CAN YOU HELP?
A Friend of Meadowood Needs Our Help
Date posted: 01/14/16
Our long-time customers and friends, Ken and Carol Schira, are facing some of the most difficult things we can experience. Carol was diagnosed in December with Stage IV Cancer. Since the diagnosis, the cancer has progressed and Ken is preparing to say goodbye to his wife of many years. Because she and Ken have pursued ministry through their faith over accumulating material wealth, their income and insurance coverage are both modest. He will be facing the mounting medical and eventual funeral expenses on top of losing his partner. A thoughtful soul has created a GoFundMe Account for Ken and Carol. If you can afford to contribute, you will be able to help two very gentle and decent people have a little more peace during the last days that they share. The Account is at GoFundMe Carol Schira
