And now for something…completely different…

7 Jun

So ya’ll know by now, I very rarely beg for money. And it’s always for q good cause.

Well, I’ve got a cause for you today.

My friend Jackie has been going through some shit the last couple of years. Back in 2013 her husband Mike was diagnosed with cancer – this led to the Jackster having to give up  a lot of things she had planned to be by Mike’s side.

Blah blah, cancer treatment…things seem okay, life should return to normal.

But…that’s not exactly how things went — since about Oct 2014 Mike has had complications and new problems one after the other. And, on top of all of that, the cancer is back. Right now getting back on the chemo bandwagon seems to be the obvious path right?  Well, between infections and complications and fate just being an asshole….Mike has been in and out of the hospital much too regularly for anyone to have to handle.

Jackie’s taken a leave from her job, which they fully supported. And Mike’s disability won’t  kick in for a bit However, now all of the insurance premiums fall on her. On top of a mortgage, food, utilities…all that stuff we need to live day-to-day. I’ve paid COBRA and inexpensive it is not.

So, I’m asking, for Jackie and Mike, if you’ve got it to spare think about giving a little to help out some awesome people. You can head out to this link and give a little and know that you are helping REAL people. And that they’ll get the money you send.

I totally understand if this isn’t your “thing’.. but give it a thought at least. There area a couple of awesome people who could really use your help. And, hey if you can’t donate right now, send a prayer or two up.

Just an FYI — I get absolutely NOTHING from your donation, except for a sense that my friend and her husband are taken care of. If this isn’t your bag, I should have a list of shops you could get a Gift Card from to send and make things easier….

Tell Me Somethin' Good!!
