I've just learned that my Uncle's wife, Maria "Janie", has stage 4 ovarian cancer. He has to take off work to help her and they are quickly going into debt as bills and living expenses are weighed down by medical and transportation costs. My Uncle, Maurice, has started a fundraiser on GiveForward
with a goal of $5,000. If anyone can contribute or share this, please do. They have two grown sons, Sammy and Chris.
I've always lived far away from them, but for a short time. I lived in Texas for about half a year where I got to know the boys and Janie. They had meager living conditions, but they got by. My Uncle worked as a school bus driver back then. He's also an authorized Harley repairman and has a beard that makes him look like a ZZ Top member. I remember Janie as being rather cheerful and friendly. Her and Maurice and the boys have gone through a lot. But they always managed.
She's the love of my Uncle's life. I'm going to go through my art inventory and see if there is anything I can sell to donate money to them. I don't have any income, so cannot help them directly. If anyone direct me to somewhere they can possibly get help, I'd appreciate it.
