training hard for my 5K to raise money for my sweet friend Liesbeth who suddenly lost her husband.
i forgot to change my running music. All of me from John Legend came on. i broke into tears, but i kept running.
not a pretty sight, but i'm not afraid to show the real pics.
so yeah. that's what running & crying & trying to make a pic looks like.
i'm trying to raise money because things don't look lovely financially for her. she now has to take care of Dennis (and Suzanne) all alone. and Dennis has a life threatening disease called "EB". go check out what it is. it's such a horrible painfull disease. it's so unthinkable that Liesbeth has to manage everything all alone now. she's doing it, she's incredibly strong. last week i visited her again and she looked so devistated. not that i would look any different. but it hit me with a brick how horrible this situation is. how on earth is it possible that she has to suffer so much. i think Karma has got things messed up hugely, and missed a few persons, while dropping a shit load on her.
and just as you think things can't get any worse.... she told me they might have to leave the house. SAY WHAT?! say the freaking what?! how on earth is that even possible. a house that is completely adapted to Dennis' needs. imagine you NEED a special chair lift because you simply can't walk. let alone walk up the stairs. a special bathroom because they need space to change his bandages 3 times a week. he is in a wheelchair, so everything is adapted. and now they are facing losing that house.
imagine. losing your husband in a split second. your soulmate. your rock. the rope that keeps the family together (dennis' beautiful words). than realising you have to take care of your kids all alone, one having a lifethreatening disease. and than finding out you will not be able to live in that house anymore because the bills are simply too high. can you imagine facing that?
would you be able to deal with all that f*cking shit? hell no! this is crazy.
so in my last post you can read how i decided to raise money for her. only if it's just a drop in the ocean... it's the one thing i can do to help out. to reach out to a loving friend.
and if you are able to: please donate. i totally understand if you cannot. i do. but i just keep asking and you have to understand that too. but would you all just do ONE THING for me?
SHARE THIS MESSAGE. this cry for help. on facebook, twitter, instagram, your blog or where ever you can.
work with me. let's raise the money we need to help her support and ohhh how i wish we could find a way to let her stay in that house.
