Family and Friends of the Mossey-Eastman family are raising money for family needs while Gary Eastman, remains in critical care.

As many of you may already know, my cousin Kim's spouse, Gary Eastman, has been in the ICU at Elliot Hospital since Christmas. Gary had been admitted a few days prior with a mysterious rash and flu or pneumonia like symptoms, and today remains on a respirator and heavy sedation with severe lung damage and on dialysis. There is still no diagnosis, and now way to project how and when he will recover. He's literally a medical mystery, as no doctor or specialist has been able to determine what exactly has caused his condition. Since his condition is a mystery, his recovery remains indefinite.

While Gary remains in critical condition, Kim is left to worry about not only Gary, but how she will provide for their combined 6 children. Gary has worked 3 jobs up until now to support his family, while Kim drives a school bus so that she can care for their two youngest while the others are in school. This hard working family lives "week to week" as many of us do these days), and has suddenly gone from 4 incomes to one part-time income.

Kim's part time income can't cover the necessities mortgage, utilities, and other expenses of supporting the family, and with little ones at Gary in critical condition, she can't very well go searching for a second job. The family also has immediate needs like diapers, formula, groceries, baby wipes, gas money, and such.

Even the smallest contributions will add up and make an impact and help Kim's family get through this.I In addition to cash donations, We are also collecting the following items for them:

-Boys Diapers Size 4 and Baby Wipes
-Emfamil Powder
-Cereal, Kid Friendly Snacks and Jucies
-Easy meal Ingredients the older kids can prepare while mom's at the hospital.
Walmart and Market Basket Gift Cards, Gas Cards
Home cooked meals in family sized portions

If you are able to help out in any way, then please do. Gary and Kim are hardworking people, awesome parents, and the first to help someone else out when they need lets help them!

If you have questions, have items you'd like to donate that you need us to pick up, or need the Mossey-Eastman families mailing address, please contact me directly at
