Earlier this week, I received an email from someone I have never met before named Erin. Upon learning of her unfortunate circumstances, we have agreed to create this post. I don’t know how many people read this site per day, or what each ones financial standing is, but I am compelled to at least make Erin’s story available to anyone that might feel the need to assist. If you are able to help this family, please contact Erin directly at her email address (HERE). At the very least, would you mind sending her an email to let her know that we are praying Gods blessings upon her family? Thanks for being the best readers any blogger can ever hope for!
Erin’s Story:
“My four year old was diagnosed with ALL, Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia on 12-15-06, ten days before Christmas. The worst Christmas of my life. We were in the hospital fighting to keep our son alive.
My nine year old was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes almost seven months to the day that my hour year old was diagnosed. We thought he just had the flu. Until he couldn’t keep his eyes open, and he was pale, and weak and he lost about ten pounds overnight. I took him to the ER thinking it was the flu. Next thing I knew, we were in an ambulance on our way to a hospital 100 miles away. The same hospital that they had rushed our four year old too. He was in ICU for 3 days. Now, he is almost normal. But he will require insulin for the rest of his life.
Between all of the doctor, hospital bills & prescriptions we have gotten behind on everything. Which has damaged our credit. But I really need 4 wheel drive to get them to the doctor in the winter. I guess I just hoped that I might find someone that had the means to help me. And seeing how it is close to Christmas, what better time to ask for such a gift.
I happened upon your site on accident. But the more I read about you & your family, which are beautiful by the way, the more that I thought you might be able to help me. Or to help me find someone that can help me.”
As one of my old Pastors used to say, “May God bless the gift and the giver”.
