I love all the K’s – meet Kyle, Kaylan, Karter and Kade 🙂 This beautiful young family has 2 boys diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, Karter and Kade. Unfortunately, their younger son Kade, has had many many hospital stays and a much rougher time with his illness than his older brother Karter. Being available for both boys while running back and forth to the hospital, doctor visits, lab checkups, hotels, gas, etc. has put them in a very difficult financial situation. As we have said before, many CF families decide that at least one family member must stay home to care for the child while the other becomes the breadwinner. But, what if that just doesn’t cover the bills plus all the extra care needed to make sure your children are covered by insurance and all of their daily needs are met? This brings us to a situation where both parents must work and still try to juggle everything on their own. Sounds impossible, right? Well, we agree! We are so grateful that we were able to be a small bridge for this family while enduring another extended stay for young Kade. Their mother writes “Receiving this grant was an amazing blessing for our family. Between our 2 CF kids, I have had to miss 12 days of work just in the last month. Missing those 12 days means that I don’t get paid because I am out of leave time. This grant allowed the bills to get paid and we didn’t have to stress while helping our children. That helps ease a parents heart so much! Again, we are so very thankful for this grant.” Big love to all of you who have recently started following us or joined our mailing list and donated. You are the reason we are able to help families like this, to know that they are cared for by a large community and that they don’t have to do this all alone.
