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.
