Hope and Help for Cindy and Charlie

This is Luke. He is 13 years old. Luke got a very high fever when he was a toddler and sustained some brain damage. We believe he is fully mentally functional, but can only speak with facial expressions. His smiles and raised eyebrows will melt your heart. He has had a rough go of it since October. He has been hospitalized with muscle spasms, fevers, low respiratory, had a tracheotomy put in, emergency surgery for a perforated bowel and more. Twice in that time he was airlifted to a hospital in Madison WI for treatment involving his pump that gets his muscle spasm medicine to his brain. He just can't seem to catch a break. His parents Charlie and Cindy have been by his side the whole time with a few breaks from Grandma and Grandpa and other family members. They have been missing so much work that it has caused a financial burden in addition to the stress of having a sick child. Won't you please help this family reduce some of the stress in their lives through your prayers and financial donation to help them stay afloat through this difficult time. Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
