I have never in my life asked for financial help with anything. My husband and I have always paid for ourselves and our bills, no matter what.
But, since last July, when my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer), our medical bills have been mounting.
Tom is doing well on the chemo drug he has to take...doing well means the tumors have not grown. He will never be cured. That is impossible at this point..
His cancer is treatable until the cancer figures it's way around the drug, which it will eventually do. Tom worked through last season (he is a landscape gardener)
and he hopes to start working again this spring....but our bills are building. I am now working part time at the library in my town to help with expenses.
I have started this 'you caring' fundraiser in hopes that some money can be raised to help us with the ongoing bills.
If you are at all interested in helping out, that would be wonderful....or pass the link on to anyone you know who might be interested.
I am trying to put photographs on the fundraiser page but so far i have had no luck. i will continue to try in the coming days.
thanks so much for taking the time to read this...i have been absent from deviant art for almost a year now as i have been busy
working and caring for tom. one day soon i hope to get back to my darkroom work. i miss it SO much, but Tom is more important.
warm regards to you all
peace and blessings,
