thank you for your donations!

a benefit is tentatively set for may 18 and that is when I would like to personally give the parents the check from the donations of the GL4X4 community.

this is going to be a long and expansive haul for these young, first time parents and we would appreciate anything you are able to give to help this infant and his parents in this time of need.

if anyone is interested in attending the benefit I will post the details as I get them.

I will also post a total donation amount received through the generosity of you all at the time I cut the check just before the benefit.

I cannot express my gratitude enough for your help on this.

feel free pm me with any questions and I'll be sure to answer them as quickly as I can.

again, Thank You!

Default Back on top! Lets keep it here.

Thanks guys!

It never ceases to amaze me how giving and generous you all are when someone is truly in need.

Every bit helps, even pebbles can fill in a hole.

Been down this road, gonna gather some scratch and get it your way.
It sucks as a parent knowing you have zero control of what happens next.

thank you for your donations, we are off to a good start!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the people of this site are by far the best dysfunctional family a person could ask for.

This tears me apart. Being I just became a father on 1/16/13 and my little boy had health issues also when he was born. I will be sending a check next week when I get paid. Thoughts and prayers. CS Mott is a great hospital for the little ones.

I hope your little man is doing well.
Any little bit you could send to help these guys out will be very helpful.
Thank You!

I re posted the link on Facebook along with the address to make a donation. I will keep re posting and hope it gets passed to many others. This is so sad. I hope he finds a heart soon. And for people that are reading this and are not donors already, I hope you re consider. I am a donor and so are my children. I couldnt imagine having to deal with a situation like this. But if for some reason someday something were to happen to any of us and we have the option to donate our organs I know I will be saving lives like this little boy just like the person who will be donating their heart to him sometime soon!
