Mary I just received a call about Kevin Tripp,  he has turned for the worst and the family has been called in,  his son lives in Fla  and says he doesn’t know if he can get up enough money to make the trip here,  since he has made several trips here already.  Maybe some of the Goldwingers  could help.   We knew when we saw him yesterday he couldn’t go on must longer.  It’s just sad  Thanks for caring and I will update as I know more.

Kevin Tripp, April 20, 2018

As most of you know Kevin Tripp from Chapter D and D-2 has been very sick and been in the hospital for several months, first he was at the VA Hospital in Durham and was transported to Vident Hospital in Greenville and stay there for a few weeks and then transported back to the VA hospital in Durham.  Bobby & I were at the VA Hospital on Monday and Friday on this week, on Monday we were unable to see him because of something they were doing to him but on Friday  I was able to see him for a few minutes and got to see his doctor,  of course  the doctor couldn’t tell me anything expect Kevin has been and still is a very sick man,  when I called his name he did open his eyes and that’s all.  His son lives in Fla and is coming back in town on Monday.  At this time all anyone can do for Kevin is pray. Bobby & Alice Manning, Chapter D


Allyson Lee, April 18, 2018

Hello, This is Corky and I am writing for prayer for Allyson. She will be having her surgery tomorrow and she has been really depressed. This surgery will help the fluid but it has the risk of toxins going in her brain. In her recovery could you send this out so maybe someone will send her some cards or well wishes. My wife has been battling  advanced liver disease for over a year now. Her case has been going on for 5 years but now her body is in a need for a miracle to take over. I can not imagine what she has been going thru. I love my wife and we really need prayer. Thanks for everyone who is already praying for her. I know her Goldwing family has lifted her up. Thank you, Corky Lee

Mary Murdock, April 3, 2018

Good Day Everyone, First thing, Mary & I would like thank everyone for the cards, calls, visits, your friendship, those acts of kindness, and most of all the prays, as she continues to battle ALS. One does not realize the friends they have, until we face “life’s trials”. Update: Mary has completed the clinical trial and we are how awaiting the results as soon all volunteers have completed their portion of the trial. We feel that with all the prays sent up to “Our Lord & Savior”, the blood test before, during, after the trial, the overall slower progression of the disease during the trial, that she did indeed receive the “NR001” drug. We expect to receive the results on the next visit to Duke. Unfortunately this drug is not available on the open market. Since finishing the trial in October we have seem a drop in her energy level and several periods of rapid loss of muscle/mobility. Mary is scheduled for several new trials, one being a concentrated form of coconut flakes,( which has shown great success in Europe), a stem cell trial, one hopefully starting in the next few weeks. Mary now requires someone to be with her nearly all the time, with the girls & I making sure she is assisted when ever needed. Visitors and the grandchildren are a great boost to her spirit.

Mary has given up cooking, cleaning and other things around the house, driving, goes out little, and will be fitted for an electric wheelchair in late March to help her conserve her energy and give back some level of mobility. Of course insurance covers little, same as her breathing machine, Duke Medical and most of her medicine. Finally, the medical & equipment cost has been a drain of our finances, 401k, saving and running up credit cards to meet Mary’s needs. We cannot wait any longer for the governments disability and Medicare help, so the following action has been taken: The daughters & I have put together a donation page at: https://www.givesendgo.com/GDKJ.  Give Send Go is a Christian donation web site that charges only for the transaction, and asks for a donation to cover operating expenses. All donations go directly to cover Mary’s past and future expenses. We ask that you review the web site, let God lead you to donate, and PLEASE, PLEASE share/copy anyone inside or outside GWRRA, others chapters, your church, social media, friends, anyone that will help us get the word out of her need. Last week Mary had her roughest week yet, but has bounced back today. She is up now, so you may want to call her @ the home phone. I know she loves to hear from anyone. Donald L. Murdock, Sandhills Solar & Wind Inc., 194 Cabin Creek Road, Ellerbe, NC  28338 Lastly, Thank You, all for what you have done and continue to pray for Mary’s healing! Vinita, Christy, Brittney, Donald Murdock
