Let's Help Give This Amazing Military Family Fighting Cancer a Real Christmas
Last year I shared my refugee work with you all, an Iraqi Family needed our Help getting Settled and Welcomed to the States, and that family with the wonderful pregnant mother and the 5 children was so blessed by you all. This Christmas I am sharing another Family that needs our help and our love. I want to tell you about the Fuller Family, they are a wonderful Military Family that is on a path that needs our Love, Prayers, Light and Support. Dad Adam serves our Country proudly and is now stationed in Kentucky. Their son AJ has been battling Medulloblastoma, brain cancer for over 4 years. He is a really special little boy, feisty, funny and really a Fighter. And his Big Sister Delainey, who they call Laine or Lainey is really amazing as well. AJ is 8 going on nine and Laine is 11 years old. For AJ's Cancer treatments he needs to travel all the way to Nashville, which is alot of gas money twice a month. ( They are a Military Family, money is very tight, and that Trip twice a month is really eating into the budget on all levels).
And the Reason I am blogging about them, is because there is no money for them to have a Christmas, and they are a family that is helping Serve Our Country, while AJ is Fighting Cancer. We Need to help them with their Battle Against Cancer, and we need to also help them have a Christmas as a Family. If you want to help you can email me to learn more. Any Money that is raised here on the Radio I am buying them Gas Cards and also Walmart Give Cards as that is the Closest Store to them and that way Mom can go pick out some Special Christmas goodies for AJ and Lainey. You can also follow me on Twitter @watergatesummer if you want to help Tweet This and raise money and support for them.
This is the Website that explains more of their situation ( written by Ann AJ's Mom, it is called the Caring Bridge.
This YouTube Video has more of their story, and was made my Ann and AJ to tell their story...that has gone on for over 4 years....
The Address is in the comments....

I want to thank Twitterland, AWOP Radio Listeners, and Watergate Summer readers:
Thank you all so so much, I was able to send Mom Ann a Walmart Gift card so she can go get Christmas goodies for Lainey and AJ and also some gas money. I sent it all off yesterday and some huge homemade cookies, and I also learned from Ann that others folks had sent goodness in the mail...I am humbled and so grateful that you all are so giving ....and generous....even in Hard Times. Thank you again.....
