On behalf of my family I would like to thank you for caring and may God bless you and yours!

My husband and I married in Oct of 2008. He lived in Stockton and I lived in Clovis. 135 miles apart. We would take turns commuting back and forth on the weekends.
Once we had secured a home for the both of us (as well as my 15 year old twins) and Tom was healthy enough to physically move, Tom moved here June 2011. He had had a hip and knee replacement which stopped him from coming sooner. We hadn't even lived together as man and wife for a whole year when he had a stroke on April 14, 2012 which happened to be the same day of his sister's memorial. We lost her to ALS the month before. The stroke came after several back to back surgeries and has changed our lives forever. I am hoping with therapy and support groups my husband can get back some of his life. He moved here a year ago and has not had the chance to make any friends or get a job. I am the sole supporter of the household and am working 6 days a week to keep up on the bills. Tom really needs some caring friends but has no way to go out and meet them. It would be nice to get some assistance with the growing medical bills incurred due to this slow personality stealer disease and allow me to get him out of the house to mingle with folks.
Thank you for your consideration!
