The Valentine Plunge

       For Paulette 


The ALS Association (@alsassociation) tweeted at 1:05 PM on Tue, Nov 24, 2015: $250,000. That's the estimated annual cost for caring for someone with #ALS.  


To learn more about the disease go to:

With that being said, it has been estimated that Paulette's care will be upwards of $200K this year.  In January of 2015 there was a donation website and tricky tray benefit dinner held to help with the mounting medical expenses and also the necessities needed to accommodate her current needs.  Since then the monies raised have been used to pay down medical expenses and  purchase some equipment, but there have been expenses that were not expected.  Because Paulette can no longer get to her second floor bedroom and bathroom an extension was placed on her home for a wheelchair accessible bathroom.  Also the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van in order to get her to doctor appointments as well as the hire of a part-time daily Health AID, which isn’t covered by insurance, was important to help her with her day to day necessities.



Paulette is in need of additional equipment this year that will assist her with her breathing.  We need help paying for a supplemental health insurance plan and payng for her part-time Healthcare AID (Dorothy), There are medical and pharamedical expenses not covered by Insurance, special food, van upkeep, and basic living costs.... etc and hopefully a little room to enjoy her healthier years...


YOU can help in a BIG way this year.  Here are a few ways to help: 


If you have given before, we thank you for your gifts and would ask that you consider once again helping this year.   If you have not, we ask that you think and or pray about giving the most generous gift you can.  In doing so you would be assisting a couple that has helped many people throughout their lives, and if you know them you were likely to have been touched by their life in a positive way.  NOW is a way to bless them back in their time of need.
