That's how life is, I suppose. Somedays, I feel like we're put into our positions to become experts enough to help someone else. All of my mother's friends, colleagues and local U-town folk are kinda all doing that for our family right now. It's very grounding to experience the support and genuine love that you all have for my mums.
Yesterday I was walking to work and received a phone call from Sherry Annis (Sherry, BTW, totally rocks!) who has taken the lead on setting up a medical fund account at Golden Plains Credit Union on behalf of mom and to assist with her recovery. For hours and locations of all Golden Plains offices in Southwest Kansas, visit this link. Sherry advised me that donations can be made on behalf of anyone who wishes to contribute. Otherwise, should you choose to send a donation via regular mail, following is the address:
Paulette Fort Medical Fund
C/O Golden Plains Credit Union
PO Box 868
Ulysses, KS 67880
Sherry is also spear-heading a silent auction to be held at Golden Plains in Ulysses from April 27th - May 8th. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to my mother's account, so please take a lunch hour and pop over to partake in the auction.
On behalf of mum herself, thank you all.
