We're Halfway There! We're Giving to Allison

Through our CareGifters program, we fund caregiving solutions, one family caregiver at a time, as often as we can.

This month, we're funding solutions to help Allison (@aobrien907) who cares for her husband, Christopher, as they raise their 7-year-old son, Tarl. And, the great news is that we've raised 50% of our goal to send Allison $500.

Christopher suffers from a rare genetic disorder which causes degenerative brain damage. He had a stroke almost eight years ago when Allison was two months pregnant with Tarl, which led to the discovery of this disorder. He is partially paralyzed on the right side of his body and has neurogenic bowel disorder, urinary incontinence, severe chronic pain, dementia, and encephalopathy. Allison is currently a full-time online student at SUNY Empire State college pursuing a degree in Human Resource Management.

Our goal is to send $500 this week to help Allison manager her most pressing concerns. Allison is the 17th family caregiver we've been able to help through our CareGifters program.

You can help by donating via the donation button at the bottom of this post. Your donation is tax deductible as our CareGifters program is part of our non-profit organization, The Center for Family Caregivers. You also can help by purchasing a copy of our latest book, A Caregiving Day, a book of poems. Proceeds from the sale of our eBook and print book will go directly to Allison. You also can purchase a book at the bottom of this post.

Thanks so much for your help!
