Never in my wildest dreams, did I think I would be here to tell the story of a little boy and his dad being struck by lightning, but here I am. At approximately 5:10, Monday evening, May 15,2023, Matthew, Grayson, and Elijah were walking down the driveway after getting off the bus, when lightning came out of the sky without warning, and entered Matthew's body and traveled to Grayson, since they were holding hands. It is with a sad heart that I let you know the father, Matthew Boggs, 34, of Valley Mills, TX, did not make it. I am here to beg for your prayers and help. Grayson is a 6 year old little boy who is currently fighting for his life at the Children's Hospital in Temple, Texas. He is currently on a vent and is having seizures. The doctors have told us that because he was hit by lightning, their main concerns are his heart, lungs, and kidney damage. The next 72 hours are crucial. Please if you are not in a place to donate, please, please, please share! Thank you for your prayers, kindness, and generosity.
All of the proceeds will go directly to the Boggs family to help with funeral expenses, as well as to support the boys with their future.
For anyone that would like to know my connection to this family, Matthew and the boys are my cousins. They are from Indiana, but relocated to Texas several years ago.
