Valentine’s Day 2017. Supposed to be about love, right? Well for our family, it wasn't all about roses and hearts. This is the day that our lives will now be forever changed.
Meet Carson Dale Crofts. He is the son of Paul Crofts and Randee Ramos. He is 8 years old and is a third grader at Willow Creek Elementary in Riverton Wyoming. He is a fun loving "little" guy who has the heart the size of Texas and who has more faith in God then most kids his age. His family and him have been dealt some pretty devastating news over the past couple of days. He has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. This is a type of cancer that typically is found in children. He has a tumor on his kidney and in his chest. There is also some areas on the outside of his bones. They have taken a biopsy of the bone marrow to see if it is also inside of his bones. He is currently at Children's Hospital in Denver and is going to have to be here for awhile because he is going to have to have a lot of treatment to get this under control. We are setting up a Go Fund Me page to help with any expenses that his family may incur over the next few days and months. This money will be used for any deductibles or co-pays, fuel for traveling, lodging, meals, and any other miscellaneous things that may arise during this time. If you cannot donate, we are taking all the prayers we can get. We certainly appreciate all of the phone calls, text messages, thoughts, and prayers so far. #CARSONSTRONG
I just wanted to thank everyone for their support of Carson and his family. It has been wonderful to see our community rally around Carson and his family with all of the donations. I was honored to help Carson’s grandfather Terance Crippen and his wife Erika set up the GoFundme account. Erika Crippen will be administering the withdrawal of the GoFundme account donations and it will be transferred into the Wells Fargo Fund Fundraising account where Carson’s mother Randee Ramos (Terrance’s daughter) can access it for expenses as needed.
For those who do not know, there is a Facebook page detailing Carson’s treatment and progress (Bubba’s Journey)….the link is below:
Thank you for your continued prayers and support for Carson and his family.
