This photo was taken in July at Todd’s parent’s 50th anniversary party. The man is Todd’s cousin Rob. His youngest son has cerebral palsy and other health issues. Rather than have him stuck in his new wheelchair, Rob carried him that whole evening. We all marveled at how he never put that little guy down. His devotion was humbling. His wife is battling breast cancer, but she was there, and in good spirits. Little Matthew was happy that day. He was flirting with Todd’s cousin Kathy, and she was baiting him to say she was “pretty.” He said it every time.
Sadly, little Matthew died this morning. He recently became very sick and his organs stopped working.
Rob’s wife underwent major surgeries less than two months ago. She’s barely had any time to heal.
How much can one family bear?
Please send them your prayers. Please pray for Rob and Martha. Please look at little Nicholas on the right in the photo above. He’s lost his brother today. His mother is battling cancer. Please hold this little boy in your heart.
A benefit is planned for this family. If you would like to donate contact me privately and I’ll give you details.
