Malear Strong

On Aug. 22, Lloyd Malear went into UCLA Medical Center for surgery to remove cancer.  According to the doctors best estimates at the time, he was only supposed to be there 7 - 10 days.  Today is Sept. 12 and he is still in the hospital due to complications.  His wife, Betsy has been staying in Los Angeles to be near Lloyd and give him support.  Because they live 100 miles away, Betsy has been staying in a nearby hotel.  It is unclear how much longer Lloyd will have to be in the hospital, but I am asking for funds to help pay for Betsy's extended hotel stay.  She's been staying at Tiverton House, which offers discounts to folks in the Malears situation, but the cost is still over $100 per night.  Trust me, it's not a luxury establishment.  It's a safe, close place to sleep and take a shower.  Many of our friends and family have asked how they could help and this is one way that could really take a burden off of Betsy and Lloyd and allow her to stay in LA, close to Lloyd.  Any amount, large or small would really help and be deeply appreciated.  

The other way you can help is to pray, send healing thoughts and love and energy their way.
