Ashton's Miracle Foundation

$56,629 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 667 people in 42 months
It is with deep sadness that the Arabo Family shares that our sweet little Ashton has passed. Sometimes God's will is stronger than prayers, even with an army of thousands storming heaven with them. We can't thank you enough for your kindness and support with our #MiracleforAshton, but it turns out our miracle was the 6 years we were blessed to have with our extraordinary boy.  

No one would ever expect a simple flu virus to completely change your life. But while struggling through this terrible illness, we were overwhelmed by the incredible outpouring of prayers, messages, and acts of kindness from thousands of people all across Michigan, around the country, and even many parts of the world. People from all walks of life, believers of all different faiths, friends from different stages of our lives, and members of so many different communities, all came together, from near and far, to pray for the healing of our sweet little boy.

It was astounding to see how a tragic situation could bring so many people together and show the true beauty of empathy and compassion. Ashton taught us so much in his short life, but this final lesson was his greatest.  As a way to pay it forward, we have created Ashton's Miracle Foundation so that we can spread acts of kindness in his honor day after day and year after year.  We thank you in advance for your contribution and pledge to use these funds to bring miracles to others in Ashton's name.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of your loss. Ashton was an amazing little boy. I enjoyed seeing him in class. We had a lot of fun together at the Halloween party. Logan Mayville wanted to say he is thinking of you and he was glad he had the chance to be Ashton's classmate and friend. He will always remember playing the marble game with him.

Melody and family, there are no adequate words to express how sorry I am for the loss of your beautiful Ashton. Your strength and thought for others are amazing and beautiful. I pray you continue to find strength and peace through your faith, family and friends, and will keep you in my prayers. I am also sending special prayers for Adam - my sisters are twins and the bond is indescribable. May God hold him especially close.
