A new way to help since the old one didn’t work

Posted: September 3, 2014 in Thoughts on God

I have gotten a lot of people who clicked on the website that I created asking for help, but nobody chose to contribute. When I asked why, I was told that they preferred to be able to pay with credit or debit card. So, I have created a site from gofundme.com which is extremely reliable, and allows you to donate via the internet. I hate to do this again, but could you please repost the link below to your friends so it will make it easier. Please remember that you can give whatever you wish. I had one person donate 100 dollars to the new site, but 10, 20, 50 dollars is also greatly appreciated. Every dollar counts…:) Here’s the link…


And here is the body of the site for the link above, thank you for reposting the link above to make it easier for people to help.



3 years ago, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Lupus. It started attacking my Central Nervous and Autoimmune systems. At the time, we had a beautiful house and everything was great, then the Lupus started forming tumors throughout my body including the brain, lungs, kidneys and liver. Eventually the one in my kidney turned cancerous, and I fought the cancer battle for 6 months, and thanks to the VA (I’m a 6 year USMC Sniper/RECON Veteran), I won the the fight. However, they have now decided that the kidney has to come out, and now the Lupus is plummeting my systems again. My white cell counts are dangerously low, and as of today, (9/2/14), I lost my job.

When we moved to Las Vegas, we had a great job and everything was going well. Shortly after moving here, the company downsized and laid me off forcing me to take a much lower paying job with another company, and leaving us without the income to be able to stay in our house. It is now going on the auction block leaving us without the finances to move, and wondering what will happen to us, and where we’ll go to live. All of this while going through my medical procedures. My Doctor insists that I stay away from stress which will weaken my already depleted immune system, which is almost impossible when you are wondering where you’ll be living tomorrow. In addition to all of this, Carmen is experiencing medical issues as well.

We have gone to Governments, Senators, Congressmen, Churches, and have been turned down by all of them with the exception of a little temporary food. The reason is that technically we still own our house, which leaves us ineligible for government assistance (please don’t get me started) Here is where we need help. Mike has a well-paying job offer in California, but has to move there to get the job, but does not have the means to make the move from Las Vegas (which would include U-Hauls, first and last with deposit, and no pay for a month). We have never been in a spot like this and really feel helpless. Helpless enough to ask others to come to our aid. Believe me when I tell you that this is a place I would never want anyone to be.

I sincerely don’t know what else I can say to everyone other than I have humbled myself to a place I’ve never had to go. If you can find it in your heart to donate, or to even spread the word to you friends, I would be eternally grateful. At this point, all I can do is to appeal to your sense of generosity and understanding. To that, I will close and pray that my friends and strangers can change my life today.

Mike and Carmen Sanderson
