Help­ful Neigh­bors

Catron Courier - - News -

By Ruth Han­ra­han

For those of you liv­ing in Pie Town area as well as Datil and Que­mado, fam­ily and friends, I would like to thank you all for the sup­port you have given me. As you may know I’ve been try­ing to deal with my breath­ing prob­lem here at al­most 8,000 feet. When I moved here to Pie Town 16 years ago, life was a lot eas­ier. I didn’t have a breath­ing prob­lem back then. Car­ry­ing a 5 pound O2 tank around all the time gets old quick, es­pe­cially at 82 (holy cow). Thanks to some great friends and neigh­bors, Karen, Joan, and Tony, who with the help of others, put on a fund raiser din­ner and bingo party. My hus­band John started a GoFundMe ac­count which also helped gather enough money to af­ford a new, state-of-theart bat­tery pow­ered INOGEN 1 O2 con­cen­tra­tor. Only 2.5 pounds to deal with, which makes it a lot eas­ier to get around. Thank you all again. I sure can breath a lot eas­ier now.
