Our Vanik Sofiyev, Post 3rd Stroke

My name is Jennifer and I am the lucky one to have given Vanik his 2 loving grandbabies Bentley and Brody Sofiyev. They are the light of his life and the reason he is still with us. They miss their Pop. They ask daily is Poppy feeling better, When is our Poppy coming home. The innocence and sadness in their eyes is so hard to see. To all of you who know and love our Vanik Sofiyev (Poppy as his grandkids call him). Vanik is the most loving, caring, kind hearted person I know. He is the best grandpa I have ever seen. Vanik has had 2 strokes this year and on Friday Dec 14th he had his 3rd stroke in his life which has left him struggling to overcome. In 2013 he was able to overcome his first stroke and on Nov 2018 he was able to overcome his 2nd stroke with minor issues and his 3rd stroke has managed to give him the fight of his life. He is paralyzed on his right side and will need to relearn many things along with get therapy to overcome this stroke. I had went to see him in the hospital and I told him he is strong and will get through this also that me and the boys miss and love him very much. His eyes then became filled with water as his tears came down his face. I love him so much and cant imagine our lives without him. Me and his grandkids ask that you pray with us for god to heal OUR Vanik (Poppy). Please help us fight to bring him home. If you are able to donate to help us it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! From our house to your home god bless you and your families.
