MEET THE BURKHART FAMILY

Dolly and Bill Burkhart of Douglassville, PA were just like any normal American grandparents. They worked hard their entire lives, raised an amazing family and saved for retirement. Bill was also a Veteran. In September of 2013, Bill tripped and fell, breaking his neck and severely damaging his spinal cord. He was paralyzed from the chest down with a number of other medical ailments and required 24-hour-a-day care provided mostly by Dolly and his daughters.

We are deeply saddened to report that Bill passed away on May 6, 2015 due to complications of his condition. Our hearts go out to the entire Burkhart family during this difficult time.

Homers For Hope was able to pay for: 5 months of mortgage payments, 1 month of health insurance payments, 4 months of life insurance payments and one annual car insurance payment.
