If I’ve ever met a fighter, it’s Gail. I’ve only been at my current job one year, but in that time I have learned a lot about Gail’s life and her struggles. She’s no wimp. She is devoted to her first family (husband and daughter) and her second family — here where we work. Gail has devoted her life to working with children (and the story behind this is amazing by itself) and there is a palpable change in our atmosphere with her not here. We’re all praying for a full recovery.
Watching this illness attack my friend has revealed to me just how much of a family this place really is. People are stepping up. There’s a weekly schedule to take a meal to Gail and her husband. Some others are signing up to go into her home and help wherever it’s needed. Others are giving what they can financially. It’s amazing to see a group of people come together to support one of their own.
But she still needs help. Times are hard for everyone right now, so you can imagine how it is for someone suddenly inundated with bills from the hospital, for chemotherapy, and the multitude of prescriptions she must now take.

I will be there working the front table and would be delighted if you would take the time out of your afternoon to support this dear lady. Even if you cannot be there, if there is anything about Gail’s story that touches your heart and you would like to help her financially, contact me at email@example.com and I can put you in touch with the appropriate people.
If a monetary gift is not something you can do, please just offer up a prayer for Gail. She needs them desperately and I know I speak for hundreds of co-workers, parents, and students when I say we miss her and want her back!
