Help for Bruce and Julie!

$2,790 of $10,000 goal

This is my dad, Bruce, and my lovely step-mom Julie. They live in Cheyenne, Wyoming where they enjoy a great life together doting on their two grandkids, Jaden and Joshua, hanging out with my sister, our two brothers, and the most recent addition to the Cheyenne crew (me!). Our dad enjoys hunting, fishing, mowing the lawn (I know, it's weird), talking on the phone with our brother in Sacramento fourteen times a day, and barbecuing during hail storms (see photographic proof below). 


A couple of months ago our dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He's a fighter, and while he fights this disease, I'm asking that we make life a little less stressful for him while the medical bills and life's little expenses keep on rolling in. 


He's got a lot of life left to live, and a lot of people he's fighting to live for. I think that if we rally as hard for him as he's rallying for us, we can really make a difference in ways that will bring him peace of mind while he fights the harder fight. 


We're asking for $10,000, which I know is a lot, but we know a lot of people so we're hoping that we can get a lot of people to give a little bit. These funds will help with medical bills, house bills, and making the ends meet during this time.

We know that times are tough for a lot of us, so please, even sharing helps.  


Any thing you can do to help our dad during this time, we appreciate. Thank you so much.

Community comes in all different ways and forms, and that has never been so apparent to me in the last few weeks. I recently moved from Los Angeles, a city that is arguably the definition of "urban sprawl," to Cheyenne, Wyoming.

I've met my neighbors, they know my name at Starbucks (it took them months to figure that out in Los Angeles!). Everyone I've met has been incredibly helpful, and people smile at me at the mailbox. My mail carrier didn't even roll his eyes when I asked him to take my outgoing mail. People strike up conversations with me everywhere I go. They say thank you for the oddest things. It certainly wasn't the culture shock I was expecting.

But like I said, community comes in all forms. And our friends, family, and colleagues from literally all over the globe (from Reno to Singapore) have really stepped up to help my family in this time of need and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, this campaign has been trending for nearly a week. We have almost 200 shares, we've raised more than 1,500 dollars to help my dad and Julie and every little bit goes a long way. The gratitude we feel as this global community supports us while our dad fights his battle makes this big old world feel as small and comforting as this nice little Wyoming town I moved to. Thank you everyone.

I want to take a few moments to say thank you for the outpouring of love and support we have received from all of you who have donated and shared our gofundme. We are humbled and amazed by the response and feel blessed by the people in our lives that have taken the time to share and donate. It has lifted our spirits and reminded us that we aren't fighting this fight alone. My dad is in high spirits, and this keeps us going as well. Thank you so much to everyone. You're all amazing.
