Support for Dennis and Wendy

My name is Diana McGarvin and I am initiating this fundraiser on behalf of Dennis Kurttila. Dennis is married to my niece, Wendy Kurttila. Wendy was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's a few years ago. She has gone steadily downhill and isn't doing well in her struggle with this disease. Dennis is her primary care giver. He has been trying to take care of her, as well as work, but that's becoming increasingly impossible. He has been told that he needs to become her legal guardian which costs around $2,500.00. She needs additional care, whether at home or in a nursing home or some other care facility. The financial burden is becoming overwhelming and Dennis could use any help you are able to provide. There are many fundraisers these days because so many are struggling with financial hardships due to medical issues. This fundraiser is directed to those who know and love Dennis and Wendy.....and to those who are family and friends of those who love Dennis and Wendy. If you are able to help in any amount at all, please know that it will be greatly appreciated.
