Love for Freddie Windsor's Family

For those of us that know the Windsors, we see and feel their wholehearted living from up close and also thousands of miles away. Their faith runs deep, they find joy in the darkest of moments, and they actively choose to support others in their times of need. Well, they are back in the thick of it with Freddie in heart failure (and facing another heart/kidney transplant), and constant trips-or admittance- to Mayo to monitor his health. He is far too ill to work and Cindy, while having a good job in education, has but FIVE family paid time off days she can use this entire school year. She has applied and been approved for FMLA, but her school district does not offer payment for any days taken off to care for her husband or youngest son, Zion, should he get sick, beyond those five days. In addition, when Freddie receives his new heart and kidney, they must live in Rochester for three months. That's at least three months of double mortgage/rent payments. This is but a snippet of the stressors they are facing right now. 

They now need our help in the form of love, encouragement, prayers, chores, kid care, and the reason for this campaign- money. Any money raised here will be deposited directly into their bank account to pay for medical bills, travel expenses, and simply everyday expenses as Cindy will most definitely be taking more than five days off and will not be compensated. Please consider donating to Freddie and his wonderful family. If you are not able to contribute financially, please keep them held in your hearts and prayers. It takes all of us in many different ways, to care for our people. We are all in this together.
