Won't you help this young family?

Won't you help this young family?

 

In June of 2021, Kodah, our grandson, was born with a rare congenital disorder that is not curable. After 2 life flights, emergency room visits and a few hospital stays, he was finally diagnosed. The bills amount to more than $220,000.00. This July, Sebastian, Kodah's dad, fell and broke his neck, sustaining other life threatening injuries. His hospital bill is around $250,000.00.

 

 

He is unable to go back to work and will need several months to heal and then start physical therapy to regain muscle and become strong again. If you can donate, that would be a great help. Here is the link: https://gofund.me/9695d29d

 

A note from Kodah's mom and Sebastian's wife:

Over the last year, our family has been through so much. From multiple life flights and NICU stays for our son Kodah, to finally getting a diagnosis and having to educate ourselves on his rare genetic disorder. It was so much on our family, but we stayed strong together and leaned on each other to process everything. I felt like we were finally through the hurdles and Sebastian and I were both working through our trauma and we were finally feeling like we turned a corner.

 

But, in July my husband Sebastian had a terrible accident. He lost consciousness and fell out of his semi-truck and landed directly on his head. He lay there unconscious for hours before he was able to wake himself up. If he didn't wake up, he probably would not be here with us today. No one would have been around to see him or find him until the following day. It's truly such a miracle that he woke up and was able to find the strength to pull himself back up into his truck and call me.

 

He ended up needing emergency surgery for a broken neck. Along with that, he has a broken back, a severed ligament in his spine, nerve damage, brain bleeding, as well as a skull fracture. It's safe to say that it is a miracle he's alive, much less walking. He still has a very long road ahead and I think it's taking quite a bit of time to process this injury. He has been the main support for our family since we had our son last year and this has been an extremely hard time for our family. We have tried so hard to handle our burdens on our own, but we have reached a point where we can no longer do this alone.

 

It has been hard to come to terms with the fact that we need help in this season of life. We have so many medical appointments ahead for Sebastian as well as Kodah and financially we could use all of the help we can get during this time. We know that the Lord works in mysterious ways and we will get through this, but we need some help to get there.

 

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

-Devyn

Hi Wanda it's unbelievable that this young family has dealt with so much in this past year or so. I knew about the baby but I didn't realize what happened to Sebastian.  It truly is a miracle that he survived. I know you guys have been a major source of strength and support for them and will continue to be. Right now they could use all of our help. Bless you all.  I will pray for them every day and keep them in my thoughts.

Sometimes life hands you some serious situations and says, "Now deal with it." They just need some help and were reluctant to ask, Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543. Thank you for your prayers and kind heart!

I'm sorry I'm so late in reading this, Wanda.  I've been MIA from the Rain for a while due to blogging block and having torn part of my rotator cuff which meant therapy on Tuesday afternoons.  I pray everyone is doing okay.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
