A Love Story.
Earl Jones and Reyna Otero need your help
This is a story of love and hardship
This story began in 2002 when Earl met Reyna on the internet.
Earl is from New Westminster BC, Canada and Reyna is from Butuan City, Phillipines
Their relationship, via Yahoo instant messaging and webcams, grew to the point where they
fell in love. Since that time Reyna has been infinitley loyal. She came to visit Earl almost
everyday (via Yahoo). Earl, who had been retired and on a pension, plus part time work, was
able to support Reyna and her daughter Jonnymae. He supported and paid for Jonnymae's
education until she graduated from nursing school. Every thing was happiness and laughter.
At that time it was their dream that they would sometime meet and continue their relationship
Then, things began to change.
Jonnymae, who was hired right from nursing school to work in Japan. While there she seemed
to disappear, except for a couple of phone calls. About a month later Reyna was summoned to
Manila to help Jonnymae come home. For two weeks Jonnymae was in constant depression.
At which point she commited suicide. No one knows why. There dosen't seem to be any closuer
there. Then Reyna lost two more family young family members. Also a two year old godchild of both
Earl and Reyna died in an accident. Two years ago Earl lost his son.
Sorrow seemed to follow them around.
Then, about two years ago, Earl was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Things began to go down hill.
About eight months ago, Reyna was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Earl tried his best to keep Reyna in treatment to help save her life. But the money he was saving
to go to Butuan City was quickly spent. Now there is no money to help her out. This breaks his heart.
Now, just recently (April 30/2013) Earl has cancer in his throat. Also dark areas in his lungs,
via Xrays. The doctor told Earl, if the dark spots on his lung is cancer,"we won't be able to help you"
How long Earl has to live is anyones guess. But his dream is also dying. Meeting Reyna seems out
of reach. Thats why they need your help...Earl is 79 years old and his pension is not enough.
Earl estimates the cost of his trip to the Philipines and living expenseswhile visting with Reyna
would be $5000, and each and every donation would be gratefully appreciated.
