Today, we sent a prepaid VISA gift card to the parents of baby Addison, who is in the NICU after being born at 3.9 lbs. We know how hard it is to be in the hospital day in and day out with your baby, so we hope this small gift will help in some way. Please keep baby Addison and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, especially since the holidays are coming up.

Thank you again to everyone who has made donations and for those who continue to pray for R Angel. We are in the process of some exciting advances with R Angel and can't wait to get everything squared away!

Today, we sent out 3 prepaid VISA cards to help some families who have sick children in the hospital. One went to a family whose baby boy has just been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer. He has begun treatment, but has a long road ahead of him.

Another one went to a family who had twins & one of the twins has heart issues and has been hospitalized. They live quite far away from the hospital & also have another child at home. We hope this gift card will help with some of the travel expenses we know they will incur.

The third gift card went to a family whose baby boy, Brody, was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and has already had 2 surgeries. He is up in Ann Arbor in the hospital and will have to have a 3rd surgery eventually.

Please keep all of these babies and their families in your thoughts & prayers, especially over the holidays!

We were recently contacted by a student from St. John's school because he had to do a service project & wanted to volunteer for R Angel. So, we took him with us to buy food and goodies for a basket & tons of bathroom supplies to replenish the shower room at The Toledo Hospital. We went to the hospital and were able to speak with some of Remi's nurses and one of them, our dear friend Cassie :), showed us to a family in need at the hospital. The baby boy has neuroblastoma & we were able to meet his family and deliver a basket of food and goodies to them. It was an amazing experience to surprise them & we are so thankful they allowed us to come into their room & meet their sweet little boy. Please keep this baby and his family in your prayers, especially during this holiday season!

We also delivered 13 baskets of bathroom supplies to the nurses in the PICU to hand out to families who may need them during their stay at the hospital with their child. Thank you to Malcolm for helping us make some R Angel deliveries today & thank you to all the nurses at The Toledo Hospital PICU for continuing to support R Angel & helping us help families!
