Thank you all for contributing  
I will be thanking you individually as well, but wanted to let you all know that I am so appreciating your donations and looking forward to replacing my failing CPAP mask (every night I have to reattach the hose to the face part because it snaps off) and aging hose soon. I haven't even been able to think about that with our budget--it's been difficult just keeping up with my medication copays, even with the occasional samples. There is a list of similar things that I've put off, so being able to get the CPAP stuff out of the way enables me to start saving for those, too. Plus the new version of my nasal pillow CPAP mask is a much better design and won't have that hard piece around the back of my head that hurts me when I sleep. It's the little things...

Then later on I will need to engage an editor to help me with my book proposal. How I wish I were writing a work of fiction where sample chapters would do!

I would have sent emails out before now but I'm just wiped out from the situation with my grandsons and their abusive dad this last weekend. The adrenaline has worn off and now we're all very tired and heart sore.

Hi, I'm Cristina Deptula, a friend of Fran's and I sent a small donation but don't bother making a separate email to thank me, just focus on getting well! But if you're interested, I'm editor-in-chief of Synchronized Chaos Magazine (http://www.synchchaos.com) - we're the international webzine which takes submissions every month and then determines the monthly theme based on what we've received. And we'd love to do an interview with you or print a sample chapter of your memoirs...you may then mention us in your book proposal. And we have a fund through our magazine for resources for writers...so please send your address to cedeptula@sbcglobal.net and we'll send you a book on nonfiction book proposals, or whatever else you think would best help your writing.

Sending you love and strength.

Wow, I've only just had time to glance at Synchronized Chaos and I'm already impressed. I'd be happy to submit a sample chapter and definitely could use a book on nonfiction book proposals. I will be in touch very soon.

Thank you so much!
