We're doing a little better on the GoFundMe page! I am so thankful to those who care enough to donate. They continue to shine during a dark time in my family's life.
Good news and bad news.
Good news is, dad doesn't have one of the two cancers. Bad news, he has one of the two cancers. So it is good in that instead of fighting two, he will be fighting one (although we are waiting for further news regarding testing, but that is the news so far). Along with a blood clot which is the first thing that started the health issue at home. The docs say that if he hadn't come in when he did, he wouldn't have made it. So there is some positive stuff here.
That being said, we can always use more help. I appreciate all who have shared the link and donated, anyone wanting to share this link, please do so! Anywhere you know it can get some attention, especially by those able to help. I know some people would love to help, but they're in dire straights as it is.
Money doesn't fix everything, but it helps a lot. And some people have really helped, some of whom are anon. Heroes! When people help my dad, they are helping an entire household. They are helping a family on the verge of economic collapse, they help keep things going as I try to find additional work in writing.
Never underestimate the power of charity. In the Greek, charity is considered the greatest of love. A giving of the heart for the pure sake of giving. I thank the heroes who have helped, and to those who will. My family thanks you, and appreciates you!
God bless, from the Szewczyk (Sev-check) household!
You want to hate others, have it! Have fun leading your cult. No better than Westboro.
You hate gays, you hate Obama. You claim not to be a racist and yet you posted a racial meme a while back in which I preached at you. Instead of responding, you unfriended me.
Even atheists respond to me no matter how much they hate me. They even keep me on their list. You on the other hand hide. You're not being persecuted, you're being called out. People like Paul Washer are persecuted. But Paul Washer also preaches love, even though he's a tough preacher. I pray for you. Good thing I don't assume people are reprobate, if I did, I wouldn't bother praying for you. Good thing I don't hate you, because I believe hating each other is wrong. I wish you would agree. You could be a good Pastor if you wanted to be. I've seen better from Pastors who have sinned in the church, at least those Pastors were honest, and repented. You need to repent.

"Biographies are but the clothes and buttons of the man. The biography of the man himself cannot be written." ~Mark Twain
I use to be known as Dale Eldon when I submitted to small presses, but now I'm known as Flint Macwood. A new name with a new direction in story telling. I myself have went through an evolution in my life, and I feel the need to let it influence my story-telling. A writer is not happy unless they write what they love.
