My husband is disabled and is about to be scheduled for two or three new surgeries. We have very limited income, because if I work and earn even a dime, he loses a large part of his medical coverage. I am a freelance writer with two master's degrees. I have completed a novel and am the author of a published book which we are trying to promote. In the meantime, we need camping fees (averaging around $20 a day), payment for our possessions in storage ($125 per month), our car payment ($135 a month), as well as money to repair our RV's systems (water system, a/c, leaking roof), purchase propane and gasoline and perform routine maintenance on our vehicle and our RV.

I am also an intuitive reader and counselor trying to view this as a spiritual journey, and write a blog about our travels and experiences. Our travel right now is limited to places close to Davenport, Iowa so he can keep up with his doctors' appointments, etc.

I am working hard to try to become financially successful as a writer, but it is hard to find the time when we are managing so many other things like basic daily needs. Your donation will help us get through this summer while he recovers from the surgeries, and enable us to travel in short bursts to market my published book.

My husband is a wonderful, funny, warm, kind and ethical man. It kills me to not be able to work and earn enough to provide for us, but I have my own physical issues in addition to the financial "doughnut hole" in which we find ourselves. We have no family or friends that can help with finances and of course, with the foreclosure, our credit is shot. On top of everything, my father died last month unexpectedly and I have been struggling with depression and anxiety due to all the stress.

Please help with even a small donation--it isn't just money you will be providing, it is HOPE. And I will be happy to provide any one of the following services for any donation over $50: resume preparation, brochure design, 10 pages of editing, a basic astrology chart and interpretation, a deck of Psycards and signed copy of my book, wedding and handfasting officiation, or a psychic reading, if you desire.

No matter what you contribute, you will have our deep gratitude and best wishes. God bless you a thousand times over.
