We recently were told of a little boy, Aiden, who has been diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). We know, from close friends of our family, that this family has a long road ahead of them and we will continue to keep them in our prayers. Aiden is currently at Cincinnati Children's Hospital being treated. R Angel sent this family a gift card to help pay for food while staying at the hospital or for other expenses they may incur while there. We wish them all the best and hope they can come home soon! Please keep Aiden in your thoughts and prayers!

We recently heard of a little boy, Bryson, who is only 1 year old, and has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer found in infants and young children. His family has been driving back and forth to Cleveland for extensive treatments. Bryson recently was admitted back to the hospital in Cleveland for a second transplant. R Angel sent this family a gift card to help with expenses for food, gas, etc. while getting Bryson the treatment he needs. Please keep this family in your continued prayers!

You may also remember the little boy, Keegan, who I wrote about a few weeks ago. Well, Keegan had his heart surgery yesterday at The University of Michigan. The lady that contacted us is actually going to visit Keegan's family in the next few days, so we made them a basket of food and goodies and it will be taken to them up in Ann Arbor. They are going to be in the hospital for at least 10 more days. Please keep this family in your prayers as well!

When we started R Angel, we got in contact with a lady from the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Toledo who is in charge of sending something to children with Down syndrome and their families when they are hospitalized. We thought that she would be a great way for us to connect with these families and help them out in a small way when they are staying in the hospital with their children. We recently got a call from her to inform us of a little boy, Keegan, who will be undergoing heart surgery this month at The University of Michigan. R Angel sent Keegan's family a gift card to help with expenses while staying there during his surgery and recovery. We are also planning on sending a basket of goodies up to them after he has surgery. Please keep Keegan and his family in your thoughts and prayers!

Also, continue praying for R Angel and the ability for us to get connected to more and more families! We have a few new ideas that we are looking into regarding R Angel and ways to continue raising money, so we will let you know when things are finalized. We also have been in contact with Toledo Children's Hospital regarding stocking the shower room with baskets of supplies for people who may not have realized they would be staying in the hospital, and therefore, may not have brought those types of things with them. They have not contacted us back, so we are about to just go stock the room anyways :)! Thanks again to all who have donated money, allowing us to do these wonderful things for people in Remi's name and honor! We miss her dearly, but she continues to live in our hearts and through R Angel, for sure!
