 MONROE, WA
Janine Shaffer is disabled, and living on a limited income. She was living with her mother, and they  were attacked in their home yesterday by a man with a knife. Her mother died. The killer tried to kill Janine too, and she was seriously injured but was tough, fought back, and has survived. 
    Janine feels she cannot live in the same place where her mother was killed, and where she nearly died. She does not have the funds to be able to live in an apartment, but will probably qualify for public senior housing.
   She needs funds to be able to temporarily obtain a small apartment, with first and last months rent, deposit, and to live until she can get into government housing. Small apartments in the area run anywhere from 800-1200 per month, and with a deposit, we estimate $20,000 should be sufficient for about 1 year. Please give what you can, and tell your friends. She is a strong woman, but really needs some help now. At this time she has not yet been released from the hospital, but she is improving.

I am her brother, and am posting this on her behalf. Thank you in advance.

I am overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity you have all shown for Janine (my mom). She is truly blessed and surrounded by love. She is amazing, and your friendships are truly a testament to everything I already know and love about her. Thank you from every ounce of my broken heart.

We did some fundraising at the Senior Center for Janine tonight and her Friday night bingo family managed to raise over $900.00 dollars for her. She was definitely missed tonight but is in all our prayer. So proud to be a part of it and several of us will be there Sunday to support Janine & her family...
