advice and tragedy
One of the members of my crossfit gym has been gone for quite a while. He was expecting / recently had a baby so it didn't seem like a big surprise. It turns out that while his child was being born, his wife had a seizure and they found a large brain tumor. It has since been removed and she is undergoing chemo in a hospital about 5 or 6 hours from home. With the commute, the newborn, etc. etc. they are having some troubles and an appeal has been made through the gym for help. They eat paleo so tonight I'm going to try and make a big freezable jug of chili and some other things for them. I'm trying to think of other ways I can help, though. So far I've been leaning towards offering to clean their home / do laundry / dishes etc. Please, if anyone has any sort of advice or thoughts on ways I could help this family, I'd really appreciate it. I've never suffered through something like this and I just don't know what to do.
