Kathleen Musser recently became very ill, needing a major operation on November 23rd in Baltimore. She lost her husband of almost 23 years just this last January after a brutal battle with cancer. Needless to say, life since has been very challenging for her and her three children. Before her husband's death, Kathleen was a stay-at-home homeschooling mom who maintained her family's homestead. Since Robert's passing, she found herself working part-time in need of childcare during her hours at work. She has been fortunate to be able to continue homeschooling, but with the hours at work, her schedule has become grueling at times.
Since she became ill three weeks ago, she has been unable to work which puts pressure on the family's income. Additionally, she will be unable to return to work for several weeks while she recovers from surgery and undergoes post-op treatment for her illness. Further, because of her part-time status, she does not have paid leave from her job. As you can see the need is great, but if we all join together as the hands and feet of Jesus, we can quickly see their needs fulfilled.
I have known Kathleen for five years now, and in that time, she has become my closest friend. The longer we know each other, the more things we realize we have in common. There are few people in my life I admire more than her. Throughout her husband's cancer battle, she showed amazing fortitude and faithfulness, remaining at his side every step of the way. She supported him mentally, emotionally, and physically through every up and down while still managing to juggle her duties to her children, her family, her church, her homeschool co-op students, her homestead, her friends, as well as other obligations. Our mutual friends hold her in high esteem because of her dedication to everything she puts her hand to. There is no doubt in my mind that on some glorious day she will hear the words, “My good and faithful servant….”
My heart is to see Kathleen and her kids receive support as faithfully as she has given it to others. I know many other people feel the same way, which is why I am organizing this campaign. I want as many people as possible to be able to love her through this. Kathleen has never been one to sit idle when there is something to be done, and with homeschooling three kids, there is always something to be done. Please consider donating to this amazing and deserving family in their time of need. Thank you all for your consideration, for sharing this campaing, and for your prayers.
