Topic: Need advice on how to accept help from friends
Hi Everyone, we are fortunate to live in a wonderful neighborhood with many supportive friends. Each family has gone out of their way to help us financially, emotionally, and with food since my husband's diagnosis in January. We are deeply humbled by their love and generosity, and they have helped us keep our life as normal as possible for our kids. Now they have asked us if they can have a fundraiser dinner for us. We want to be good receivers, and we know how much they want to help us out, so we said yes. But, of course, we are soooo uncomfortable with people giving us money. We are doing ok despite reduced pay, etc. Though, who knows what other major expense could catch us by surprise? We could use some advice on how to accept/receive this wonderful gift and should we go to the dinner or make other plans?
P.S. My husband is doing well, switched to Folfox two weeks ago, and he is going back to work part-time soon.
