My name is Bob Noponen andThis is a photo of my Parents, Janet and Robert Noponen. Mom was diagnosed with level 3 ovarian cancer early in 2011. She receieved chemo therapy and later that year was "cancer free". In April of 2013 we lost Dad to an infection in his colon.
Now here we are up to Dec. of 2014 and moms Cancer had returned as a small mass that was removed surgically, the mass however did burst during the procedure and released cancer cells into her system and has subsequently had to restart her weekly Chemo therapy sessions. Declared Cancer Free once again!!! Unfortunately early this spring she also brok her pelvis. She is recovering quite well, there is still a long way to go to help Janet out.
After Dads passing Mom has been left with a large debt on the house and property and at this time I am able to see the worry over the payments and bills on her fixed income and it is also an enormous burden on her health.
I am able to take on odd jobs and do some woodcrafting in the barn on Mom's property to earn survival money and keep the flexibility in my schedule enabling me to take Mom to all of her appointments and do her shopping and help with her meals . I am so familiar with financial burden due to layoffs and such that I do not wish to over burden any of you with large donations. The funds would pay off Numerous Debts and facilitate upgrades, such as a ramp entrance, accessability doors, shower/tub access. and generally making the house more handicapped/elderly friendly.
This being said, I am only asking for a donation of fifty cents. I know that does not seem like much but neither is a raindrop. Enough raindrops will fill a glass...a pond... a lake....or even an ocean.
My sincere thanks.
