So it took me a week - so what! hahahaha! really I did mean to update sooner! But for all of those that have been waiting to hear about March of Dimes - let this be a lesson to you - next year you must particiapte! Except you Natalie - I owe you an apology! You were an AMAZING team member and I should have emailed you sooner! But I have things to send you so don't worry!
first I must say I LOVE YOU ALL! Thank you for all you did for MARCH OF DIMES! are you ready for this?
Just under 100 TEAM MEMBERS on Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital TEAM KYLE! some of you walked, some of you fund raised, and some of you did both! Thank you Thank you Thank you! and are you ready for MORE....
We raised almost $4000 for March of Dimes. and this is just year one guys! Do you know that March of Dimes funded the researcher in the 1980s that came up with artificial surfactant? That is what they put in kyle's lungs that worked to get them to pop open! Thank you Thank you Thank you for helping us help them to keep the research going!
Here is a pic of almost all of our walkers and I will post more soon! This was at the beginning so not quite all of us where there yet!
- John and Kelly
- This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.
