Take the load off London’s back!

She just turned 13. We were all hoping she would be able to receive therapy and move on from there. But in August 2018 London’s parents received the news that the degree of her scoliosis is so severe that surgery is her only option. The curvature in her spine at its worst point is at  56 degrees. She will undergo spinal surgery this December to fix the curve and put several rods in her back.  It is major surgery and there are several risks involved. Needless to say all of her friends and family are worried and hope that this goes smoothly. 
   This was very unexpected for Scott and Jodi, her parents, and they would never ask for help so I’m doing it for them!
   Scott and Jodi are the epitome of kind, generous, loving people. They have never hesitated to help someone in need. They took in 4 teenage boys when they had their own 3 children to care for. But they saw a need and jumped to help. Their house has always been open to anyone needing a place to stay and a warm meal. So many people have benefitted from their hospitality and generous spirits. I know many hold them near and dear to their hearts. 
   Scott has been a firefighter for the Fort Worth Fire Department for 19 years and Jodi is a stay at home mom and volunteers her time to teach people the Bible. 
   I think everyone’s fear is your child falling ill and wishing it were you instead. So let’s help lift that burden a tiny bit and help them get through this time. The money donated will be used towards the percentage they have to pay out of pocket for the back surgery. Plus all extra costs for lost time at work, transportation, doctors visits and where ever they see the need for it. Thank you!
