Hello everyone, Last Christ…
Hello everyone,

Last Christmas was a rough one for my family. Dad refused to leave his bed, there were lots of tears, and the house was clouded with anger, frustration, and sadness. We all thought it was going to be our last Christmas with dad, and it led to a very heavy holiday.

The fact that we are all together again for this Christmas is nothing short of a miracle. That being said, it has been a tough year as dad's health continues to decline. However, we're doing our best to keep our spirits up, and yesterday could not have been more different than last Christmas!

It was a happy and cheery morning unwrapping gifts, and once every present under the tree was gone, I handed mom an envelope with a card I wrote presenting her the results of the fundraiser. As expected, she sobbed in disbelief. We then told dad what the card said, and he began crying as well. They both thanked us and continued to cry due to the generosity of all of you.

Relief washed over us all knowing that help is on the way. As of today, we raised enough money to give mom approximately 161 nights of sleep, a gift more precious than you could ever imagine.

I want to thank you all for your unsurpassed generosity, and for taking the time to send us well wishes during the busy holiday season. Your collective efforts created something tremendous, and I cannot express how grateful I am to receive a response like this.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday season, hug the person next to you, and sleep well knowing you are giving the ultimate gift to our family.

Love,

Gabby
