Mears Family Fundraiser-Can't Stop MP!
Organized by: Mears Family
July 26, 2016
My friend’s son Michael Paul (MP), has recently been diagnosed with Lymphoma in a tumor on his spine. He is an 8 year old boy whose world has just been turned upside down. I do not have the vocabulary to express the pain that comes with this diagnosis, but doctors are positive that the cancer is Lymphoma, not a leukemia and is highly treatable. MP will begin an intense chemotherapy treatment, as he already has his mediport (new buddy) set up and ready to go. Their oncologist has been incredibly encouraging and feels confident MP will be able to overcome this disease and come out even stronger on the other side. This meant the world for the family to hear. To see an 8 year old child feel so ill, and yet be so strong at the same time is overwhelmingly painful. His parents, Katie and Michael believe God has a plan for everyone and will be by his side until he beats the cancer. They remain strong for their other two children Claire and Luke who visit their brother every chance they can to raise his spirits. We all wish there was a magic wand to make it all better, but the reality is MP and his family are facing the challenge of a lifetime. They need all the support and prayers during this difficult time. We ask that you donate to their family to help with the financial burden of upcoming medical bills. Even $5 goes a long way in the scheme of things. We will continue to get updates from Katie and friends on his facebook page, Can’t Stop MP. Please continue to pray for their family during the long journey ahead.
