Can You Help?

One of our military families needs your help. Army Wife linked to the latest bad news for the family.

Reid writes, of his wife Ellicia, who currently has a diagnosis of breast cancer (for the second time) , she has recently undergone surgery for the breast cancer. She also has 11 metastatic tumors in her brain, and multiple tumors of the lung. Reid has returned from a tour over in Afghanistan...and the couple has children.

Here's the latest news they received

Ok, we have finally received word back from the military. Hospice care is not covered. Which means, any home care we provide Ellicia here will be out of our own pocket.

This is going to be expensive. So, reluctantly, and humbly, we'd like to ask those of you who stop by...

Please help. Anything will be appreciated. Ellicia will likely need home care as her mind shuts down. And she wants to be at home, not in a hospital... home, surrounded by our children.

If you can help at all - please do. If you are unable to donate, please stop by and leave a comment of support or send an email to Ellicia. It's a hard enough job being a soldier - add this on top and you have a family with the weight of the world on their shoulders we need to help them as much as we can.

Reid has a paypal donation button on his sidebar.

Thank you.
