Several of Jim’s friends have written to ask if the Jim Daniels Fund is still active. It is very much so. So many people have done so much that I have hesitated to ask for more. But if you have read Mary’s recent postings, you know that money is tight.
The fund was established almost one year ago to help Mary and Jim with insurance deductibles, non-covered medical costs and living expenses due to Jim’s lost income. Your response has been overwhelming, and has allowed them to pay off two years of very high deductibles (Jim was diagnosed in late 2008) as well as provide some meaningful relief from non-covered medical expenses.
I know that Mary and Jim are very, very grateful to the hundreds of friends that have supported them through this ordeal.
Jim is holding his own, and just by doing so he is beating the odds. He and Mary are waiting patiently for new treatments to emerge. And one will. In the meantime, one way we can help is by trying to make their financial lives a little easier. If you have given in the past, thank you so very much. Please consider doing so again. If you have not made a donation and would like to, your gift would be most welcome.
Checks can be made out to The Jim Daniels Fund and sent to Jim Jaffray, PO Box 193, Blue Hill, ME 04614. Please note that all donations are treated as gifts and are not tax deductible.
