Helping Hand For A Friend In Need

Many of you know the Francis Family (John & Melody).  Melody was working for the Army in Seoul Korea and was recently diagnosed with liver failure.  She was flown to Houston Methodist Hospital and is awaiting a liver transplant.  She is an incredible lady and has worked with children for over twenty years.  The last 15 being with military families overseas and children with special needs.  She has always been there for others, so I asked if I could start this campaign to help them when they need it most.  Without going in to all their personal business, they do have Health Insurance; however, no income at this time.  John worked in Education in Korea and obviously left to be with his wife.  They are exhausting their savings and retirement funds due to all the expenses.  John is also having to stay in a Hotel and we all know how that can add up.
I PERSONALLY know this Family and have known them for almost 30 years.  This was 100% my idea and I did ask the Family for their permission.  Melody's Mother In Law keeps me updated on her condition.  So please know that the need is real and I hope that you can lend a hand.  Any amount helps.  That is the beauty of this site, many can contribute and it will add up.  Thank You for your consideration.
