Topic tags/keywords: question

Fellow LJ’s I wanted to say “Thankyou” for your donations to assist a fellow LumberJock, DALLAS who has been evicted from his employment and has a serious heart condition.

The following is from his post to which many of you responded…Again thanks!

“There have been a lot of ups and downs in the last few years for the wife and I.
First I was diagnosed with heart failure and spent a while in the hospital, then they took my wood shop away from me mostly because I had a tendency to fall over for no good reason.

This year I ended up back in the hospital and wasn’t expected to survive. I fooled them! I got up after a few days and walked out…. against medical advice.

Not long ago it was found that my lungs couldn’t transfer enough oxygen to my blood stream which not only makes me exhausted, it has affected my brain somewhat like a stroke does. I have lost a lot of words, can’t think quickly anymore, and at times can’t even put into words what is going on in my brain.

After all this our savings is gone, no more insurance and I’m not eligible for Disability because I haven’t worked in the last 10 years. (I have, but all off the books or out of country).

About 3 weeks ago we were informed that we were being terminated from our job with no reason given.
We were given 6 weeks to leave. The trouble is, we have a whole house full of stuff to move and no where and no way to move it and no money to move it with.

My wife has decided we will head back to the Carolina’s where she grew up.
I started a go fund me account and even though it is embarrassing for me since I have never asked for anything in my life, it is the only way we have to accomplish our goal.

If you can only give a dollar it will help. If you can’t give anything, please give us your prayers and good wishes.

Go Fund Me”

Some of you gave anonymously, again thanks!

Dallas must move soon and he needs whatever you can contribute. The Go Fund Me program does not take PayPal so I used my debit card.

“Paying It Forward” is what it’s all about folks. Any one of us could find ourselves in a similar situation one day.

Thanks for bringing this up Tom.Anyone who has gone through tough times can really appreciate help when the need it.
My son was going through some rough times with a medical problem a couple years ago and LJ members came through like gangbusters,I will never forget their generosity. There are lots of good folks here. I’ve sent my little contribution to help Dallas and i know others have and still will help. I wish Dallas and his wife a good joureny to their new location and hope Dal’s health problems are overcome.

When times are tough the tough get going! I know you and other LJ’s have helped and your support is appreciated. If he received 10 bucks from everyone who reads this it would make a difference.

Dallas is figuring it out as he is a guy who adapts.


Going to go fix something’s a balmy 28 degrees..LOL! Maybe get some time in with the wood?
