Whether it is to pay a phone bill or mortgage payment, we will be there. Whether it be aiding in paying for medical bills deemed "experimental" or due to lack of insurance, or arranging transportation, paying for a room to allow families to remain close during these tough times, we will be there. We will do as many of these things to the best of our ability, we will always be there, and for this we are responsible, for this is our passion, for this is our vision."
