Ditch - Pat Thurston emergency fund


Our generous, caring and loving sister needs our support in her difficult times right now.  She is always giving to others, now it is her time to receive.

As she shared on her Facebood page, she  has an incurable disease, which along with her finacial situation is  creating a lot of stress in her life right now. 

I know a lot of you have said you want to help her after you read her post on facebook, but  probably don't know what to do, here is one way.

She is in need of money to help alleviate the stress she is under.  The money will be used for her house payments, utilities, gas for her vehicle to get to her doctors appointments, vehicle insurance, food, her much needed vitamin supplements to keep her health up, and personal hygiene items.

Thank you all so much for your kind donations, I know she will appreciate it. 

If you are not aware of what she has been going through, here is what she posted on her Facebook page:

"CARDIO MICROVASCULAR ISCHEMIA ... My health, here it is and know I just need understanding, not sympathy, as I explain how much life took a twist in the road on me.
I have had a number of medical scans in the last few months to identify if I stroked this past spring; it was discovered I have vascular issues, and I'm on medication now. A recent brain MRI identified the 'yecky to deal with' stammer many of you have heard me blurb out, comes from chronic microvascular ischemia, a form of dymensia. It's not a 'joke' I thought caused by all the stress I've been under no work for more than a year, full time Masters and recently out if money and may lose my home, I'm on the downside of owning.
As many of you know me, it's probably been happening without realizing, as I forget the simple things, like names or that I just put the kettle on for tea, then hear it whistling! I have to keep lists to get by daily and that's how my life will continue, day to day as I reason with why and strive to get through 'mylist' of what I need to try to get through before I forget what I need to do.
I only ask that each of you be patient, let me speak, I can't chatter your ears off any more, remember for me, remind me, and I can only thank you as I have nothing else to give, I need to take care of me now.
In the wind - Ditch"
