Here's a little bit more about Pat and his family: Linda and Pat Roberts had two boys Sam (30) and Chris (31). Unfortunately, Pat’s wife Linda died in 1997 at the age of 35 due to heart failure, and Pat has been on his own to take care of the boys ever since. Linda was born with the disease Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in your nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue. Sadly, both of kids have inherited NF. They have had many, many other health issues and disabilities over the years. Their disabilities prevent them from holding full-time jobs. But despite these enormous challenges, the family has placed priority on not reflecting on their own hardships, but focusing their support on others by giving back in their church and community. Chris has volunteered more than 10,000 hours since he was 13 at the senior home in his community. Sam raises money for the American Cancer Walk for Life, and the Heart walk. He's done both of these walks eight times. Pat designs and makes Christmas trees to auction off for the Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital Festival of the Trees.
This family has done so much for their community and now they need our help. Pat's healthcare was not scheduled to kick in until months after the incident. Right now, he's left wondering if he will have to sell his house in order to pay the hospital bills. Any amount of love and support would help. This is a family who has always shown love and support to others. Can you show support to them?
Thank you very much!
