Damon Update

See that sweet little boy there standing on the sled with his big brother and mommy?? That's Damon and he is a complete cutie patootie!! Right now, Damon is in the hospital with a nasty infection so we all need to be sending up some extra prayers. Pray that his line does not have to be replaced, that he doesn't lose any more weight, and that his family will feel God's peace in this hectic time. Pray especially for his big brother, Cole. Siblings have a tough time when things like this are's scary for the parents so try to imagine how it feels to someone young.

Damon is on the waiting list for a liver/small bowel/ pancreas transplant at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Pete and I met Damon and his family when we shared a room during transplant evaluation.

Hopefully, tomorrow, I'll have a good news update for you all!!

If you like, you can send a card to Damon (Hiett) through Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

I am so appreciative that my cousin Christina and her husband Jason has such good friends to look after them when they are away from home!! I really hope things work out for them and Damon! I love your website and the fact that you are doing so much to help other families in their time of need.
Thank you so much!! Brandi Howerton
