James Shelton's Thank You Letter to PBA

January 6, 2015

I am very thankful for the assistance that PBA provided for me during my time of need. I cannot imagine what I would have done or what would have happened to me if PBA would not have been there to help me. My family and I cannot begin to express our thanks for the wonderful support that was given to me during the time I needed it most. I am so thankful that I was led to this organization by other members because there is no possible way I would have been able to fight this battle on my own.
