Meet Austin...nothing ever prepares you for this moment. We've heard it before, many times, but never quite this close to home. We often sympathized but in the same thought thanked God for never having to endure such an experience and we help those in need because it feels 'right'. We think, what would I do? How would I react? And now we know.
Austin has had 3 months of not feeling well and when he couldn't get over pneumonia they tested him further only to find cancer. Lymphoma, leukemia and a mass by his sternum. It's very aggressive and we're hitting it just as aggressive. The doctors are moving swiftly. We've been hit with so much information, tests, doctors and words we never thought we'd need to understand.
Sara and Kevin both have jobs and Sara has had to leave her job to care for Austin. She travels home to be with her other child while having others spend time with Austin. His father Paul has also taken a leave from his job to help with the aide of Austin. He's been moved to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital where for the next 3 weeks they will hit him heavy with chemo.
Austin is a grandson, a son, a brother, a cousin and a new uncle. We ask that you help in this challanging chapter the family is facing while having the loss of wages and traveling to and from Vanderbilt. Families don't need this burden weighing on them while facing tragic health issues.
If you know a member of this family, would you please share this page with them?
When we discover the value of each day, the feeling we give with every word spoke and the giving of help, we learn what love and gifting is about.
We as a family, will walk fearlessly in his healing and hope you will humbly keep him in your prayers.
Merry Christmas to you all!
