As much as this may be a good cause, I don't think that it is appropriate for this site.

Is this your family?

Is this someone in your family or someone you know?
So sad.

Not offended at all.

And hope all goes well with your friend.

This site has always remained free of solicitations, however.

But maybe that has changed.

A coupleof thoughts......

The O'l ( I used to say boy ) person upstairs, says we're all supposed to lend a helping hand when needed, so all you've done is to reach out on behalf of someone else.

Perhaps a particular forum thread should be opened specifically for this kind of topic socialially supported lending of a hand thread?

Long time members and contributors

While we generally don’t allow solicitation, like Motorcycle Mama said, we chose to leave this post as it was posted by a recognized long time member and contributor, and was similar in nature to the one we allowed last year for Gadget_man, who was also a long time member and contributor.

Moving forward we think it would be best for us to consider these on a case by case basis.
If we find they are occurring more frequently then we might consider a designated thread.

Thanks~

thank you all

thank you all for your understanding. i do not try to solicit, and never share anything like that even on social media, but this case is VERY close to me and my family

I posted above as I was worried that this was you or a close family member. I am glad it is not but am so sorry it is a friend.

Our prayers are with you at this time in your life.

...that this is a very wise decision. There are times when the community might want to reach out and help some of our beloved contributors. There are times when we all need help and I think this is one way of helping people should we feel inclined to do so.
