Trying to raise $1,000 for my friend Barb Wold, recently diagnosed with cancer in the midst of unemployment crisis...

Please help... my dear friend Barb is fighting cancer. She and her partner Mary Ellen are like family to me and they've been hit hard by the unemployment crisis... now this. Any amount is a help to reach our goal and help me help a friend in need who has always been there for me... ~
Much Love and Appreciation for your support,
Liz Melendez

Barbara Wold deserves a lot of credit as a pioneer of new media in New Mexico and a huge amount of regard from the community of bloggers. She also needs help.

She and her partner, Mary Ellen Broderick, are struggling with the expense and trauma of cancer. Barb has metastatic liver cancer and her partner, an architect, has been out of work for over a year. Cancer. A word that one would rather soften. One wishes something like "health issues" would be direct enough. Unfortunately, with words, the problem is to specify. But, if you have ever been around any medical oncology, you know how it feels. The word itself is like a kick in the gut, and that is just it being a word without the reality of it.
