    I will send what I can, money has been real tight with all the lawyer fees, and such, but I do what I can. So Piper is the point man on this one, I will get something your way as soon as possible.
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Here is the scope.

    Shortly after this man quit his job (14 - 15 months ago) to start his own business his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, which has since metastasized to her bones. Every time she gets started on chemo a bone breaks and they have to stop the chemo therapy to repair the bone. In the last several months she has undergone two hip replacements and arm surgery. Her latest surgery was on Thanksgiving Day. This lady has such a kind heart that she just want to apologize for being a burden. They have a ten year old son who is being passed around to family members while his father tries to care for the mother in the hospital. When the mother is not in the hospital it is a full time job caring for her since she is in great pain due to the broken bones and subsequent surgeries.


    I personally canít imagine what this family is going through but Iím sure itís tough. I can say that this manís mother and father have been a great help to them during this time of need.


    Anyway this man would never ask for such help and his pride would try and talk us out of doing this if he knew.


    FishingTx would like to give its members the opportunity to donate to the 2nd annual FishingTx Christmas Fund. All the monies collected will be given to this man and his family. It brings joy to mine and my wife's hearts to help out family and friends, especially if itís unexpected.

    By no means is a donation required by anybody. I understand that some may be very discriminating about who and where they donate. I know I am the same way. All donations will be kept strictly confidential by me. If the donor elects to disclose their donation it is at their discretion. If anybody wishes to know the amount collected I will post.

    Make donations to:
    Donald Piper
    9841 Crane Court
    Conroe, TX 77385

    PS. If anybody is reluctant to donate because they don't know who this person is just PM me and I will privately disclose.
    For question PM me or call me at 281.642.3751.

    Merry Christmas

    I would like to add that most important thing FishingTx members can do is to pray for this family.
