Our friends, Richy and Jessica, have a wonderful, handsome and terribly ill little boy. They have been active in ministry for Jesus Christ and advocates of children, adoption, grief support, and so much more. Givers. They are simply givers.
After our Benjie was first diagnosed with his “life threatening” illness, a nurse came in to his clinic room and said, “Hey it’s Ben; one of our Million Dollar Babies!” With several trips to Children’s Hospital every week, blood transfusions, bone marrow aspirations, hospitalizations, surgeries, daily home injections…. he was a million dollar baby for sure. His year of illness was at least that amount. We would get bills of $40,000 and $80,000 and just add them to the pile. We had excellent insurance, PRAISE GOD, but not all was covered, and our needs were great….. God had provided in a very different way that year.
But back to precious “R2″. He was just diagnosed with an unknown debilitating degeneration of unknown name. They somewhat have been sent home to just love on him and watch.
If you knew these friends, you would know that they will certainly love R2 well, but they will add in FIGHT. That is where we all need to help.
They will have doctor visits, clinic visits, treatments and travel…. and the cost is an absolute unknown.
If you have any ability to donate to help them in ANY SMALL or LARGE way, please do so at https://www.wepay.com/donations/support-the-clark-family
Do it in memory of our Benjie. Do it in memory of your loved one. Do it as a thanksgiving for your healthy child or grandchild! As they care for their family and see to the challenges ahead, money is a way we all can pitch in together. This is our way of loving them. Give to the givers.
Please prayerfully consider how you can assist them. Every amount makes a huge difference.
Every baby is a million dollar baby, sometimes their bills just come at us in seemingly violent ways. Thank you so much.
