This person has left the following thank you note:

Thank you so very much for your kind generosity! Your help literally saved the day for our family. We tried so hard to give our son the help he needed and still take care of ourselves, but we just couldn't manage. I told our son what you had done for us, and he was so eager to pay your kindness forward, that he organized a 'polar plunge' in Minnesota with all pledges going to the local cancer society. He can't participate in the plunge, of course, but just organizing it and helping that way provided a wonderful way to thank all those that helped him. Thank you again, we just wanted to let you know that you truly did make a difference. Peggy

Son Had Cancer - Gas Bill Help

My Story:

Our deaf, adult son has been diagnosed with skin cancer. He had to move home for emotional support while going through treatment. He was treated at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, and we had to arrange for his travel to get him there for two surgeries and radiation treatment. We drove him there three times, and flew him there once.

We have depleted our savings, and maxed our credit cards to help both our children. Now we can't afford to pay our gas bill. Our adult daughter is living with us along with her daughter while she finishes college. Thank you in advance for your help.
