It gives us great pleasure to inform you that we met our goal for Harrison’s trip yesterday. As it stands, we now have airfare, accommodations, and enough to pay for the procedure. Thank you! The burden of caring for a child with CP is tremendous enough by itself. Your assistance in helping us overcome this financial burden is very much appreciated.
As of now, we have moved the procedure up to the week of July 27th to allow for cheaper airfare and hotel availability.
You should also be aware of the great good that is coming of this. Harrison’s friend from school is also going to have the procedure done. Another friend with CP has begun making preparations for the same. The school and community have rallied around these two boys like you wouldn’t believe (go to http://www.thebighope.com/ to see for yourself). There is a 5K run this Saturday at the elementary school right before our pool opens. Spots are running on the radio, the NBC station interviewed Alicia and H this morning, the Denver Post will run a story, and the Aurora Sentinel is doing a story too. In all of this, we are firm in our testimony and make it clear to all that we recognize the hand of our Heavenly Father in this.
About 10 years ago, when H was diagnosed with his disability, Alicia and I said to each other that we would see a long list of miracles with this child. We count this achievement as yet another in the long list of miracles we have witnessed together as a family already. Please feel free to share our sentiments with all interested family and friends not listed above.
All our love,
Jeff and Alicia
