Connie McKenzie is a very strong women with a heart of Gold . She has blessed many and been there for a countless number of people in her life. It's her turn , her time to heal and feel the love and know that she matters. More ...

Everyones support  has been amazing ! We are nearly half way to the original goal already. Absolutely brilliant . 

As you know Connie has helped out many people in her life from family, co-workers / friends. She has buried all of her family members with the sole exception of her great nephew.

Thankfully she does have some neighbors and friends who help her out but they are also at an age where they have many of their own medical issues.

I am starting a fund. Basically this fund is going to pay for her food which I am having delivered from a company called Top Chef / Crystal Spoon in Elmsford NY. The reason I choose this company is because they put together a special menu for diabetics, like Connie.

Connie has expressed concern that she doesn't know what to eat and based on all her conditions it becomes quite a challenging task for her to find the right combinations of food. I think this company, with their reasonable prices, will take the guess work out. Connie has dropped down to 166 lbs from 188 lbs in a very short period of time - so her meal plan is critical at this point..

The meal deliveries started 10/14/14 and are ongoing every week.

I hope to put together a fundraiser for Connie in the near future, after her radiation.

All help is appreciated - whether it's helping putting together a fundraiser, sending a donation, or simply reaching out to her to let her know you are thinking of her. And of course prayers are always appreciated.

I also reached out to The American Cancer Society and they will bring her back and forth to her treatments if needed. She is in the zone where volunteers will be available. At the moment her friend Judy will be taking her so it's not needed.

Below is a sample meal plan that she will be receiving weekly with this company. These meals are priced at $9.65 each. The senior price is $8.72 each but I was able to negotiate a price of $8.35 each, delivered personally to her door ($58.45 a week).
