Gary’s Life

Three years ago Gary found he had stage 4 colon cancer. He had to quit work and hasn’t worked for 2 years. The cancer treatment depleted their savings, their 401K and they had to declare bankruptcy to keep him in treatment. They lost their insurance due to his loss of a job.  There are multiple, major household issues because they can’t afford to maintain the house. Last spring they had a leak in the roof that almost collapsed the living room ceiling. The roof shingles are t-lock which makes the roof uninsurable. They cannot afford a new one. They a friend patch the leak for a temporary fix. These people are our wonderful neighbors and have tried to be strong and independent. Gary is still on chemo . This seems to be the last one available for him. It would be such a relief for them at such a stressful time.

The roof is old t-lock shingles. I am guessing 20 years at least.  I have included a picture of the roof from out house, but could not get a picture from the front where the leak was around the chimney. They have it temporarily patched, but there is no guarantee how long it will last. Especially with the rains we have been having this year.
