I met Shane’s Mother, Pam Taylor, and sister Lynda through a business coach I have used to help better both me and my business, Launa Germiquet of Unique Potential. I have very much enjoyed learning from Launa, and like a great networker that she is, she connected me with Pam and Lynda for a visit one Friday. I had already seen Shane’s GoFundMe page but was still stunned to learn about Pam’s son and Lynda’s nephew Shane. I was incredibly moved by our conversation and certainly realized that Pam and others in the family were doing the best they could to raise money for Shane, but soon family and close friends’ financial resources get overextended and they need to look elsewhere for these resources. It didn’t take long to realize that Pam and her family were unable to be a client of mine, so I thought the least I could do is to make this monthly blog for my business about Shane and his family and donate a little money.
I know there are lots of people to practice kindness on, however, if you don’t have anyone who needs your support currently, Shane sure does. I always believe no matter how difficult my life situation gets and how hopeless it feels sometimes, there is someone in a more difficult predicament then me that needs help too. I try and do whatever I can for others given my own financial constraints, and totally understand other people’s financial constraints as well; so I have chosen to give what little I can at the moment, and I ask that you consider helping Shane too if you are in a position to do this as well. Here is a little bit of information about Shane:
Shane Taylor is a talented carpenter who is self employed and has run his own successful contracting company for years. Shane was diagnosed with thyroid cancer which had spread to his leg. It was growing so quickly, from inside the bone, that the Doctor doing the original MRI told him it looked like the bone was moth eaten. Shane has been off work with little money coming in besides what AISH supplies (Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped) and no idea when he will be able to return to work. The stress that comes from being diagnosed with cancer is difficult to imagine let alone Shane has no idea when he will be able to work again. The financial burden of his diagnosis is breathtaking, let alone the long battle with the disease he has ahead of him.
Thanks for considering going to Shane’s GoFundMe page, noted below, and supporting Shane through his Cancer treatment. I would also greatly appreciate you sharing this through your own social media circles too 😊. https://www.gofundme.com/get-shane-taylor-up-and-running
