When Michael first told me about his diagnosis, it felt like my whole world was crashing down on me. He talked to me and made ME feel better. He told me, “I have a beautiful wife and children who need me, so I’m going to fight this”. Knowing Michael’s love for kids, I knew he was telling the truth. He would fight with everything he had. Michael was and will continue to be one of the best, male, role models my girls have had in their lives. He was always there for those three little girls, as they were growing up. He didn’t have to be. But he was. It’s who he is. He gives of himself freely and without an expectation of receiving anything in return.
Michael always talks about how he couldn’t have undergone such aggressive treatment without the love, support and prayers he received from his friends and family. Now it’s time for us to up our game a little bit and take that support to the next level. With all the chemo and radiation behind him, the bills are starting to come in and pile up. To add to their burden, Rachel, his beautiful wife, was just laid off so they have lost that source of income. Michael and his family desperately need our help. If you know Michael, you know that he would NEVER ask but that’s what friends are for. Let’s take some unnecessary stress off him and his wife and help out with whatever we can.
A few weeks ago Michael received good news from his scan and his friends and loved ones were overjoyed to hear there are no signs of cancer. Hooray! Please pour your love, thoughts and prayers into the Thornton family but let’s not forget to give financially as well.
I am so grateful to every single one of you who will find it in your heart to donate to Michael’s cause! We need to let him know that he is not in this fight alone. By donating, you are giving this family hope and an opportunity to regain control of their lives. Once you choose hope, anything is possible! God bless you all for donating!
