My Opa

My opa is 89 years old. He was born in Yugoslavia, but his family is of German decent; “Opa” stands for grandpa in German. My opa has prostate cancer, with his loss of appetite; He is 110 pounds. It is really hard for him to eat, but I try my very hardest to push him, to eat his protein and vegetables! Today, he is in a nursing home, not doing so well. There is a small chance for him to live only a month longer. My oma died when I was only 2 years old from a failing heart, and we are afraid that will happen with my opa! He cannot walk, and needs to use a wheel chair. Around a month ago, his bones got so weak that he broke his hip, and had to have emergency medical care; he was there for weeks! On my inspiration page, there is a video of him talking to my class. I was in the 3rd grade when he spoke for my class; He was 87. He is explaining his adventure fighting in world war 2 when he was only 17! Seeing how skinny he is breaks my heart; please give him all your prayers, because he really needs them!
Thank you,
Franki.

About Franki Jo

I would say that I'm best known around Wisconsin as “that girl who sings by the Sun Dial in Oshkosh during the Farmer’s Market”. The first words I hear from many people are, "how old are you?" --I'm 18. While I perform at many public and private events around the state, Packers’ fans got to know me when I sang our Anthem at Lambeau Field in 2013. I love the theater and have been acting since I can remember. I have been cast in several films and an award-winning music video (London and Hollywood Independent Film Awards). You can find my activities here or on Facebook and Instagram. It would please me for you to attend one of my community performances--tell ALL your friends! I can never have enough friends, so please register to my website and email me any time!
