We could not be more trilled to come together to make this season extra special for these two local families. Both of the them have a child who is fighting a different type of cancer. Each child will receive a 'Busy Bag' that they can take to their many many many appointments and treatments along with other things on their secret wish list. It is filled with lots of things they love and will help keep them occupied while at the hospital. They each have siblings that we will take care of too. We will also include gift cards for gas and local restaurants around Nashville as they are both down there way to often. These children go through things that they never should have to.
MEET THE BOYS....
Meet Micah! This handsome 11 year old smiles and your heart is his! He has a huge heart for others but now it's his turn to be on the receiving end. When Micah was just 8 years old he was diagnosed with his 1st brain tumor. He is currently fighting a 2nd brain tumor. They have spent months in hospitals undergoing treatments. Because of the tumors and treatments there are several things that will no longer be the same for Micah. As his eye sight worsened he eventually lost sight in his right eye. Next week Local Initiative is going to make this season extra special for his family. We are especially excited to get a special bag he can take with 3 times a week to Vanderbilt to keep him occupied during treatments and appointments. We will also be doing something special for his big brother and sister! Want to be a part of this Christmas surprise?
