Help a brave girl get home
$248,976 of $175,000 goal
My hope for this campaign is to raise enough funds to get this sweet girl home to her family, and at a minimum raise enough so Ben can take off work again and return to Ohio with Phelicity's three sisters. So that however many days she has left, can be spent with her immediate family. These are some of the best people I've had the privilege of knowing and loving over the years. I am asking you to please help them in whatever way you can.
To all you beautiful souls out there I am phelicity's grandparent I just want to thank you so much for your generosity the little 8 year old girl who donated her tooth fairy money you my darling will grow up to be a caring beautiful person all the parents of sick children I wish you all the best in your own journey. We so so grateful to all of you and can assure you that our lives will be used to help others and to continue as phelicity would sharing with others her and our faith in God and his word.
Dear Sneesby Family, I have never met you, but a dear friend told me about you and the moment I heard and saw I felt like I knew you. You are my brothers and sisters and my heart aches for you. You are in my prayers and thoughts. May Jehovah the God of all comfort wrap you in his loving arms and help you through this extremely difficult time. Very soon Isaiah 33:24 will be fulfilled: "No resident will say: "I am sick." Phelicity's example is one of courage, love, and determination. Her beautiful smile and love for Jehovah is amazing! So much Christian Love to all of you even though I've never met you.
My dear sister and brother we just watched this months broadcast only to sit down and find this on the news page. Her faithful example made me cry. The reason is because we have our own daughter with a chd. She will be coming to Columbus, Ohio in the next little while to have open heart surgery. Your daughters example was just what mine needed to see. It gave us something else to think about. Thank you and your daughter for your beautiful example of faithfulness to Jehovah. Much love your spiritual family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Although we have never had the chance to meet you in person in Jehovahs organization were all family. Our daughter shares the same defect and your family has been our inspiration from day one Dr Galantowicz always talked to highly of your family! Our prayers are aching with you at this difficult time we know the end of this system is near but it still hurts us all so much to see this. Sending all our love from Californai
How surprised Ian and I were tonight to see you all on our February broadcast! It is very special that all of our brothers can be encouraged and strengthened by your story now also, as we have because of the Kimsey's introducing us to your story. My husband is quite the tenderheart, and has shed tears thinking of your struggles over the last few days of fundraising, and together we shed more in seeing you on jw tv! Much love and prayers...we look forward to serving forever with you in paradise.
Last month before Christmas, my coworker Amy and I dropped off some Christmas wreaths at the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus. Phelicity and her mom were on their way to CVS and I happened to see her leaving, and I started chatting. I asked if she knew about the television show "Felicity" and of course, she said, "That's what I'm named after!" It brightened my day knowing someone enjoyed the show as much as I did. I asked Phelicity if she would take a selfie with me, and her eyes lit up. She was friendly, conversational and so polite- talking as if she wasn't ill at all. For the next month, I told my colleagues, friends and family about how much Nationwide Children's Hospital impacts children from all around the world and how much of a joy it was to meet Phelicity and her mom by chance in the waiting room. I didn't know if I would ever see her again. I didn't know what her condition was nor did I want to ask. However, I knew we hadn't just met for a reason. Even though we only chatted for a bit, I am convinced it was for the best. Phelicity - I hope you get home comfortably and safe and know that your time spent here in Central Ohio was not wasted at all. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. - Hebrews 11:1
I don't even know how to express my sorrow for your family. I had the priviledge of meeting you after a convention in Dayton, Ohio 13 years ago. You had your badges on and I loved your accents so I struck up a conversation. You told me about your daughter and I've never forgotten about your family. I was only 20 then, but I've always wondered how everything turned out for your sweet girl. Jehovah will be with you through these difficult days and you have our prayers from all over the world until Jah can fix all your ails.
Hi All. Just wanted you to know that I received your donation page from Michael Joly this morning. I was very moved and wanted to help out. My company APG Exhibits recently launched our Exhibit Kindness Movement that is about supporting various children foundations. I went ahead and added a image and link on our website page for this. I hope that we are able to help out. I’ve made a donation from APG Exhibits as well. See bottom of the page. http://www.apgexhibits.com/Exhibit-Kindness-s/507.htm Wishing you all the best. Our prayers are with all of you!
Dear Phelicity, Ben & Veronica... We love you all so much! Although we haven't met you personally yet, our hearts abound with compassion and love for you. We can not find a way to express in words what we feel when we hear about your situation. We can only assure you that your pain is in our hears as well. My wife and I have decided to build a ship together with some of our brothers and sisters in Jehovah's new world. One dear brother, Andres, who very much looked forward to this project was buried yesterday. He died from cancer at age 56. Just a few days before he fell asleep he joked with us, saying that he wanted to be the foghorn on the ship. On this ship we will travel around the earth and visit our lovely worldwide family. From Sweden, Finland, Germany and Great Brittain, we will travel all the way down to Africa, Asia, Russia and America. And for you Phelicity, Ben & Veronica will make an extra detour to Australia. And maybe as we come to visit you, you'd like to come along with us and continue our journey throughout the earth? We will prepare one suite for you all on our ship, should you like to come along. We can see that you're tired now dear Phelicity, and we know that it is hard to run out of energy. Util the new system is here we wish for you, mummy and dady to be blessed by Jehoavah with an aboundance of peace and joy, yes as much as you can possibly bear! Ps.4:8; 5:11; 19:8; 29:11 Remember that all the contributions that both winesses and other lovely people have given you are an expression of deep love for you personally, both from each person and from Jehovah, Jesus and all the angels watching over you. We yearn for the time when we can meet you all and hug you and kiss you. Until then may you always remember how much we all love you and how precious you are to all of us! ;1 Pe.1:22; 5:7 We also would like to express to all you wonderful people that are not yet part of our worldwide brotherhood: We know that Jehovah appreciates your kindness very much, and we pray that he will bless you all richley for the true love and fine spirit that you have shown to our precoius little sister and her family. We hope that you too will all be with us when this planet is restored into a paradise, and share eternity with us! Ps.37:11, 29 With all the warmth, love and care that our hearts possess. / Daniel & Judith Vållberg, Sweden
