While the whole world is going through a very difficult time, it is especially hard for those who suffer from domestic abuse. Many people in our community know our family and know bits and pieces of what has happened to us, but we are asking for support at this time as we are truly in need as a family.
My mother Rhonda Fouch has been chronically ill with auto-immune disease and skin cancer for 20 years. Her husband, Mike, has been spiritually, verbally, and financially abusive. He has been medically negligent and has refused to accept the reality of Rhonda's illness - calling her a drug addict, saying she was sick because of "sin", and saying that she caused the illness herself.
At this time, Mike has decided to completely cut Rhonda off financially and to evict her, myself and my sisters from our home on May 17th. Due to the pandemic, we have no finances available as our jobs are on hold.
We are a bright, hopeful family, and we know that by any means, God will provide for us! If you feel comfortable donating, we would greatly appreciate it. If you pray, please ask God to bless us with protection, finances, and a safe home. If you are unable to donate, but have other resources you believe would be helpful, feel free to leave a comment below.
For those who donate any amount, we will be gifting you with an audiobook of my new novel, "How's Your Gerbil, Mr. Avery?" which we are looking to publish. This story is a fun, uplifting story written in the classic style of E.B. White (Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little) about Mr. Avery, a failed inventor, and an unexpected visitor named Earnest (who just happens to be a talking gerbil.) Together, Mr. Avery and Earnest learn the importance of community, team-work, and save their town with a new invention!
Thanks and love to you all, you are greatly appreciated.
