6 Months Later: Update
June 18, 2016

Hi everyone! I know this is long overdue but I finally have a significant update for you all. Dad is doing a little less than okay at this point. See More

THE STORY:

*update: thank you all for helping out! Though Christmas is over, I will keep the page open, and all funds are being transfered into a fund for dad's care*

This Christmas, we want to give my mom the gift of time, peace of mind, help, and sleep.

By creating this fundraiser we hope to gather funds to hire a caregiver to assist my parents a couple nights a month, (or a couple nights a week depending on how much we raise), to come and tend to dad, letting my mom get a full night's sleep. We cannot believe she's still functioning on as little sleep as she gets when tending to dad 4-5 times per night. It's incredibly unhealthy for the both of them.

Now that his speech is almost completely deteriorated and he sleeps with a breathing aid, the need for attentive care is even more great. We are all in disbelief that my mom has made it this far using only the 14 hours per week of care provided by the VA. We have LONG surpassed the time for getting her more assistance. This fundraiser will provide tremendous relief for her, and give dad the vigilant care he needs until Gabby can move home after graduation.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your generosity and compassion. Our family would not have made it this far without the support and kindness from all of the beautiful friends, family, and strangers who have reached out and helped us.

All my love,

Gabby
