    GoFundMe page for Faye Boyer

    As some of you may be aware Faye, Tony Boyer's wife, suffered a critical medical setback while they were in Calgary at the WBC. She is in intensive care and needs to be sent home by medivac service. You can imagine that the costs are spiralling out of control. Make matters worse, their medical insurance does not cover expenses incurred out of country!

    If you can support the cause please visit: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-the-...dical-expenses

    Thank you in anticipation for your support.

    I just checked again. It is free of charge except for the 2.9% and $0.30 per transaction so that they can cover the credit card fees.

    Let me know where you read about the 15% please

    That's okay.

    It is a pretty good setup actually. They do all the collection, appropriation, list all the donors, take the risk of scammers, etc for the credit card fee. One would like to think that the credit card companies could pitch in a not charge but NO, that would be too much for them.

    GoFundMe survives on the tips they get from donors bit I have no idea what their income statement looks like.

    Right below where you enter your donation amount it says thanks for the tip of? Click the dropdown arrow and select other. Then you can make it 0, or a lower value.

    I have suspended the GoFundMe campaign. Sadly, Faye is not going to require medivac transport home (the purpose of this campaign) due to her deteriorating condition which has become terminal.

    All donations will be refunded. Thank you so much for your amazing support to this cause. It is most heart warming.

    Letís remember Faye at her best and how she touched our lives.

    Sadly, Faye passed away this evening. All our wishes and thoughts are with the family.

    Thanks you again for the amazing call to support the cause. It demonstrates the strength of the fellowship amongst friends in our sport. Faye loved the sport and the people she met. It was a huge part of her life.

    Another icon rests.

    I have fond memories of Faye and I touring the camping area at Kelblys in a golf cart.

    RIP sweet lady.
