    Oh No

    My husband of 24 years was diagnosed aug16th,2011 with pancreatic cancer and 4 days later he passed away..he had been suffering from D.I.S.H.disease for over 10 years before this diagnosis.One month prior to finding out about having cancer he,myself and our two young children were evicted from our home and became homeless and moved with the clothing on our backs and our pup"pinky" into a year-round campground.Since Ralph's untimely death I have secured a home for us but my kids will have no Christmas...I have no family left,nor did my husband..I was too late for toys for tots...and only the kids get survivors benefits due to Ralph and I not being "legally"married in the eyes of S.S.I. I receive no funds and have not secured a job as of yet,for I was a stay at home mom and Ralph's caretaker for the past 10 years.It saddens me greatly to see our kids suffering as they are and I am trying desperately to have them have an ok Christmas to help them recoop from all they have lost this past summer...and I didn't know where else to try...Our son..R-E is 10 soon to be 11 after the new year,and our daughter Venus-Gene is 9...any help and/or information on where I can go from here would be much appreciated!!Thank you:)Valarie Miller...[email redacted]..
