LET'S HELP OUT A LOCAL FAMILY IN NEED!
The Stevenson Family has recently been given heartbreaking news that they are going to lose one of their children to an incurable illness.
Their 8-year-old son has been diagnosed with a degenerative neurological condition called Leukodystrophy, it’s expected that he has only a year or so before he leaves them. This is a disease that creates loss of coordination, seizures and dementia in its patients. Once the symptoms present, the degeneration is often aggressive, so the family has only a short amount of time left with their little boy.
The family want to spend as much of the precious time they have left to create special memories with all their children together while they still can. But with the ongoing medical expenses and the very likely future need for round-the-clock in-home support, it’s difficult for them to enjoy what little time they have left together.
We can help to ease the burden for this family by coming together as a community to raise some much needed funds and giving them more precious time to spend with their family creating special memories.
