There are many folks all around the world that are hurting right now. Some are facing treatable sicknesses, and for others it is a life and death situation. Social media has brought a lot of this to light and has enabled many miracles to happen by bringing awareness to communities, and then raising the necessary funds and support to help.
Today we have a few folks in Asheville North Carolina that I would like to introduce you to. They are suffering tremendously with the medical issues they are facing and could use our help. Please read and help if you can.
- Rocky Cunningham – for those of you who know this man, he has been an active person in the community, and in the Asheville City Schools as the physical education & health teacher. In early April, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is now raising funds to assist in his medical journey. Please check out Rocky’s GoFundMe Page for more information.
- Katie Janette – we first met her while hanging out with the buskers in downtown Asheville, and have bumped into her on several occasions. In February, she had severe abdominal pain and was told that she had a fibroid (generally non-cancerous tumor) in her uterus. It has since gotten worse and she needs to have it removed. The good news is that she has almost reached her goal for the upcoming surgery. Please see Katie’s GoFundMe Page for more information.
- Kat Williams – last but not least, is Kat Williams, who has been a part of the Asheville community for many years, has blessed many of us with the sound of music in our ears, and has given a piece of herself toward so many causes and non-profit to help others. Now she is reaching out for our help. Kat needs a kidney transplant and has a long journey ahead of her. Please take a look at Kat’s YouCaring Page for more info.
