It's true. I've never seen prayer vigils like the one that has been going on since Buck got sick. At least, not on a non-religious site. And that people are able to share some money when times are so tight just speaks to what a special group this is.

Yes, they can use all the help they can get. When my son was at Stanford Universety waiting for the bone marrow transplant they were paying $4,200.00 per month rent. that was on top of all the other expensess. when he passed she was left with $25,000 on her credit card.

I called the last hospital he was in and asked about flowers. They said they were not allowed in the room, but they try to arrange the flowers outside the rooms so they could be seen. I would guess that would be the same at this next hospital, but don't know for sure. Flowers are nice, but $ will help them much more.

I want to add how amazed and honored I am to be part of this group. People have dug deep into their pockets in a time when money is tight and have been selfless and generous beyond words. I have so much respect for the membership here. All of you are amazing the way you have all pulled together during this horrible crisis. There is just so much love here.

I am trying to remember the time I spent in the ICU, I had a plant buy yea not much room for anything else. We could also think about sending them to her hotel room...
Of course, send money they need for gas, meals, hotel first, but if there was any left over I think some nice flowers with a prayer or gift basket would be good.

I too would like to thank those that have gone far beyond the call of duty for an e-friend/family.

As I expressed with another member, I love this family and feel as though I have known them for years when in reality, we have never met. bad things happen to great people, but it is with a community like this, here at D.C., we can show that the W.W.W. has a heart.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Katie and Buck.

Kate,

I am so sorry to hear about what is going on. I've just said some prayers for Buck.

Stay strong.

Andy

I haven't been on in a few days and really wish I could do more than just good thoughts and prayers. Too well, I know what it's like to watch someone go through something and have no control over it and no way to stop it. You both stay in my thoughts and I hope for a miracle for you.

I cannot help but wonder if CJ being sick has anything to do with Buck's illness or vice versa....
