HELP SHERRY RICH

$15,542 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 125 people in 9 months
Created April 14, 2018
If you've heard Jay's song "Blank Stares", you know the story behind it.

Our 53 year old mother, Sherry Rich, suffers from the final stages of early-onset Alzheimer's. This horrible disease has robbed her not only of her memory, but the ability to drive, work, talk, dress herself, bathe, put on her own make-up, etc. 

For the past 3 years, our Uncle Pete(her younger brother), has selflessly been her caretaker. He moved from Texas and has stayed with her full-time. He has been a blessing to our family, but has recently made the tough decision to move back to be with his mentally ill daughter. 

With that, we're asking for your help.

As of June 1, our mother will be without care. Insurance won't provide since she's so young. And our father(Joe Rich) works 60+ hours/week at John Deere in Waterloo, IA - leaving him unable to be with her during the day.

Local care, basically a daycare for Alzheimer's patients, is approximately $100/day, and care facility centers cost up to $5K/month. We can't afford either. 

Our mother(and wife) was the best. She sacrificed everything for us, taught us how to love people, and showed us how to give our lives to Jesus. It's with a deep sadness in our hearts that we humbly ask and pray for God to quickly provide. We know she would have done the same for us.

Thank you - from our family to yours.

Jay, Cassie, Amber and Joe.

Hey y’all!

Wanted to thank every one of you kind souls for helping my momma. With less than a month to go, we are sitting at $13K. This is a strong start, but we still have a ways to go to reach our goal of $60K. If you would, please share on your socials and spread the word via text, email, sending to radio and news stations, your church, etc.

I personally won’t stop until my momma is in a home and well taken care of for the remainder of her life.

With all my love and prayers to each of you.

Humbled,
-Jay Allen

To all who have so selflessly given, thank you. All we wanna do is help our momma, and you’re helping us believe that it’s actually possible. In just a few days, we’ve raised $6,150. PLEASE, continue to share. Our goal is $60K by June 1. It’s a big goal, but God is bigger. -Jay
