Thanks to all who have donated so far. We have made arrangements for 2 of the 3 grandsons to fly here next week. The third grandson is expecting his first daughter any day, so isn't able to travel at this time. We still need help getting Muriel's two granddaughters here - we're almost at our goal!!
Mom is currently in a private Hospice room at her nursing home. Her disease is progressing, but she's comfortable for the most part. We are so thankful for everyone's prayers & monetary support. Mom's going to see her grandsons for the first time in 9 years & it means the world to her - thank you.

More Info

As my mother, Muriel, faces the last few days of her life, we realize how important family is. Muriel has 5 grandchildren who, unfortunately, all live in other states. They were all planning to visit her this summer, but the disease that has taken hold of Muriel, has decided to end her life now. With only days left to live, our family is scrambling to get to Muriel's side. We are not a wealthy family, but we were able to scrape enough money for two airline tickets. However, we still have 3 more grandchildren that need to get here to say goodbye. Any donation, no matter how small, will help with travel, accommodations & food for our out-of-state family. ***If we receive more donations than we need, the balance will be donated in Muriel's name, to the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration to help search for a cure of this most horrific disease. www.theaftd.org
