I’m sure you saw the comments yesterday about Amusing Bunni’s terminal illness. This will be hard, but I’m going to fill you in on the details that Bunni told me, and said I could share with you.
You all know Bunni from her wonderful comments and her blog, Amusing Bunni’s Musings, over there in my sidebar. You may also have noticed that she hasn’t been around much for a while. Bunni has been ill. She’s been feeling very poorly for several months and she checked into the hospital for tests about 2 weeks ago. Bunni received the devastating news the same week as the election: she was diagnosed with inoperable Hepatocellular carcinoma – stage 5 liver cancer. Her diagnosis is terminal and she has been told she has only 3-6 months to live.
There are no words that can express how saddened I am, yet again, to hear such devastating news about another of our blogger family. I can neither imagine how it must feel to receive a diagnosis like that, nor are there words adequate to describe how it feels to hear a dear friend has received this sentence.
Bunni actually sounds like she is taking this better than me, but she is worried about how she will be able to handle her last few months on this earth financially, and how to care for her beloved Little Kittehkins after she’s gone.
Because she can no longer work, Bunni will be terminated from her job and, shortly thereafter, lose her employer provided health care insurance. She’s applying for Social Security Disability and Medicaid, but she still has a mortgage and palliative treatments to pay for without interruption.
I have put a special, exclusive link at the top of my sidebar for donations to her secure, PayPal medical fund. Because she needs the help RIGHT NOW, and there really is no tomorrow, it is the only “Help” link there for now.
Bunni is looking for a loving home for her Kittehkins, preferably in the Chicago area. If you want to adopt Little Kittehkins, please contact Bunni through me at email@example.com.
And while, believe me, I know it’s hard out there right now, Please, if you can, hit the link to HELP BUNNI.
Bunni is looking forward to rejoining her mother and all the family and friends who have gone before her. She asked us not to cry, butt as I explained to her, while there’s no crying in baseball or politics, in real life, tears are plentiful.
To die,—to sleep;—
To sleep: perchance to dream:—ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come…Hamlet
Godspeed Bunny, our prayers are with you. We will all join you on the other side of the gates one day.
