“The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men..”

Knowing that my health history of epilepsy, lupus, Sjogren’s Syndrome, fibromyalgia and several blood disorders was unpredictable, we planned our financial future and revised it with our financial planner periodically. Unfortunately, medical bills for those conditions weren’t always covered by insurance and our plans began to unravel. They went fully awry with Rey’s unemployment for more than 3 years in a row and our OUT-OF-POCKET (unreimbursed) medical expenses averaged $24,000/year. That exhausted our savings. Can you can help us help ourselves!

With no savings, we had no choice but to file a bankruptcy claim last May. Other attempts we made to ‘plug the dyke,’ or ‘stop the hemorrhaging’ failed. To help get back on our feet, we established a medical fundraiser at: Give Forward.com. Our specific site is  Each page gives a lot more detail about our fundraiser (goals, status, why and history) A check can also be mailed by contacting anowlin7@gmail.com

The economy is looking better and we have not given up hope hope; yes, our plans did go awry in spite of all the attempts we made, can you help us get back on our feet. By making a donation at our page which describes our fundraiser and has photos and videos or Rey and me you’ll be helping us to start over and for that we’re forever grateful!

Both Rey and I thank you very much for your donation; God Bless!  Annie
