Fundraiser....... Come on guys......

OK. I'm gonna run this by you all and see what you guys think...

We have a member of the forum who has just undergone a colon resection, and could really use our help. I'm doing this unknowing to him or his family, and I thought since it'll be awhile before he's back on the forum I would try to gather "our" family together and see if we can help them out... I figure as many members as we have, we could all schuck $20.00 in the pot and it may not cover all of it but it'll sure help out... To keep it quiet I'm asking you to send the funds to me either through M.O. or my Paypal acct... I know what some of you are already thinking and don't even go there.!! One of our brothers is in need of help and I think this is a great idea... PM me or call me 406 431 3265 anytime for more details... This could be the start of a good thing. Who knows, maybe next time one of us will need some help... So come on guys how bout it??

My Paypal is: [email protected]

Ok guys, we pulled in $200.00 last night in just a couple hours. That's awesome. I will mention that he and his wife are "planning" on coming up here as soon as he's well enough to travel. (Hopefully around Thanksgiving). I've started a medical expense acct. for them in their names at my bank. I plan on taking them there to get it when they arrive here, and telling them Merry Christmas from all of us @ 460ford.com. Think how awesome that would be for them. And how good it will make all of us feel to be able to help them...

Thanks to all who have helped so far, and I'll keep you all posted.

I just talked to this member, I will refer to him as L, before I post the results I want everyone to know that I am not trying to pressure anybody into giving, if it is in your heart to give then give, if it is not, then don't. I just want to give an update and an overview of what is going on.

L, had 8 foot of his colon removed, if anyone knows anatomy, I think that is most all of it, then there is the small bowl, he had this done on Tuesday and got his first bite of food today. His life will now be changed, we hope for the better, he was lucky not to have a colostomy (a bag on his side). He sounds really good, in great spirit, and looking forward to getting home.

As Doug stated, he is on disability, but it just started and he has no Medicare or insurance. The sad thing is, if this had of happened 2 months later, he would most likely had Medicare.

That's the update.

David,

I was gonna get a pizza to eat for this evening and tomorrow, but I already had some strawberry jam so I just got a loaf of bread to go with that. It's a tiny price to pay so I could at least contribute my measly ten bucks. I shouldn't be so poor... oh well.
