Spc. Reid Stanley is a milblogger at A Storm in Afghanistan. He was deployed in Afghanistan last November when his wife, Ellicia was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has since spread to her lungs and
brain. They are now in Germany preparing for compassionate reassignment back to the states where hospice care will be available for Ellicia. It is expensive.
There’s an eBay auction underway for three of Buzz Patterson’s books –autogaphed– the proceeds of which will go to Spc. Reid and his family. Details here.
A SoldiersAngel came up to me after the event in Cleveland last night and clued me in on this brave family and its struggle.
That’s what SoldiersAngels do. Join them.
From Spc. Stanley and Ellicia:
Mr. Hewitt, Thank you… And thank you to your readers. The support has been amazing.
How can we ever thank all of you…?
Reid & Ellicia Stanley
Reid and Ellicia: I am certain when I write that it is a great honor to be able to help you two, and that the prayers and good wishes of every American are with you and your family. Thank you both for your service and your example.
UPDATE: The auction is off to a great start, but please consider a direct donation through the link above. A Rose By Any Other Name has a great pic of this great family.
