Even though I have been placed on hospice, I refuse to say that Cancer has won, or that I have lost. I know in the end I will still win because I know Heaven will be a wonderful place. I am ready spiritually, but I am not ready - not mentally, not emotionally and definitely not financially. I don’t want to place any of this burden on my kids - none of the worry, none of the duties of making arrangements, none of the monetary stress. I want them to be able to remember me and grieve without the additional strain that the lack of money will create. And with no life insurance, medical expenses, a mortgage, household utilities, and a car note to be paid, the negative impact that finances will leave with my kids, especially my daughter and granddaughter who live with me, is one of my biggest fears. You have all been so kind and quick to say “let me know if there is anything you need” and many have already done so much for us. But now, the most important thing that I need is peace of mind.
That is why I am asking for your help in covering my final expenses and building a small security net for my children as they begin to step out on their own without my help. We simply cannot do it alone. We not only need help with any amount you can give, but we also need your prayers desperately, now more than ever. This is definitely a difficult path, one that none of us is ready for, but we are all most appreciative of every single prayer and kind word that has been uttered in our names. Thank you all for your support, your friendships and your continued prayers!
With abundant and sincere love, Karen.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7
