We recently sent 2 VISA gift cards to the families of 2 little boys who are very sick. Dane is fighting cancer & has been in & out of the hospital. We pray this sweet boy can be home for Christmas!  Owen is in the hospital fighting a bad virus in his brain. Please pray that he makes a full recovery from this & can also be home for Christmas!  

Thank you all for your continued support & prayers for all the R Angel families!  I know they appreciate it as well. Merry Christmas!

We recently sent 4 families VISA gift cards to help pay for expenses they may incur while their children are in the hospital.

Baby Maverick was in the hospital for issues with his insulin but has since been discharged & is doing well!

Baby Wyatt was in the ICU with a brain bleed, which required surgery,  & his family was driving back & forth to the hospital daily. He has also been discharged to home & is doing well!

Baby Charlie was born with RCDP & has been in the NICU since birth. He is working hard to get home for Thanksgiving but has a long road ahead of him. He is definitely a little fighter!!

The last gift card went to another family of a baby in the NICU, but we do not have a name.  This baby was set to be discharged & should be home by now as well.

Please pray for all these families and these sweet babies!!  So thankful for those that are home for Thanksgiving & praying that baby Charlie gets to spend Thanksgiving at home with his family too!

Last week, we visited the NICU to deliver 2 baskets of goodies & prepaid gift cards to 2 sets of twins. Both sets of twins were born prematurely & have been in the hospital for several weeks already. We didn't get to meet either family - just dropped the baskets off so hopefully they were surprised :). Please pray for Brynn & Selah and Cowen & Callie as they finish their stay in the NICU. We hope that someday this difficult time will all just be a blur for them & that these babies get to come home soon!!  Thank you!

Sorry for the delay of this post. A few weeks ago, we sent an R Angel gift card to the family of a baby boy at Mott Children's who was having lots of heart issues. Sweet baby Ollie has since passed away & we are so sorry for this family's loss. Please join us in praying for them as they mourn the loss of their baby boy!

We also delivered 2 R Angel gift cards to 2 families staying with their babies in the hospital. One baby, Carson, was born prematurely & has to spend some time in the NICU but we hear he is doing very well!!  Please pray that he gets to come home soon!

The second gift card was delivered to a mother in the PICU with her baby. We took an extra gift card to the hospital & asked the nurses if they had anyone that would benefit from an R Angel & they picked this family. Not sure why this little baby was in the hospital but we will pray for healing!

Thank you for continuing to support R Angel!  It amazes us everyday how the donations alone to R Angel continue to keep us going!  Without you, it wouldn't be possible to continue to do what we do :). THANK YOU!!

We recently sent 2 prepaid VISAs to 2 families that had premature babies in the NICU. Both families were traveling back & forth to the hospital daily to see their sweet babies. This can get very exhausting & expensive!  We hope these gift cards helped in a small way. Please keep baby Arthur & baby Emersyn in your prayers!  They are both home now & doing well but we know there will be lots of follow-up appointments to make sure they are growing and staying healthy!!  Thanks for all your support!!

Hello everyone!  I just realized I never posted about what we did on Ben's birthday this year, which was Decembet 23!  Our entire family went up to Toledo Hospital & stocked the PICU waiting room with bathroom supplies for families staying at the hospital with their children. We also took several prepaid VISA gift cards & passed them out to families that the nurses told us would likely be there over Christmas. We went to the PICU, the NICU, the peds floor, & the Hematology/Oncology floor. It was nice to surprise these families & wish them a Merry Christmas!

Recently, we sent prepaid VISAs to 2 families. One family is in Tennessee & they had a premature baby who was going to be in the hospital for a while. The other family had a premature baby, Celinda, who was in the NICU. Please keep these families in your thoughts & prayers!
