This fundraiser is to help my dear friend who is dealing with Heart Failure and is having trouble paying bills.

Hello. I am starting this fundraiser for a very dear and close friend of mine. Marlynn has had her fair share of heart ache ( no pun sorry )in her life time. To start, She was married for over 35 years to only lose her husband to Cancer. They found out he had bone cancer and in less then 10 months he was gone.

Exactly one year later she got a phone call that would change her life yet again.. Her first born child was dead. She was found in her house passed of heart failure at the age of 39, Can you imagine? She had to help pick out a casket for her oldest child. She was devastated needless to say. Five days later she had her first major heart issue. Her family took her to the hospital only to be told she would die in less then 24 hours. Well with her being as tough as she is she came thru.

Two weeks after she came home we had to tell her that her only sister had passed away. How much can one person handle? Once she heard that news she had a serious and major stroke. Once again we were told she would die from the stroke. Thank GOD that didn't happen. She made it.

Meanwhile bills were starting to accumulate as things were getting so out of control. Her family ( myself included ) helped out as much as possible. Her daughter took a third job to help pay the bills.

Her medication and office visits were getting so expensive. She would have to be seen by the Dr. every other week for the first year. The bills were adding up SO fast. She never told anyone how hard things were really getting.

Her treatments include a full time oxygen machine that is very expensive.As well as oxygen tanks to take to the dr. office. Her medications are over 5k a month She has let a lot of bills go. She has to be very selective on what get paid. I went over the other day and it broke my heart that she was eating the 10 cent noodle soup. She is too proud to ask for help but Im NOT.. I will ask. I want to help.. Please,, wont you help a lovely very honorable woman who would do anything for anyone. Im so worried she will die if she cant pay for her medications. PLEASE HELP!! She loves her grand-kids and Id hate to see her go before her time. Together we can make a difference.

There is NO way I can thank you all enough.. Lets get my very best friend back on the right track.

Please be assured that the money collected by this fundraiser will go to help pay her bills and medications ONLY.
