A foreclosure story and a chance to help
It's gut wrenching to hear all the sad stories that are playing out daily these days due to hard economic times. Just came across a story of a guy, Mark Ninmag, from Virginia who lost his job about 18 months ago and is now facing foreclosure while having to take care of his wife who is suffering with colon cancer.
First, Ninmag was laid off from his job of 18 years. He takes a new job. He then finds out his wife has colon cancer that has spread to her liver.

He gives up his new job to take care of her and their two children.

"I just don't have a heart to tell them, to explain that their mother may not make it," Ninmag says.

But because Ninmag isn't working, the mortgage isn't getting paid, and his wife's work benefits are just about depleted.

The family in Herndon could lose its home to foreclosure. Ninmag has already received a second foreclosure notice.

"At the same time losing my job, losing the house, losing my wife, it's hard," he says.
While the governments around the world will always find money for war, to bail out AIGs, FannieMaes, FreddieMacs etc of these world, chances are ordinary folks like Ninmag won't see much help from government. If any one wants to make any donation, Mark Ninmag's contact info is provided below as well as listed in the article link provided at the end of this post. Of course, even if donation is not possible, a prayer for the family will help.
If you'd like to help the Ninmag family, send donations in care of the Valarkon Mark Ninmag family to the following address:

Wat Yarnna Rangsee Buddhist Monastery
c/o Valarkon Mark Ninmag Family
21950 Shaw Rd.
Sterling, VA 20164
