Ryan and Trish Jones, parents to a sweet, free spirited daughter, Sissy, with an infectious laugh and mega-watt smile. Though generous themselves, freely giving to friends, donating to varies charities, and known for committing random acts of kindness, Trish and Ryan have a difficult time asking for that same generosity, in their time of need. That’s where I come in. I feel compelled to do what I can to help them get the assistance they need, and the assistance they so deserve. The care they give to this sweet girl is unmatched by anything I ever had the pleasure to witness in my life. Though 18 years old, “Sissy” has the mental and physical capacity of an18 month old infant, of whom has many special needs. Trish and Ryan's unwavering love and attention for their daughter is awe-inspiring.

Sadly, Sissy has had some unexpected medical needs of late, stemming from pneumonia and sepsis. While her parents continue to do all they can to help care for Sissy, including spending a week in the hospital bed next to her, keeping her calm and rested, Sissy isn’t responding to the hospital care as well as hoped. Unfortunately, and very much adding to the mounting stress of caring for Sissy, their lacking paychecks reflected the days of which they spent in the hospital. Furthermore, being well enough to be in the comfort of her own home again, also came at an additional cost for expensive medical supplies.

As I am sure many of you can imagine, maybe even yourself have experienced, the financial stress takes its toll. It is a stress I'd like to propose we help alleviate, so as to help free Ryan and Trish to focus their energy on caring for Sissy.

It doesn't take much. Even 10, 20, 30$ goes far when you haven't enough to pay for just the basic of needs. And with PayPal “donation” option it is fast and easy to donate. So maybe you can skip one dinner out, or wait until next paycheck for that new shirt, or perhaps you have a rainy day fund that you wouldn’t mind dipping into? Whatever the case, it goes to a good cause; two great parents just doing their best to care for the needs of their beautiful daughter. Thank you for your generosity.
