UPDATE:   We are closer now than ever!  92%  Complete, only $400.00 to go!

What do

Aji, Kitsap River, rb137, Patriot Daily News Clearinghouse, Sara R and peregrine kate
all have in common?  

 They are putting their personal time and energy into supporting a longtime kossack with urgent medical and family needs.  The goal is enormous, at least $5000, but there is already at least $4600.00 already committed to helping Tonya, ( known here as tonyahky), and her four children cope with Tonya's impending surgery.

First thing needed is a rec and a comment to keep this little diary visible.
Last thing needed is a few folks to take action and help us raise the final $615.00    UPDATE    final $400.00!!

Aji's diary is here:

"When Your Own Surgery Risks Hurting Your Disabled Child"

Patriot Daily News Clearinghouse's diary is here:

"Paying it Forward for Tonya"

Kitsap River's diary is here:

"Recovering from Abdominal Surgery"

peregrine kate's diary is here:

"Must Mothers Choose Between Their Health and Their Children?"

The details of Tonya's situation are described in detail in the diaries above, but, to cut to the chase, we are still trying to reach a goal of $5000 by the weekend, since it will take a few days to collect from PayPal, cash and wire checks or send money orders directly to Tonya.  We only need $615.00   UPDATE    ONLY  $400.00   more to make goal.
Please visit any of the diaries to get the details for how to send a donation,  and it is very important that you include the words "Contribution for the medical expenses of the family of Tonya Harris".
For those in a hurry, the PayPal address to use is  weckworth (at) earthlink (dot) net.

Money Orders can be sent to Tonya,  Checks to Charles Curtis-Stanley who will cash them and forward them to Tonya as a Money Order. (contact Aji)

Thank you for your kind consideration of Tonya's medical need.  We all thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
