Assistance For Myrl & Lorie Horton
Not sure what to write so I'm may sound like I'm rambling on. Guess the only thing to say is that my Dad is the strongest person I know. Doesn't matter what he's going through he gets up every morning goes to Timmies to get him and Mom and coffee and a timbit for Buddy, who is his best companion, he treats that dog better then us kids I like to joke him, he then walks to work every day. 5 days a week walks down the hill to work, walks up the hill home for lunch and back down the hill for the rest of his shift. If you know my Dad, you've seen him walking up and down that hill at least twice a day every day. Last Thursday at 7pm Mom and Dad recieved a phone call from the Dr saying they had bad news regarding some medical test he had done the previous week. Acute Meyloid Leukimia was the diagnosis. This morning they got a call they had a bed ready for him at the London cancer clinic. As of now he will be there for 3-4 weeks and we're told that he wouldn't be able to return to work again. My Mom, who has been a PSW for many years doing community home care for many people going above and beyond for her paitents has the kindest heart of any woman i know. When we shared paitients i was so proud to hear the wonderful words from them as to how loving and caring my mom is. It has been a loss to her patients as she has had some health issues, not terminal but to a degree that her drs have advised to stop working. She will not be returning to work anytime soon now that my Dad needs her so much more. Mom will be looking for a place to stay in London so she doesn't have to drive back and forth and can be closer to the man she has been married to for 40 years. Please, if you can donate anything to help my parents make this situation a little less of a financial burden, myself and my sister and brother and all our extended families near and far thank you for your generosity.
