A Christmas Blessing for Walter and Francesca

Hi guys!

So originally this GoFundMe was to send Walter and Francesca on a trip to San Francisco as a nice Christmas gift. It has since come to my attention though via a mutual friend, Dave Stamm, that they are struggling right now more than we realized because Walter is dealing with kidney stones again and the medical issues and financial strain are adding up. So now the goal is to not only give them some fun, which is extremely important for their mental and emotional well-being, but also to help them with rent and living expenses for the holidays.

If you can contribute financially that is great, and if you can't then please keep them in your prayers and good thoughts and if you can reach out to them to say hi that would be good because they are going through a lot over the past few years. This is the second time that Walter has had to deal with kidney stones, it happened last year at this time as well, and he has to go off of some of his medication for his Multiple Sclerosis in order to treat the kidney stones and that's very difficult. Francesca is also dealing with health issues of her own from early onset Parkinson's so both of them are trying to maintain their health as best they can. Yet despite everything, they do their best to be positive and loving to everyone around them.

They almost never ask for help, they certainly didn't this time that's for sure, but when we find out that they need it I figure it's our chance to be able to do something kind for them as a thank you for their own kindness to others. We all know that Walter and Francesca are the people who would give the shirt off their own backs to anyone who is in need, and even though they struggle they are always doing things for others, so I figure now is our chance to give them some love in return and bless them as they have always been a blessing to us. They don't know anything about this GoFundMe, it's a surprise, so please shhhhh....
