I have already reserved and paid for 600 packages of Honey Bees for Spring of 2019. I drive to Georgia three times in April & May to bring back healthy, fresh bees. Fully mated queens. May 14, 2019.
I am presently fighting 3 types of cancer; Lymphoma, Leukemia and Prostate cancer. The prostate cancer has recently metastasized into my vertebrae (2 locations), 4 ribs and both of my hips. I am on chemo and start more radiation soon. I am unable to pay off my Dr. and hospital bills despite having insurance. Any amount will be appreciated. Thank you!
