Marlene and Joel Alfieri need our help. After a series of financial setbacks, the burden has become too overwhelming to handle alone. Besides being senior citizens on a very limited income, they have medical expenses that include frequent doctor visit co-pays and high cost medications. Recently, they had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave their home that they love and have lived in for 20 years. A week ago, Joel had a stroke. He has been returned home, fortunately, but the stress of having yet another hospital visit bill is putting the Alfieri’s in a further disadvantaged position. Everyone, who has had the pleasure of meeting Marlene and Joel, knows what a compassionate, sweet, and giving couple they are. If someone is in need, they are there to help despite not having enough for themselves. Their genuine caring nature inspires us all. It is time for us to help them in their time of need. Please donate what you can. Thank you!

I am sad to say that Joel is in the hospital again. Marlene’s message :

Joel is back in the Hospital with a Rectal Abscess and is having emergency surgery on June 10th, 2018. The abscess is large and he is on three antibiotics. They will excise it and put in a drain. We still need your help. We are afraid as to what this will cost. Thank you so much to all of you that have already helped. God Bless and Thank You, Marlene and Joel.

Marlene and Joel have a message for you!

I want to tell all of you that the relief of knowing that when those medical bills come, and they will, that it won't cause Joel's stress level to go up. There aren't words to tell all of you what this has meant to us. Love and Thank You, Marlene and Joel.

P.S. If you would like to still donate and haven’t yet, the campaign is still open. Many thanks, Rebecca
