Happy Christmas, Angela & Family!
Before the holiday season, Angela learned her husband James’ stomach and colon cancer had metastasized and spread, progressing much faster than expected. They began to prepare for the worst as James is not expected to live into the New Year. Angela and James are parents to two young children: a 20 month old daughter and a 10 month old son.
While this news took the very breath out of this small family, the medical bills continued to pile up and Angela began setting aside funds for funeral preparations. Nothing was left for Christmas though Angela was desperate to have one last holiday, as a family of four. That is when Angela heard about the Earls Fam Foundation’s Christmas Project. She quickly applied, requesting “anything to make my children feel like they had a Christmas with their Dad.”
Angela’s application was accepted and the Earls Fam Community members and the foundation joined together to send toys and clothing items for the children, as well as a few helpful items for Angela and James! Though Angela does not know what tomorrow will hold, she knows who holds tomorrow and is deeply thankful for the blessings of a Christmas shared together as a family.
While the family’s difficult times are far from over, the support and encouragement they received from the Earls Fam Community will strengthen each of them for the difficult path ahead. Thank you to all who made this Christmas miracle possible! Thank you for continued prayers for comfort, peace, and healing for Angela, James, and their young children. Prayers also for the strength to love God, love people, make a difference and be thankful.
