How can I Help, is always my question. Well my friends, I've been hit with a hard one, and now I ask you: How Can I Help???? (A message from a friend suffering with ALS was left in my FB Message box Wednesday, July 18, 2012:) "Hi Rita, Pat called and he looked at the central air-conditioner and I need a new one, I told him yes. He is going to put it on Saturday. IDK what I was thinking, I guess it was the heat.....I just wish I could work, I miss working to make money other then this little bit you get on social security disability.......The disease is progressing....... I'm trying to stay strong and to beat this disease and stay possitive. Then stuff like this happens. I don't want to throw in the towel just yet, but I'm getting close to it..... I was wondering if you could ask people if they could donate money for a good cause which is me to get this central air-conditioner...... I know its a lot to ask for and I shouldn't really ask you, but I am at a loss. I also have to go to U of M tommorow and have a procedure done so I won't be home till Friday night sometime. Sorry to bother you with my problems but I really don't have any one to talk to......." How Can I Help. I can't do this alone. I am reaching out for assistance. Will You Help? My Friend is suffering, she: *Has 3 children *Was diagnosed with ALS about 6 months ago *Is a 1979 graduate of Roosevelt HS *Has been experiencing painful muscle cramps and trouble breathing during this incredible heat wave. *Very bad immune system *Low Blood count which makes her very weak and tired. *I haven't seen or spoke to her in 33 years. We only communicate through FB. *She is desperate and IS COUNTING ON ME to help her and her family. Please find it in your heart to "Give" what you can so that when I hand a check to the contractor she will not have to worry. I want her to focus on spending the rest of her life in a positive light sharing only good times with her loved ones around her. This is what she deserves. May God Bless You for Helping a friend in need. Im sure you will be repaid many times over. Thank You from the bottom of my Thankful Heart. <3 Love, Reetz Rita LaRosa Carioti Paypal fee + 5%= $100.00 included onto Donation Goal
