This precious boy is Nathaniel. Last May, at 15 months old, he lost his battle with leukemia. He left behind his sweet parents, Sean and Christina, and sister, Cecilia. Next week his family will be celebrating his second birthday and he won’t be there to blow out the candles. My heart just breaks for them…a million times over.
I’ve had the privilege of “meeting” Nathaniel’s mama on the phone. She lives locally, so we are hoping to meet in real life soon. Nathaniel was so loved and they are missing him like crazy. He was the most adorable little boy and he loved books and bubbles. In honor of Nathaniel’s birthday, his family is collecting books and bubbles to be distributed at local hospitals to bless other kids battling illness. One of the hospitals they will be taking these gifts to is Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. If you have been following me since the beginning, you know that Wesley is where Cora fought her battle with cancer. Wesley is close to my heart! They will also be delivering books to Children’s Mercy in Kansas City.
Would you guys help me bless Nathaniel’s family and the kids at these hospitals? Would you consider sending a book or some bubbles to honor Nathaniel’s life? Nathaniel’s birthday is February 13th. They are planning on taking the books and bubbles to Wesley February 15th. Please have all gifts delivered to the address listed above by February 14th. I know that this doesn’t give us much time, but since Amazon Prime is our bff this is totally doable, right?! Amazon Prime for the win. They will also be delivering books to Children’s Mercy in Kansas City on February 27th. So if you can’t make the first deadline there is still time!
If you have any questions you can use the contact information listed above. You can also leave a comment here or email me and I will get the information to Christina. And if you can’t donate, would you consider praying for Christina and her family as they travel this hard road of grief?
Thanks so much for helping me love on this family! You guys are the best.
