I am passing this blog post on from Melissa Grant so it will get into more groups.

Please help!

  Fundraising Efforts for David Wilder, close friend to AR Member Jason Crouch

*Breaking news, I AM SELLING 10,000 POINTS TO HELP AR MEMBER JASON CROUCH'S FRIEND..PLEASE READ AND JOIN THE EXCITEMENT OF WATCHING MY POINTS GO BYE BYE  Hurry over to Melissa Grants post and see where her points go!

To some degree we have all fallen on hard times in our slower market. We try to find money saving idea's, lower cost items and ways to save gas, save on groceries. We wonder when things will get back to normal. When business will speed up, where we can capture our next lead. To many of us these are all challenging task's.

But, what about the onewho simply can't help and simply cannot or don't know how to help themselves. The one's who were handed cards in this game of life that they can't play. With the wild joker missing from the deck they have no means to make the hand needed to win let alone get ahead.

I don't know if you all know Jason Crouch, Founder of the Active Rain group Family Ties . I am not sure if you have read about his friend David Wilder ? If you have not you can follow his many links here to read more about David : You can read Jason's latest post here Another update on my friend and my mother-in-law

Update on David and Jackie - The Power of Prayer

Jason has not only been faced with trying to help his mother-in-law but he is also faced with a Dear Friend who has been battling Cancer. David has undergone two bouts with cancer over the past year, both involving his throat and mouth. His tongue was completely removed, along with his vocal chords and larynx.

Jason has given his all in trying to be their both for his family and his friend. He has exhausted himself with his efforts to show great humanity.

I recently spoke with Jason about his friend. Cancer is very close to home with me. My grandfather passed away 5 weeks from his diagnosis of cancer. There was nothing that could be done for him. The cancer had long reached his brain and invaded all the organs needed to live ( it started in his stomach ). That day I lost my best friend and I will never forget it.

David Wilder and his wife Jan are struggling. David physically cannot work. Nor can he speak. His wife is care-taker for her husband and can only work part-time at their small local church. This family has no medical insurance and with every passing day are sinking further and further in debt. The daily routine sometimes consist's of how they will buy food, robbing Peter to pay Paul for medication, food, and other household bills on a small part-time income.

If you have ever been a care-taker for a friend or family member with an illness you are familiar with the greatest need for strength and the will to fight along side a person with such illness/disease. Please lift up as many thoughts and prayers you can for David's wife...Jan Wilder

I have never battled Cancer but I have sat along side my grandfather and many patients with Cancer when I was in the medical field. Their lively-hood is abruptly taken from them. For the man, who was once the head of the household leaves him depressed and often feeling worthless. David NEEDS the will to survive...please lift him up in all of your thoughts and prayers....So, what can we do as a friend, a neighbor. We can pray..we can join in the efforts to fight against Cancer...finding a cure...we can reach out to someone in great need and lift them up, lift their spirits and give them hope.

I have volunteered to purchase materials and make "Friendship Pins" as a fund-raising effort for Jason. Each pin will cost a small amount of $10.00 and ALL PROCEEDS will go directly to David and his wife Jan.

Friendship Pins have been around as long as I can remember. You know the ones you made with pins and beads and passed them around to your "best friends". When I was in school the purpose of your friendship pin was to show how much you cared for someone and appreciated them. When you made a new friend you passed the torch ( your pin ) on to them out of appreciation and respect. Friendship pins are a great torch to pass on to someone when you see a person in need or need to make someone's day.

                                                        

Please purchase your Friendship Pin for David. For the small amount of $10.00. Keep your pin or pass it along to someone else who needs to have a brighter day. Purchasing your Friendship Pin is helping David in his fight against cancer. You can purchase more than 1 pin. If you would rather purchase 1 pin and make a donation to him as well this is all appreciated and will help David and his wife tremendously. If you would like to receive Friendship Pins to place within your office to help with our fund-raising efforts please email me at lissalgrant@yahoo.com  and I will be happy to provide as many as you need to process your request. If you are in Jason's area and could set up a food bank/donation bucket at your office please email me at lissalgrant@yahoo.com  and I will help to coordinate this for you. Of course, if you have idea's or ways to help please email me at lissalgrant@yahoo.com  and I will gladly help coordinate any efforts.

Hi Vanessa,

I'd like to link this post on my website to encourage visitors to my website to send what they can. However, since it's set at "Members Only," it won't work.

Can you post another one meant for the Public and so that I can link it?

I know cancer within arms reach. Ugly and painful to victims, and sorrowful for family and friends.

Thanks, KIM.

Vanessa & Melissa,

I just got back to my office and linked this Blog to my website!

I don't know about the AR blog points thing, but any ActiveRain.com Member can take my 49,015 blog points just to help David Wilder and anyone else with Cancer. It's only a gesture, I know. But, what ever moves people, LET'S Just Do It!  Cancer SUCKS!

In memory of my mother and Mr. Jim Schneider (a friend), kick CANCER's Ass!

My envelope is in the mail today!

Best of Get Well David Wilder, and strength and prayers for Wilder family!

Mr. C. KIM McGuire, N. Padre Island, TX
