Rip has been fighting liver cancer for the past two years. I have quit work to take care of him at home. The cancer treatment we had last year has kept it dormant so far, but there is no cure. Rip is now on oxygen 24 hrs a day, which has made our electric bill skyrocket. We must raise money or they will disconnect it on Feb. 3rd. The bill is now $356.00. I am also trying to raise money to get my basket business back up, so I can work from home and be close to Rip. If I could just get a few supplies, I could start making some Spring baskets. I have been making gift baskets for about 8 years now. I sell them in our Blairs Market here in Worland, so I already have a good market for them.If I can get one or two shipments down there, they will pay for themselves and I can keep it going. I just need some help getting the first batch of 6 or 8 baskets ready. While getting ready for the Spring and Easter baskets, I make all kinds of custom gift baskets for local orders and some out-of-state orders. It's wonderful, because I can work right here in my office, and stop at any time if Rip needs something or to fix him something to eat.When I was working outside our home, I was constantly worrying whether he was ok, if he was breathing ok, if he was eating anything. I would come home from work and he hadn't eaten what I had fixed for him before I left. He was losing a lot of weight. I knew I had to be here, this is where I belong, by his side taking care of him 24/7. He is everything to me. I can't imagine my life without him.But we have found that with the electric bill so high, the added medicine that the VA doesn't cover, and our travel expenses back and forth to Sheridan to the oncologist, we are in desperate need of financial help.So, I thought I would reach out to anyone who could possibly help. Any help we can get at this point would be wonderful. Time is very precious to us, and we are running out of it. Thank-you all for your love and support.
