Someone in the town of Voluntown should send this story to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition......
they've helped people that are struggling & have lost everything....PLEASE send this story to that show & see what they can do....One person should not have to go thru what Mrs. Girard did.
Just a suggestion...

How very strong this woman is.:( She is a shining example of fortitude in the face of adversity & we could all learn a lesson from her. No matter how bad we think we have it, there are people in this world, in our communities that are suffering horribly ...count your blessings, say a prayer for this woman & help out if you can. Your karma bank will thank you! ;)
