First this will be going out to all news stations in the area...
Here are the two people in the story Attached.
Sitting, waiting for the sun to go down and the cool of the night to take over, 2 people sit in a house that is awaiting foreclosure, to pack up their lives and travel across the country from Indiana to Washington state.
Two people who's lives have been full of tragedy, ranging from the above house (belonging to his mother) being foreclosed on, his uncle, Sgt. Gary Henderson of the Shelbyville Police department being killed in the line of duty, his son having a mysterious brain condition that no doctor can solve and his girlfriend being in her tenth year of fighting for her life.
These two people are the founders of the N.O.A. Night Owl Association, a group formed by few that has turned international to almost 600 members. The N.O.A. is a safe haven for many, a family to others, and simply a hang out to more than a few. A group started and maintained on a BDSM website. A "Facebook for kinks" so to say.
A week ago, Ghost (the founding father of the N.O.A.) posted a message to us all that tore at our hearts. A fellow Owl in a position that he could not pull himself out of. He was having to leave the home he was in and move into a hotel with his cancer stricken girlfriend, Starry, and leave his son behind. It broke our hearts.
Within hours, it began. Almost 600 people started pulling together, making donations, and coming up with a plan. They were finding somewhere for them to go, a way for them to get there and the finances to pull it all together. With donations coming from all over the world, from people who have never met face to face, the pay it forward was in full swing.
One kind hearted and amazing owl offered her home out to Ghost and Starry. A place for them to start their lives over and possibly for Starry to get the answers about her condition she was not receiving in Indiana.
Told she was terminal, after 10 years of being treated for several different types of cancer, she is unwilling to accept there is nothing more that can be done. After surviving Cervical cancer, radiation, Chemotherapy, a hysterectomy, Breast Cancer, more Radiation, more Chemotherapy, a breast reconstruction, two tumors (one on her cervical disk is wrapping around her cervical spine and the other attached to her stomach lining), along with 2 more lumps in her right breast... not surviving is not an option. There has got to be more to life for this fighter, than more fighting.
Ghost and Starry leave at 1am on July 31st to start their 2,227 mile trip in the truck that belonged to his uncle, Sgt Gary Henderson. Headed for Washington, with hopes for a better future, dreams of over coming the tragedies, $1300 that was donated by N.O.A members and their families, to a place where everything can finally be different. A place that anyone who knows them, knows, they will figure out how to repay every single owl who donated or helped them a long their journey... and then pay it forward themselves..
This story is of courage,hope,And the love of a family of owls calles The NOA.
