Barbara Ebel's Funeral Expenses

Barbara Ebel is a caring, loving woman with a heart of gold.  Sadly, last year, she was diagnosed with chronic heart failure and her kidneys are failing, in addition to being diagnosed with lung cancer.  She has been recieving dialysis treatments 3 times a week, and has been hospitalized numerous times due to her failing health.

The recent years have been finacially and emotionally draining for Barbara, having lost both of her parents and husband, in addition to her parapalegic son which she lost 3 years ago. Her son Ricky passed away from a severe infection, Barbara was caring for him for the past 20 years after he was injured in a drive by shooting.  Asking for money and help is never an easy thing to do and Barbara is unaware we created this account, but at this point our options are very limited. She is in danger of losing her home, and the medical bills are piling up, her family is doing the best they can to help out, but additional support is desperately needed in order for her to get proper medical care.

She has been a member of the Saint James community for 36 years, and the grandmother of 6 beautiful grandchildren she means the world to.  She has always been one to help others, when Barbara's brother in law passed away she paid for his funeral, after having dealt with all her personal loss, because there was no one else who would.  Barbara has filled a void in her heart by rescuing 10 sweet loving dogs who have gotten her through these hard times, that mean to the world to her, but are getting more difficult to care for due to the financial strain. 

Barbara's heart may be failing but it is filled with more love and compassion for her beloved pets, family and friends than can be put into words.

Please help us help her as she has helped so many around her.  Any little bit would be helpful and appreciated.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
