As you all may or may not know, Rick was diagnosed with advanced esophageal cancer.
Rick started showing symptoms back in March, right around the time the pandemic was just starting to hit strong, which in part, is why I believe we couldn’t get proper timely care and/or a proper diagnosis of the real problem at hand. Unfortunately, by the time he was properly diagnosed. The cancer had spread from his throat, into his intestines, his organs, his bones and even his brain.
Now my mother and Rick don’t live lavishly, but they did build their life upon 2 full time incomes. Ricks job was fairly new at the time, so he had hadn’t earned any real sick time or vacations pay, and my mother has been working less and less, in order to spend more time at home, taking care of Rick.
My intent with this is to hopefully make up for some of that income that has been missing over the past 8 months. I know I won’t get it all back. But anything that can help bring my Mother’s day to day stress levels down a bit, would be greatly appreciated.
Their world has been turned upside down , and with some of the worst possible timing.
Thank you all, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
