"In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us." Flora Edwards
The truth is this world can be a cold, harsh place. All too often we feel alone. All too often we feel abandoned. We turn looking for someone, looking for anyone. We reach out for help and no one is there. We are left to cope, to struggle, to mend alone.
The truth is this world can be a warm and caring place too. All too often we feel alone. All too often we feel abandoned. We turn looking for someone, looking for anyone. We reach out for help and a hand grasps ours pulling us back to safety. Sometimes that hand is a familiar friend. Sometimes that hand is a family member. Many times that hand is a complete stranger.
Most of us can't count the many times we have been helped out by some giving soul that has asked for nothing in return. Now, it's our turn to extend that hand - to pull someone back.
If you're not familiar with Larry Hamm, here's a little info about him (courtesy of Blockhead Radio):
Larry Hamm over at Chelsea Lynn Designs on Artfire is a friend of many in the world of handmade, he is also the voice of The Crazy Train on Blockhead Radio. Larry has a fantastic wife Janet, and an 8 year old son Jacob who live with him in Lansing, NC deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Larry is a friend to everyone and just an all around swell guy. He is most definitely the “shirt off your back” kind of friend. Right now, all of Larry’s friends and Blockhead radio are teaming up to help him out in a tough time.
Larry is a disabled diabetic who currently has lost his health insurance. His medication alone monthly is over $2,000. Larry is not receiving disability, he has not been approved yet. His wife is the only source of income and she doesn’t make enough to cover his medications. Larry’s doctors have given him an outlook of only 18 months to live if he doesn’t receive a $17,000 gastric bypass surgery as soon as possible. Larry and his family need all the help from their family and friends they can get! Jacob and Janet need Larry to hang around here with them as long as he possibly can! All of his friends surely want Larry to stick around too!
As you can see, Larry is in need of some help. The folks over at Blockhead Radio are having a Radiothon and Silent Auction hoping to organize the help Larry so desperately needs. But the only way this is going to work is if we all help out. Here are some ways you can help:
- Donate cash.
- Donate items for the Auction.
- Bid on items at the Auction.
- Spread the Word.
