This month we’re heading down to Atlanta to help Felicity, a little 4-year-old girl who was just diagnosed with brain cancer. Felicity had immediate surgery and is currently undergoing aggressive radiation treatments for the remaining portion of the tumor, which has left the family with a huge amount of medical bills. We want to raise $5,000 to help them with the cost of radiation therapy, especially with upcoming expenses from a new baby on the way. Additionally, we want to shower this family with love, support, and some good fun things to do, so start thinking about creative gifts as well!
You’ll find Felicity’s video on the new Love Drop homepage (animal lovers, you’ll like it) and please note the button on the right to give a one-time amount of $25 to help cover her radiation treatments. If you’ve ever had a very sick child, you know how fast those medical bills add up. With all of us coming together this month, we should be able to take care of a good amount for them. 🙂
Why We’re Helping This Family
In just the past few months, the Withrow family has gone from perfectly “normal” to experiencing the unthinkable – first when Felicity was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and then shortly after, when her 24-year-old uncle Chad, the life and spirit of her family, passed away from heatstroke while working outside. In addition, Amanda is pregnant with their third child, which is due sometime during Felicity’s treatments.
The emotional weight of these three situations is incredible, and the financial stresses are huge, but through it all the Withrow’s continue to care for others. In fact, when Amanda gets back from the hospital each day, she tells others about all the kids they met there, and asks for prayers and love for them as well. If you’ve ever had a child in the hospital, you know how valuable a loving community can be. This month, let’s become that community for them.
