It is humbling for me to post this blog entry, but at the persistence of several friends, here goes…
Many have asked us about the reality of some of the costs incurred thus far from outside lab work and doctors out of our insurance network as well as those costs unknown in our future with Noah’s health, equipment, home care and treatment. As a result, these friends want to help support our family financially. This is a collaborative effort and concern and we are truly humbled by the offer. I am especially blown by the friends heading up the coordination of this, one of which is Laura Huene, who 5 days prior to Noah’s grand arrival on June 10th, delivered her 4th child, a beautiful baby girl named Pearl who within one hour on this earth headed quickly to her Father’s arms! You can read about Pearl and Laura and Josh’s journey in an article she wrote at:
Other friends have had multiple miscarriages and tragedies of their own! We are humbled that in the midst of their own pain and healing they are reaching out to us in this way. Anyway, we have set up a benefit fund at Wells Fargo for “Noah Steven Graves”. Any further inquiries from this point will be fielded by Laura.
Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in knowing more about her desire to fund raise for Noah. In the subject line of the email, please put “Noah Steven” and she will respond to you as soon as she can.
Jason and I are beside ourselves with this offer. We admit we cannot do this alone, just as we haven’t from the beginning. We can constantly feel your support through prayer, visits, letters, meals, calls, emails and encouragement. “Thank you” is truly inadequate, but we mean it from our deepest hearts!
