I am happy to report that we finally received the money raised for my step dad’s fundraiser, it took LL every bit of 7 days to cash out, but it made it. As promised, below is a full transparency as to how much was cashed out, how much the check was written for and even a happy Papa [Wayne.] We decided to go ahead and write them a check for the amount, vs paying the Gofundme website, for a few reasons. I’ll explain, because Im sure someone will ask. Gofundme takes out a huge % fee on moneys donated to the site, because they to want their money, and it would have taken this amount down a lot. Two, my parents would have waited at least 2 weeks in order to receive these funds, and they honestly needed this like yesterday. I see my parents, every day, so it made more sense to us [myself and Ken], that they receive every penny that was raised and got a hold of it asap, since its needed so bad. Anyone that is caught in a situation like this, should understand, when you need money, you need it now and Im pleased we were able to get them this very fast.
Both my mom and step dad [Wayne], thank you all very much for pulling together and helping someone in need, whom you dont even know. My mom was all smiles and grateful this afternoon when I dropped the check off, and thats really not what we see alot these days. With my step dad now being disabled, her job as a wife, mom and grandma has greatly expanded to being super woman x100,000,000, and Im really humbled that we were apart of something that could make her feel more at ease.
The Gofundme fundraiser is still open, if you wish to donate online you still have a chance. Our inworld tip jar is still rezzed in front of AlterEgo, and will remain there, because every little bit does count.
We are so grateful for your kindness and lending hands,
God Bless you all. ♥

Update on Wayne – He still has about 20 days left on his radiation treatment visits. The procedure has caused his hair to start to fall out, but you all caught him on a good day above, bc this morning he decided to just shave it all off. He said he dont need no hair :) There have been a few complications so far, occasionally his left arm, leg and foot tend to lock up and he isnt able to walk. Though he is quite stubborn, there have been times where he’s needed to be strolled around in a wheel chair to get from point A to B. The drs think that possibly the radiation is making stuff swell in his head, so he’s been put on a double dose of steroids to make all that sorta go down. He is in good spirits, he was happy happy today when I saw him and though this road is no where near over for us, we plan to keep trucking along. Ill keep updates going, since alot of you have IMed me and requested I do so. Thanks again x0x0x0x
