Mr. Phil has stomach cancer and bills are piling up. He is living on a fixed income. Even the visits to the doctors office is expensive. Plus, his wife is not in good health.

Phil is a military vet., in his late 70's. His wife, Janice, and he have live in Morganton, NC for about 15 years. They are very giving of themselves.

About a year ago, he had to have surgery on his heart. Now, he has stomach caner. He has a feeding tube implanting into his stomach. Phil and his wife plans to move into their daughter home near Jacksonville Fl, but that costs money that they don't have.

Phil has help alot of people to find a new way of Life. In years past he was very active in a 12 Step program. He made alot of 12th Step calls to people  that needed help, even more people he didn't know. He treated people of all age, race, creed, rich or poor the same. He is always got a minute for you to tell him your troubles. He wears a smile and has a warm hug, or a good joke to tell you. He never complains about his pain, and still tries to help another person, without telling them about his problems.

The reason for this fundraiser is to help with the cost of the move. He and his wife are older folks. They aren't able to do the packing of all their belongings and get  a U-Haul. They will meet someone to drive the truck to Florida. and more people to help with the unpacking. Also there will be final bills for ulitieries, doctors, etc. Plus travel funds to Florida.

I hope that one day, I will be as cool as he is. Phil tells me how he handled different things. I want to be able to pass that information and suggestions on the next people that is going though life little battles. Sometimes, Phil will tell me that the best way to get over things is to just pick yourself up my your boot-stings and move on one day at a time, Maybe one second at a time. I love Phil and his wife like you do your own Mother and Father. They have taught me alot about living life on lives terms. 

Please pass this on to your family and friends. He needs the help. Plus put both of them in your prayers tonight.

Thank you for time.
