Ray Cobell fight against cancer

Our dear friend Ray Cobell has recently been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. He has been clean and sober for 26 years. Ray has returned to his beloved family and friends of Montana.
His wife and life long companion Dawn of 30 years is struggling financially. She was the only one working but is currently unable to due to her needing to be with Ray. 
Ray is currently in hospice, in Great Falls, Montana. This is approximately 3 hours from their home in Browning, Montana.
Together both Ray and Dawn Cobell have been valuable members of the Yakima Valley. Dawn an elementary school counselor of many years to the Wapato School District. Ray worked for many years for the Job Corp of Fort Simco close to White Swan as a counselor. Later at various treatment centers to counsel troubled teens.
Together they have helped countless families. It is our turn to help them. Please any donation will help.
Please let's help Dawn spend Rays last days by her soul mates side holding his hand. They are not asking for help. Two close friends of mine Maria nd Mauro Guzman are doing all they can for the Cobell's while caring for their own family. I've watched them hurt and push threw weekend trips to Montana after a full work week to try and bring meals and comfort. Now lets see what we can do.  Anything helps...
