It takes a village...

A couple of weeks ago, my son received a text from his best friend. His mom wanted us to come over because she had had a mini-stroke. Of course I questioned the text... why the heck would someone want to have visitors if they weren't feeling well? So, off we went, to do our village duties. Went to Safeway, got a sweet deal on some beautiful flowers and off we went.

It was very clear once we stepped into the house that the text that was sent to my son was far from this family's reality.

The real story is that, in fact she was having mini-strokes, but only after suffering a massive stroke, a secondary stroke and a heart attack. In a period of 2 days. She had just been released, after 5 days in the hospital and 2 days in ICU. The reality is, her 14 year old son found his mom on the bathroom floor and called 911. This family has been changed forever.

This family, a part of our Bennett Valley village... our Monty village... our Trojans village and our Eagles village is in need of our help.

After 10 years of paying her medical premium and never using it, she decided to discontinue her medical just 2 months ago. Between rent and medical, cutting out her medical made sense to fix a short term problem. After not going into work so he could be by his wife's side, he was fired. So here they are, with 4 great kids and no income, they asked their landlord for a one month reprieve, only to be met with a response of "business is business" and need to leave at the end of October if they can't come up with their rent. 

This family doesn't know that I am doing this which is why I am not posting their name. It is the absolute least we could do for them. There is much, much more to their story. Please donate, if you feel led to do so.

Any amount is absolutely appreciated. Thank you all that are in my village...
