We are the aunts, uncles and cousins of Ally Bacon. Ally recently lost her father – our much loved brother and uncle, Ken Bacon of Mill Creek Washington. Ken died unexpectedly after a short illness on the 20th of December
Ally, who has Aspergers, lived with her dad and is now looking to a future without her greatest champion, Ken, who provided Ally with financial and loving support.
Ally and Ken Bacon
We – Team Ally – have started a Go Fund Me campaign to help Ally pay for the transitional costs she now faces. A long term support plan is being worked out but right now Ally is facing the challenge of paying her own way.
The funds we raise will go immediately to supplement Ally’s own wages to pay rent, utilities, food, transport and basic living costs until a plan is in place for long term financial security.
Ken was creative, kind and talented – traits clearly passed on to his daughter. Just like Ken, Ally is a kind and creative soul. She is a hard worker (again, just like her dad), has two jobs, friends and takes pride in herself.
But Ally needs support like so many living with Aspergers.
Our goal is to help Ally plan for a future that gives her security, support and independence. In his memory and for our niece, as members of Team Ally we can help Ally as she builds a more independent life without her dad that is bright.
Ken was proud to describe Ally as a warrior. Even warriors need help from time to time. Team Ally hopes to bring that help.
Maybe you knew Ken for the kind-hearted man he was. Maybe you know Ally for the talented and worthwhile woman she is. Maybe you know of the challenges people with Aspergers have moving through this world.
Join us and be a part Team Ally. Our gratitude for your contribution to help is appreciated more than words can express. Please consider forwarding our story and Go Fund Me campaign to your friends and families.
Here’s to you, Ken. We are here to help.
Meredith, Kelly (RIP), Laurie (Annie), Andy, Marlo, Ken and KC, circa 1968
We'll keep you posted. Thank you!
