About Me It's been a rough year for my 2 kids and I . My husband who I thought was the healthiest man alive was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in June 2011 and passed away on New Year's Day of this year . My son lost his best friend, My daughter lost her hero and I lost the best part of me... there are so many sad days but so many wonderful memories. He was the most kindest, most generous and giving person I have ever known, I think that's why it hurts so much. Sorry this is more about my husband Steve but he was the best part of me. Now I take it one day at a time, looking for a job and help my kids get through this.

Ellen's Plea for Sandy Relief
527 days ago

I live in Long Island NY so I could only speak from what I have seen here. It is total devastation. People having no homes to go back to because they were destroyed, washed away or totally flooded. It's heart breaking that there are still so many people without power, food, coats, or blankets and that not to mention the homes they don't even have to go back to. They have to start all over again....young people,with babies, older people,that don't even know,where to begin. Most importantly for now we need to get food, warm clothes and blankets to these people. Please find it in your heart to help in any way possible. I pray for all the victims of this Hurricane which was followed up by a Nor'Easter just a few days later. Also, we have now had to go back to odd/even days to ration the gasoline situation.....if you can, pay it forward. It will make you feel better then the people you've helped. Thank you.
