A Family Needs Your Help

Hello again! Sorry I've been away from my keyboard for so long. All my efforts needed to be directed toward my school work. Thank you for your patience with me. But, the school year is complete. I'll soon have more time on my hands to reflect on life, the universe, and everything.

However, before we return to our regular schedule, a great need has been brought to my attention thorugh my Knights of Columbus Council. There is a family in dire need of financial support because of a serious health crisis. I offered to publicize the need on their behalf. I'm including the petition below. Please support this family in any way you are able. It's a very sad and desperate situation.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this for financial help for a dear childhood friend of mine, Jennifer. After many, many unfortunate events in my friends life such as a fiancee who was killed in a car accident after an argument while in their 20’s, her brother passing away from Lou Gehrig’s disease last year after a 14 year battle. She was unable to take in her brother’s son because her own husband had been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma - a rare, incurable blood cancer which affects the plasma cells located in the bone marrow 7 years ago, she is now facing her biggest challenge.

Her husband Kev is now at the end of his battle with his disease. Kev has been receiving all kinds of treatments since he was diagnosed 7 years ago but has quickly deteriorated over the last 2 weeks. Jennifer has had to go on Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and since she is 100% commission there is NO money coming in.

Kev does not have life insurance. They have 3 boys. One 10 and twin 8 year olds. The 10 year old and one of the 8 year olds are considered to be on the Autism spectrum although very high functioning.

A group of close friends have established a fund in Kev’s name to help eliminate some of the financial burden associated with an extended illness. I have attached a copy of the letter that was sent out to their neighbors apprising them of Kev’s condition and the fund for your review. If you are so inclined to make a donation, the fund information is also listed below:
Donations can be made to:

“The Kev Tev Fund” at the Central One Federal Credit Union. Checks can be mailed to:
Central One Federal Credit Union
714 Main S
Shrewsbury, Mass 01545

Thank you for you consideration - it is greatly appreciated.

I don't have the letter that is referenced in this request. However, if you need any further information send me an email using the contact from here I'm sure I can get it from the folks who established the fund.
