Kenneth Braswell Family Expenses

In January 2017, just before his 49th birthday, Kenny Braswell was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lung cancer.  Recently separated, Kenny has had to rely increasingly on his children for help.  In October, he was sent home from the hospital with hospice care.  His daughter quit her job to care for him full-time, while his son continued to work to cover their expenses, including their mortgage.  Even between Kenny's disability and his son's pay, there are many things the family has gone without, including reliable transportation.  But, they were able to make ends meet. 

Unfortunately, Kenny's son has recently been laid off, and their income has been reduced to his disability payments.  Kenny's health continues to decline, and he is largely incoherent.  His time with his children may not be much longer, and during that time, the stress of caring for their ill father will be combined with the struggle to pay basic, monthly and day-to-day expenses.

Please consider giving any amount that you can to help this family during an incredibly difficult time, and thank you for your help.
