It’s been a long time since I experienced a personal miracle, so I thought I’d share this one with my Pinecam friends.

For years I’ve been taking care of my wife who is a Leukemia cancer survivor.

In march I took a fall and landed directly on my face, causing a brain hemorrhage that put me in the hospital for 2 ½ weeks.

When I came out I was suffering from severe anemia, and as my health took a steady decline, our financial situation went on a downward spiral.

To make matters worse, while I was in the Hospital, someone hacked our email and hijacked our financial information, putting a severe strain on our situation.

Fortunately I have a loving daughter who came up and took charge by engaging Medicare, a visiting nurse service, a physical therapist and home health care to help us out.

And then on Friday the miracle occurred.
Our refrigerator and ice box was totally empty, but someone we didn’t know showed up at the door from Meals on Wheels with 4 boxes of frozen food, 2 boxes of perishable goods, and two bags of fresh fruit.

This was a total surprise and reinforced my opinion as to the compassion and wonderful nature of our mountain community.

I want to take this moment to express my appreciation, and am now feeling a lot more positive about making a full recovery.

Also, I’d like to see if there is anyone out there who could donate a small freezer to help us store all this wonderful food.

Thank you to our wonderful Pinecam community.

So happy for you! Wish I had a freezer to give you. Do you know about the food pantry at the Mountain Resource Center in Conifer? They are wonderful. They're not open on the weekends, but you could call Monday for more info. Their number is 303-838-7552. Also, if you're in Jefferson County, and depending on your age, you might be able to receive Meals On Wheels on a regular basis. The Seniors' Resource Center runs the MOW program - their # is 303-674-2843. Is there anything else you need?

There is also a 5.0 cubit foot freezer for sale. If you still need one, we would be happy to secure it for you: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=212018

Regardless of where you get one, Stecat can transport it in his work truck that has an auto-lift tailgate.

Thank you everyone for your words of support.
They mean so much to both of us.
My daughter showed up today with a nice little freezer that fits well in our garage, and we managed to load it with a lot of the food.
Love this community.
