A Letter to my Instructables Family
I come to you today to ask for your loving support because the Positive "sunshine" you know here, is hurting for my sister, her son and my family. It takes a huge blow to knock me down to the point that I am discouraged but the past few months my family has endured tragedies that have been difficult to bare and to openly share. My nephew has needed a kidney and pancreas transplant for five years and has recently been accepted into the donor transplant program and one of the requirements is to set up a funding program to cover medical expenses that are not covered by his insurance. Although we do not have a huge family and friend support group, we have managed to raise 65% of the modest $5000.00 that is needed for his transplant. We are nearing the end of our fundraiser and although it is very difficult for me to ask for help. I am humbled at this point and ask for your loving support.
We have always been a hard working self sufficient family and have never had to ask for help from people outside our immediate family until now . . . Your support would bring a great relief to my sister who is 75 years old and about to collapse under the pressure of all the responsibilities of taking care of her youngest child who is 50. We are grateful for your consideration and support ~ I love my dear instructables family and all of the love you have shown me over the years.
