View Full Version : RAK for Sick Step-Father Birthday

06-21-2015, 07:20 PM
My step-father has been sick for over 2 years now. He suffers from Chronic Functional Abdominal Pain, which basically means for him that he has constant pain in his abdomen and thereís no physical reason he should be in pain. As far as we know, he will have this for the rest of his life.

Itís hard for him to sit up for long periods of time. He works mostly at home so he can lay down and it kills him when he has meetings at work because of all the sitting. Driving over a bump in the road hurts, his cat canít sit on his stomach, even sitting at the table and eating dinner can be hard for him. Every night after dinner he promptly lays down.

He has been strong for a long time. He has had many doctors appointments that take hours by car to reach and has to see many specialist. I know he needs a smile. I was really hoping someone(s) would help me with a super short notice RAK.

His birthday is coming up, and I would love to surprise him with many pieces of art (or any other type of small gift). He really enjoys looking at art, and I figured there are many, many talented artists here, some of which would like to help.

If anyone would like to send an ATC (or any other type of art or item) for my step-fatherís birthday, please PM me for my address. Iím going to throw a Dr. Seuss birthday party, incase you anyone needed some inspiration. (I would prefer the package be addressed to me so he doesnít open it before his birthday surprise! :) )

I plan to give him his gifts on July 7th (when we are celebrating) and I hope I have a few items from others to give him. I am aware that this is short notice, but there is no need to rush. Anything late would still be appreciated and loved by him!

*NOTE* If you plan to send anything other than art, please do not send food. My step-father has Celiac Disease and is extremely sensitive to gluten. He could end up in the hospital if we arenít careful!
