Medical Fund + David Pruiksma = Amazing Friends!!

December 28, 2005 (updated info on Medical Fund)
Humbled - Speechless - Grateful - Amazed

These are some of the feelings that we experienced when David Pruiksma came to our house right before Christmas to present the "Emily Lee Medical Fund" he had set up to help us care for Emily. David, and some other friends from a smattering of my past, have worked for a few months sending out nearly 600 letters to people that have known us at some point in our lives. Your responses were absolutely overwhelming and we are incredibly blessed to have so many people in our lives that love the Lord and care so much about us! So many of our worries in all that we have been dealing with have come from our many monetary concerns and this fund will continue to ease our tension and lighten our spirits. Thank you so very, very much. When David handed me the bank statement after explaining what they had been working on I just started to cry. That is the first time I have cried since Emily was diagnosed. After a short time I told him that I felt like we were on some reality TV show like Extreme Makeover or something. AMAZING.

The Emily Lee Medical Fund is set up with Bank of America and David has expressed intention for the account to be left open for future contributions. One only has to walk into a B of A and request to donate to the "Emily Lee Medical Fund" or click on the "Make a Donation" icon on Emily's Page... and it is tax deductable!

As I have said before, God is good!
