Many of you have felt the struggle of missing a day of work to care for a sick child. But most could never imagine the toll it would take physically, emotionally and financially, to move into the hospital with their child; waiting for over 200 days for a heart donor, and praying the clock didn't run out before one came along. Our friends Mike and Erica Schultz had to do just that. Thank goodness for them, on March 3, 2017, their five year old son Ari "Danger" Schultz recevied the most precious gift - his new super heroic heart. But it's not just back to normal for this incredibly strong family. The new battle will be long, and they will most certainly endure an incredible financial burden as they focus on getting Ari the care he needs, while they also raise their two younger children.
Please donate to Ari's Medical Fund to support the Schultz family during this time.

Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
