    To all that can help......(please read)

    Post  HOLLABACK on Sat Oct 13, 2012 6:45 am

    Just recently found out our friend and Member Corey (Administrator for hounds of Maine) Aunt is battle'n cancer and we're looking to help everyway we can! They are looking for a recliner chair that will help lift her to stand.....This is a time where we really need to pull our resourses together and find a chair....
    We've all been affected by cancer in one way or another,and know the toll it pays on the family....If anyone has any leeds on a chair or where to locate one please let us know! Soon as possible.....
    I would also like to schedual a work day to help Corey and his family out doing whatever is needed......We all know that proud folks dont ask for anything even when they need help,so we're not going to wait for them to ask......I will be talking with Corey tomorrow and find out a bit more what we can do to help during this time.....
    If you can help out in anyway please let us know.....The chair is pretty important right now so please feel free to post any info what,where,and when.......Thank-you!

    I will keep my eyes and ears open for a chair..I don't know of one right now but I will ask around! My family has also been there and battled cancer, my father specifically! It's a hard time for everyone and any help that can be offered is great! I will keep in touch about a work day..anything else I can do to help just let me know! Good luck w/ everything Corey and I will be prayin'!!

    I did do some research on the recliner chair lifts last night and also found a insert that make a regular recliner operate in the same manner....I'll try today to get ahold of Corey and see exactly what would work best and we'll go from there.....

    Marie,
    Coey found a chair that they are picking up tomorrow,so that part is taken care of.....He is going over tonight to visit and will get back to me with what can be done to help out.....Thank-you for being so eager to help! I see 33 people looked at the thread and never bothered to say anything at all.....Very disapointing to see....This topic might not be in our mission statement but surely has moral issues that everyone should be a part of.....

    words cant describe how thankful I and my family are for this. its been a long few days but they have gotten her situated. they contacted hospice i believe and i found her a chair that were picking up today. i wasnt able to make it over there last night. didnt get done at the house till late, but am headed over there today with the chair. they have beef and pig critters but it only takes 20 minutes to do the c hores, there wood is in, and everything is ready for winter over there. so im not sure what can be done yet, but im on the case. bill,ill call you as soon as i find something out, and if you can think of anything, it could def be a possibility. again, i cant say thank you enough!!
