We want to thank you all who came to our ride, dropped off or mailed donations. We raised over $2000 for these two special children! We had a fun day, got to meet Max and had a great meal when we got back. We also want to send a huge thank you to the band who offered to spend their Saturday evening making music for us. Thank you Alien Super Jesus!
Our Local Heroes
Meet Mighty Max. Max is always smiling and that is just one of his super hero powers. Max is 11 years old and has been fighting leukemia for 7 years. Max and his momma Emily are going to be going to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh soon where he will be receiving treatment that will hopefully get him on the way to recovery. We all know how expensive it is to travel and stay out of town for long periods of time and I know you will want to help take some of the burden off of them so they will have one less thing to worry about.
Meet our tiniest super hero, Skylar was born 5 weeks early on 5-27-23 with many health problems. He was placed on a vent for under developed lungs and at a couple days old he was diagnosed with E.coli which led to sepsis. The sepsis then attacked his small intestine, shortly after he required emergency surgery to remove most of his bowels. For 8 weeks Skylar had double colostomy bags until he became healthy enough for second surgery to reconnect his bowels on 7/20. He has had a few setbacks since the surgery and is still having a hard time with feeding. He will continue to be monitored in the NICU until he is able to tolerate feedings. Let's help this family out with the extra expenses that come along with long hospital stays.
