At Droidrzr.com, many members view this not simply as a forum, but as second family. Members’ post counts speak to the truth of this statement, as well often referring to each other as “sisters/brothers from another mother.” And, it is in this spirit that we wish to extend our support to Bruce, known to the forum as TransmissionTech.

 

In 2007, Bruce's wife, Cherrie, developed a blood clot in her arm; during treatment for this, she developed pneumonia, a bladder infection, and a staph infection requiring her to be

 twice that year for more than nine weeks. Since then, Cherrie has had pneumonia six times and developed

. As if this were not enough, four months ago Cherrie began dialysis to treat Stage 1 renal failure caused by Type I Brittle Diabetes. With the combination of dialysis and chemotherapy, her immune system has been completely compromised. During the renal failure treatment, Cherrie was admitted to the hospital with recurrent staph infections in her peritoneal catheter which has since been removed and she receives hemo dialysis.

 

Most recently, in May of 2013, Cherrie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Philadelphia Chromosome +. Cherrie went through several weeks of chemotherapy which caused Cherrie to go into Stage 4 renal kidney failure. Cherrie did briefly achieve remission for several months, but now her leukemia has resurfaced she has once again started chemotherapy.  

 

Bruce is self-employed and Cherrie is on Medicare.  Medicare does not cover the entirety of their medical expenses. Their hospital debt is over $190,000, and, disgracefully, Cherrie's chemotherapy drugs are not covered or reimbursable. Bruce is Cherrie's primary caregiver, compromising his ability and time to work (Bruce takes Cherrie for dialysis three times per week, in addition to various medical appointments), which further compounds their

We appeal to the Cherrie and Bruce’s friends and family to make any financial

From my G+ post -

I want to say, we've seen people come and go in the threads. Some we know more than others. Some we don't know at all because they hang in the shadows. Bruce has been active for quite a while in the off topic, moot and Bionic threads and in all that time we've only really got bits and pieces of what they've been going thru. He is not one to push his problems on others or to dwell in them. His dedication and love for his wife is so very obvious. Something to envy really. Droidrzr has become a family and as such we seem to laugh together and pain together. Many of us rely felt that this couple deserve the attention that we can provide. I know that we are all in different places in our lives and can only do so much. Sometimes it really is the thought that counts. I know when my wife was bed ridden for many months going thru therapy from an accident that I felt so lifted by a simple "hey how you doing". No matter what you are able to do, I know it will get more than the appreciation that it deserves. Obviously this is not something that's going away over night, while that would be nice, it's just not a reality. So, keep this in mind in the days, weeks and months ahead. I know I will.

As soon as I am able I'll be sending a modest donation on my part.

 

May all the blessings that you, Bruce, are showering on the donators nd the DR family com back to you 100 fold.  Most of us are not the ones that need it, you are the one that needs them right now.

 

I've now found my method to pay JustaGuy's kindness forward.
