Help Our Warrior Beat Breast Cancer
About a month ago, September 2019, Mom (Terry) was sent to complete a biopsy on a lump she had in her left breast. She didn’t think anything of it as a few years prior she had another procedure that resulted in her having cysts in her breasts. Once the biopsy was completed, we waited patiently for the results. On October 3, 2019, Mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. She will need immediate treatment which is to begin on October 14, 2019. They will be placing a port inside her chest on Tuesday October 8, 2019 which will administer the chemotherapy, following an appointment to meet her Oncologist on Wednesday October 9, 2019 to set forth her health plan.
As expected, medical bills are going to be astronomical as her insurance barely covers her medical needs. So far she has spent roughly $3,000.00 just for the biopsy and follow up appointments which was not covered by insurance. As the bills start coming in, I will be adjusting the amount of help needed. My dad, Louie, my sister, Kim and I will be rotating schedules to make her doctors appointments, follow ups and simply to be by her side during this difficult journey that is before us.
Mom is such an amazing person. She loves cleaning, reading, watching the ID channel and her IPAD. Her neighbors adore her and very often seek her advice. She adores her family, most importantly her grandsons Brandyn (15) and Shawn (9). The highlight to her daily routine is her dog, Brooklyn. Anyone who knows Terry, knows Brooklyn is her best friend. Some of her family members have dubbed her ‘Terry Tuna’ because at one point she had an obsession with Tuna and she offered a tuna sandwich to anyone who visited her but to my sister dad and I, she is mom, she is our sunshine on a rainy day, she is our mentor, she is our savior.
Losing our mother/wife/grandma/sister/daughter is not an option however, we desperately need your help. Any amount donated helps.
Thank you so much! We appreciate all of our donors.
We Lost Everything
Three years ago my family lost everything! Due to family illnesses and losing a 20 year long job, over the past three we lost our home, cars, furniture, and basically everything besides a few items of clothing. I have tried finding a job in my previous field to no avail and had to go back to school to start a new career. Now I am graduated and ready to start getting our life back. However, we need your help. Renting and house and furnishing it, in addition to buying the small yet expensive things you don’t think about like stocking a kitchen is simply too much. Unless we get help we may not ever be able to afford these “startup” costs. Right now we are all squeezed into one room with a small fridge and a hot plate to make what we can for the kids. Your kindness will be appreciated. May God bless you for reading my story and considering helping us.
Bahamas Relief – DJ’s School Fund
DJ and his mom Nelly are from Freeport, Bahamas . They rode out Dorian with their family by seeking shelter on the 2nd floor of their neighbors townhouse. Over 10 feet of storm surge destroyed the interior of their home. DJ and Nelly will be staying with us in Palm Beach County for the next several months as our community helps piece their family and home back together. And, Nelly is pregnant too!
DJ now has a Florida home address and qualifies for VPK. He has the opportunity to attend a Palm Beach County charter school M-F 7:30am-6pm. This is a huge opportunity for DJ to re-establish structure and continue with his education. DJ’s mom is 5 months pregnant and high-risk so she needs to be on bed rest to help the baby grow. This is a tremendous opportunity to make a lifelong impact on mom, baby and DJ!
DJ’s monthly school tuition is $400. We are asking for your help to donate 6-months of school tuition and uniforms. All overflow will go directly to helping DJ’s family rebuild their life in Freeport.
Give and Share
We are grateful and thank you so much for participating in this very tangible opportunity to impact the lives and future of a sweet Bahamian evacuee family. Please consider giving if you’re able. Sharing this fundraiser is highly appreciated and welcomed!
DJ is ALL smiles 🙂
6 Month Old Puppy Emergency Surgery
I am a college Senior at FAU. I have the most amazing puppy, Hank! Hank is my first dog ever. I rescued him from Tri-County animal shelter in boca raton in May. He is an amazing puppy, doesn’t chew things up, sleeps all night, etc. However, he doesn’t have the typical puppy energy. Recently he was diagnosed with elbow dysplasia in both elbows and is in need of surgery apap. His case is so extreme that he has fractured both elbows as well. We caught it early so surgery is an option to remove the ulna in both elbows. The surgery is only available for puppies who are still growing. After their growth plates close the surgery isn’t an option and permanent. The surgery is about $5,500 (I don’t have that). We want to give our boy the best life he can possibly have. He has done so much for us and we want to do the same for him. Please consider helping us out and saving our boy. Is there anything you guys can do to get our story out?
Palm Beach Teachers Daughter Fighting Leukemia
An elementary teacher in palm beach county is dealing with extraordinary circumstances. She is a single mom and her daughter is battling the last stage of leukemia. Teachers have set up a page for her to help with medical expenses that insurance does not cover. As a teacher her salary definitely doesn’t cover all the out of pocket medical expenses and the outcome is not looking well so we are trying to ensure she has enough for a funeral when needed. This teacher still comes to work everyday to be there for her students and make sure they are getting the best education possible. The link to the page with the teacher’s story is below. She is a very private person so she would like to keep her name secure but the page explains all she has been going through.
Chris’ Motorcycle Accident
I was recently in a horrible motorcycle accident where I was hit and run over and dragged and trapped under the vehicle that hit me. I do not have medical insurance and the medical bills are astronomical and I fear I will not be able to afford the physical therapy and surgeries that I’ll need in the future still. Please and help is appreciated. Thank you

Help a Family get a Place to Live
For the sake of privacy, we will not be revealing any names or too many details; only what is necessary. We hope you understand and still see the urgency of the situation.
Hi, my name is Deuselena Nandelstadt. I have recently become aware of a family friend who is in great need of a home. His two girls are sleeping in a tent in the backyard of a relative’s house and since work is hard to come across at this time in his particular field, saving money for a house isn’t necessarily realistic, and we want to get them in a place as soon as possible. One of his girls is in her last year of high school and is preparing to go to college, and the other has just started middle school.
They’re both going through very big transitions in their life and it’s important for them to have a stable home with some sense of security. They’re amazing girls. Their hard-working spirit has remained through so many financial hardships and deaths in the family. Before, there used to be a full household coming together to contribute to rent and bills, but now it’s only a father trying to provide for his daughters. Between paying off debts, funeral costs, and lack of work, the situation has truly become dire for this family.
This is where I, along with several other lovely people, have decided to step in. We have decided to start a GoFundMe in efforts to raise enough money to buy this family a trailer. A gift like this will give this family a safe place to study, eat, sleep, and call their own. Anything that you donate is dearly appreciated, and you have my gratitude for even taking the time to read our story. Please help us help this family. We want these girls to have every chance at success and a happy life-something that is so much easier to achieve with a place to call home.
Preparing for final expenses
This is for a friend of mine. Her father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, and at first he was getting better with medicine and chemo, and then he took a turn for the worst. He lost his battle last night. The family is devastated because it happened out of nowhere and they need help with medical expenses and final burial expenses. I was hoping you guys could post it on KVJ Cares for her so they can get a little bit of the help they need.
Greyson’s fight against leukemia
Today is Greyson’s 3rd birthday and the start of his chemo treatments. Last week we received the heartbreaking news that Greyson has leukemia. Please consider making a donation of any size so we can at least help relieve the financial stress that this illness has put on his parents. We are all optimistic that Greyson will pull through this but he and his parents have a long road to go. #TeamGreyson
PBSO Officer- Jimmy Busa Killed In Car Accident
Bruces Memorial Service
My father passed almost a month ago due to complications from lung cancer. He is survived by his widow Sarah, three children and three step children. Unfortunately, he (and he rest of us) we’re not prepared to see him go. He lived in Key West, where everything seems to cost more. I am asking for help to supplement his memorial. He will be cremated and put to rest in the Bay. Thank you to Sunset Sail for providing a boat ❤️. We still need help for the cremation as well has the gathering after we spread his ashes. Any and all help is extremely appreciated. Thank you all your help.
The Payton Family Recovery Fund
Holiday weekend turns to tragedy as they stood in the front yard and watched many years of memories, heirlooms, and hard work go up in flames. The Payton had to watch as everything they owned burned into the night. We thank God that everyone got out, and no one was injured. But all of their belongings where lost to the fire.
Now this big family: Ryan & Tara (Mom & Dad), Chrys 13, Shay 9, Callie 4, Sean 1, Aunt Ally, and her 2 sons Tyler 10, and Eric 8, all displaced and in need. This family needs a new place to live, new clothes, shoes, furniture, beds and sheets, dishes, food, water, you name it. At this point every penny counts. Please share what you can and keep them in your prayers. Thank you in advance to everyone that can help. Thank you being the hands and feet of God and Helping this family in a time of need.

Special Needs Garden Project
I am a high school special education teacher. I teach math, science, and health/PE. I am hoping to create an indoor garden in my classroom for my very special students! A garden can prove to be educational and fun for all subjects I teach. Creating a classroom garden will provide my students with the opportunity to learn about various science topics such as the water cycle and plants, as well as healthy eating and responsibility. A classroom garden will give my students a sense of pride and satisfaction when they watch a seed grow into a beautiful plant that can produce food!
Working at a Title I school means that many of my students face barriers to their success, regardless of a disability. The money raised will be used towards the equipment necessary to create an indoor garden, such as grow lights and tools, as well as supplies needed to upkeep the garden’s plants. This year long project will prove to be both engaging and educational! Thank you for any contribution!
Getting Sarah to her family
My lovely fiancée moved to Florida from Michigan for me. And now we are having a baby! We have been saving our spare money to Rent a van and take a trip north after the baby is born during her maternity leave… but surprise surprise-babies are expensive! She’s also high risk so the doctors said our son will be here in 1-6 weeks (instead of 9). There’s no way we can raise money in time because we still need things for the baby. I had heard of this site and thought I’d give it a try and maybe surprise her!

University of Florida student fighting unusual and potentially deadly battle
Life took an unexpected turn for the Gordon family.
“The easiest way to describe it is a nightmare that we can’t wake up from,” Todd Gordon, Brandon Gordon’s father, said.
22-year-old Brandon Gordon was diagnosed with NUT Midline Carcinoma, an extremely rare and aggressive cancer.
“There’s very few in the United States annually some figures are 40/50 annually I’ve seen upwards of 90 but a very unusual cancer diagnosis,”North Florida Regional Medical Center Director of Oncology Mary Piaza said.
Brandon, or as his peers call him “bear”, was a very active person, a soccer player who was just accepted to his dream school, The University of Florida.
“He’s such a big guy hes 6’4 someone gave him the nickname bear and it just stuck,” Todd Gordon said.
Brandon is also known for his kind heart and high spirit. His parents said he is one the kindest gentlest people you could ever meet.
“I think we did a great job with him. He takes a lot after his mother, very caring individual will do anything for anybody,” Gordon said.
Now Brandon is asking the community to do*something for him. His parents set up a GoFundMe page, to help Brandon in the battle of his life.
“We are staying positive, Brandon is staying positive,” Gordon said. “We have had outreach from thousands of people that we know and don’t even know… we’ve gotten prayers from all over the country and it’s just fantastic to know there are so many caring people out there,” he said.
Although the hospital has been his home for nearly 2 months, Brandon is working hard to regain his strength so he can continue his fight as an outpatient back in his home town in West Palm Beach.
His family said the support Brandon has received from hospital staff, friends and even strangers has been truly amazing.
“Comments people have made about him and the kind of person he is, as parents we’ve always known that but to hear people affirm that… it’s just been incredible,” Gordon said.
As Brandon gears up for his second round of Chemotherapy, his parents aren’t just asking for donations, they are asking for prayers for a miracle.
To donate, visit the GoFundMe page HERE. The family said any donation is helpful.

My son and his two heart surgeries
Hello my name is Sheila Fote and my son Travis is a commercial fisherman recently married and father to a beautiful baby girl Amelia Rose. My son has been going through some very difficult medical issues this past year Begining last January. I got a phone call from my daughter in law she tells me Travis is being rushed to the hospital with chest pains and doesn’t look good at all. After arriving I saw my son and he was in terrible pain and his condition did not look good the doctors could not find what was wrong. Test after test were coming back with no answers. As they were drawing up his discharge papers the ER nurse kept at the doctors to look at him again. After a cardiologist ran another test he found that Travis had an aortic aneurysm had dissected and ruptured which warranted emergency surgery. After 7 hours and 3 very close calls the surgical team saved his life. He had a lengthy recovery time which basically ended his fishing season. After struggling through the summer working and getting his boat ready for this up coming season he found out he needed to go back in for yet another open heart surgery this time to replace his aortic valve.

Thank you for your time,
Jessica’s Medical Fund
I am a thirty-seven year old mother of one incredible nine year old boy. His Father and I were not able to make our relationship work, however, we still live together. Before our son was born, we made a promise to each other that no matter what happened between us we would always strive to give our son 24/7 access to us both. In addition, Lenny (Father) is disabled and does not have the ability to financially support himself.
If I become ill to the point of not being able to work or if something happens to me, my whole family will fall apart. I cannot allow that to happen to my son, which is the only reason I am swallowing my pride and reaching out like this. Permanently repairing everything is going cost around $30,000. I am asking for $5,000 of that just to get the most dangerous part of the situation taken care of before it creates a more serious issue and to buy myself some more time to save for the rest.
I’m a local who attended Jupiter El, Jupiter Middle, and Jupiter High. I went on to receive my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Elementary Education to make a difference in the community I grew up in. I now teach Kindergarten at a Jupiter school and am in need of help during this challenging first year. I love my five-year-old kiddos, but they are full of energy and wiggles. I started a project on DonorsChoose to get some research-backed wobble chairs and fidget toys for my classroom. I am just $159 away from making a difference in my classroom. Can you help spread the word? I hate asking for money, but I’m in a bind and had nowhere else to turn.

People can also give to my classroom for general use.
Thank you for your help!
I wanted to see if you could help a dear friend and his baby Lola. Lola has just been diagnosed with a fatal disease known as Krabbe Disease. Only 3 states in the US require testing for this rare but fatal disease at birth and if tested, baby Lola would have a different fate ahead of what is left of her precious life.
We need our local community to come together for this in a big way!
Please do what you can to help baby Lola and help us to prevent future families from experiencing the affects of this preventable disease.

I teach children with autism at Connections Education Center and we are looking for support to purchase some bowling equipment.

If you would like to donate any denomination you can do so at: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/bowling-for-autism/2173943/

I applied for more than 300 jobs. But everyone is only wanting to pay 8.50 to 9.50 hr and only 20/25 hrs week what adult can live with that. I got a job with Nabisco as a merchandiser it is $13 hr but also part time but once I prove myself I’m sure I will be able to get Full Time.This job requires me to drive to different grocery stores and without a car I will be unemployed again. So I can sleep in my car until i save the money for a deposit and move in cost of a place. I have work hard all my life no government assistance often working two jobs to take care of my kids. I lost my rental home cause i couldn’t afford to pay I owe 2 months rent $1850 but good landlord didn’t file eviction on me just told me I needed to turn over the house.
The bank is trying to repo my car because i’m behind two payments and they don’t offer deferments or loan
modifications on auto loans. Thanks Community First Credit union… I have been hiding out in my car cause when they take it I will be homeless with all my stuff.
I started a gofundme page. Please ask viewers to help. If i can get a hand up in life I will pay it forward in the near future.
