We were on our way to completing Autumn’s 2 year protocol of chemotherapy when we received the most devastating news, that her Cancer had returned and Autumn’s strongest hope for survival would be a bone marrow transplant. Thankfully, our 6 month old son Leif became our miracle baby and Autumn’s bone marrow donor. Just before the New Year, 2008, our family of 4 traveled to Boston for this life saving procedure and spent the next two months fighting for our daughter’s life and all these many months fighting for her full recovery.
We had no idea of the help that The Tomorrow Fund could give to a family until we were in this awful time of need. We own Lawrence’s Corrective Tree Care and had to put our business on hold and give up our income to be together as a family during this very difficult and stressful time. Mortgage, utilities, taxes, and health insurance were all paid by The Tomorrow Fund when we could not pay. The stress that was lifted by having this financial support from The Tomorrow Fund was truly unbelievable! It was as if a safety net was wrapped around us throughout our ordeal encouraging us to focus our attention solely on our child’s care and recovery. The Tomorrow Fund supported our family in ways that we will always remember and will forever pay it forward.
