their home, has multiple other accounts to pay as well as hospital bills and funeral expenses.

How You Can Help: If you are able to donate any amount it will all be used to help make her house payment and to pay down her debt.
