THE STORY:

There is a little boy who lives in California. The town he lives in is so small that he thinks he lives in Radiator Springs. He was born too soon, too small and too sick. The doctors prepared his family to expect the worst. Four years later he is still too small and on many occasions too sick. But, he is still with us. He is a delightful, funny, loving child. A warrior in a tiny body. A tiny body with a feeding tube. A feeding tube that requires all of his food processed into a thin liquid. A family who needs a very expensive food processor. A food processor that the insurance company said no to. Because? Because they could. I'm his grandmother. His only living grandmother who promised his other grandmother that she would do everything in her power to keep him alive. I buy a part of his multitude of expensive medical supplies. His dad works seven days a week, sleeps in his car at work and misses his sons. They need $1000 to buy the special equipment and some other supplies to keep him alive. Any and all acts of kindness will be appreciated and not forgotten. With my thanks. Grandmom, AKA Ironmema.
