Ok, we have finally received word back from the military. Hospice care is not covered. Which means, any home care we provide Ellicia here will be out of our own pocket.

This is going to be expensive. So, reluctantly, and humbly, we'd like to ask those of you who stop by...

Please help. Anything will be appreciated. Ellicia will likely need home care as her mind shuts down. And she wants to be at home, not in a hospital... home, surrounded by our children.

For more information or questions you may have, please contact me through the blog.

Thank you.

I think about you guys a lot, even though I've never met you (and probably never will). I wonder what I would do if put into the same situation, and I hope that I would be able to make the same decisions as you two.
I am humbled.

We'll get the word out. Let us know what else we can do, and thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to help.

Love you guys.

Just heard about you situation on Hugh Hewitt's show and dropped off a small contribution - I wish it could be more.

God bless you and your wife in this difficult time, and thanks for your service to the country I love.

I suppose if she needed breast augmentation that would be covered. God bless you and your family and you all will be in my prayers. Of course I’ll be honored to help financially.
