She has faced much red tape and little cooperation. She would like her husband to come home now to a fulltime position in the Army National guard and be home to help her under these devastating circumstances. The Government is unresponsive.
In addition to her plight on April 1st, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life fundraiser in Duplin County N.C. asked Mrs. Murray if they could put her child's Photo on canisters to collect money for her, Gina Murray agreed. $849.00 was raised but the funds all went to the American Cancer Society and not to the child. When she spoke to the coordinator of the event Tim Branden he was quoted as saying" it was in her memory not that she would get the money ". the mother's reply she is not deceased. and many friends and neighbors contributed thinking the funds would go to the family.
We need your help to bring some relief to this family.
