Hi to all!
We hope you've had a blessed Christmas and are preparing for a Happy New Year! As many of you know, my father passed away on November 12, 2015 from his short battle with cancer.

We haven't posted an update in quite some time. In the end weeks there were numerous additional surgeries and procedures that skyrocketed the medical bills. My father didn't have life insurance (and neither does my mother). He had a very small burial policy which was used for his desire to be cremated. Dad, in his last five years was not taking a salary from the church. He was living on social security.

Now, this gets very hard for my mom who is 70 years old (and she didn't approve this message but I don't know what else to do). Social security notified her pretty quickly she wouldn't not receive any monthly benefits for my dad. She received a one time death benefit of $255. Today, 12-28-15, she was also notified that because she is now "single" that her own health insurance premiums are increasing to a level that is shocking and she simply can't afford.

Friends, my mom is in financial turmoil now. I am unemployed and have been looking for work the last many months. I simply can not help my mother. We don't know what to do. I am writing this to ask for your sincere prayers and any wisdom you can share with my mother. If you feel led, you can still donate as well through this http://www.crowdrise.com/kickingcancerfortravis
site and the money will go directly to my mother. I can't name an amount needed at this time. It is more than imaginable.

I sincerely thank you for your heartfelt prayers and guidance for my mother during this most difficult stage in her life losing her life long partner of 45 years.

Thank you all and God bless,

Good evening everyone!
YOU are a tremendous blessing!!!

It's day 7 of my sister's (Kristen Brasell Hutchinson) ‪#‎66celebration‬ week of online giving campaign for my father's (Travis C Brasell) battle against cancer and all the medical cost surrounding it. You have been part of a tremendous week and at the time of this email through all of your combined efforts we have raised just over $3,800. One bit of good news is my mom (Candy Woods Brasell) informed us that medical bills are now starting to be paid down! And, even greater is that this campaign coupled with the previous week donations have helped my parents to meet the threshold of the financial medicare gap needed to get through obtaining all the medicines. The biggest battle now financially is getting the hospital copays paid down.

As the sun starts to go down and you begin to relax for the weekend, would you help us finish strong? Can you share our news and the links below (possibly even forward this email to your close friends)? We are so blessed and thankful for the amazing blessings this week!
