Why do I need to help?
 
Emily has had a long year,full of challenges. She now faces years of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Emily cannot yet walk or feed herself yet. She doesn't set up and requires assistance doing basic tasks. She requires 24 care,which has puts a great financial strain on our family. While insurance covers most of the cost of her care, there are many things that they do not cover. That is why this benefit was put together. You can never understand the emotional and financial strain that comes about while battling a life threatning illness, until you go through it. And you never think it will happen to your child. I didn't.
 
God Bless
The Young Family

One night I dreamed I was walking
along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed
across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints
in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of
footprints,
other times there were one set of
footprints.

This bothered me because I
noticed
that during the low periods of my
life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of
footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the
most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of
footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you
have not been there for me?”

The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen
only one set of footprints in the
sand,
is when I carried you
