Alice from Arizona

Retired nurse caring for a blind sister, and autistic brother. My own health and finances are very poor, but I don't really notice as much, as somehow I manage. It would just be a little easier some days if there were a few extra dollars to help us through the day. Situations like this really put life into perspective. It sure would be nice to have a few extra dollars per week for going to a movie, or to the zoo. I don't ask for much, but anything would help. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Goodbye, Alice, Albert, and Isabel.
