I am so happy to be able to provide you with a very positive update on what has happened with this situation. My school in Canada, Cole Harbour District High School, the Rotary Club of Dartmouth East, and the Kiwanis Club of Winter`Springs in Oviedo, FL decided to take this head on and raise as much money as possible for this student, and I am so moved and appreciative of everyone's effort and commitment to help. I am ecstatic to report that there is now more than enough to pay for his operation, and the extra money will be able to go to paying for any post-operative medications and costs that he will incur. I want to personally thank all of you who have been involved and have donated for this cause...I cannot find the words to express how much I appreciate everything you all have done!
When I told the family this news, they all burst into tears and hugged each other and me. They are so relieved and thankful for this enormous generosity, and they wanted me to try to express their gratitude to all who have helped...although I don't think it is possible to put it into words! They told me that they can't believe that I know so many angels in Canada who have answered their prayers to God, and that they want to thank each and every person who did something to help.
So with this good news, we are moving forward immediately - I am going with the family this week for an appointment to see the specialist at the hospital in the capital, and I believe the surgery will be scheduled for as soon as possible. I will be keeping everyone updated on when the operation is going to take place!
THANK YOU AGAIN EVERYONE FOR SAVING THIS LITTLE BOY'S LIFE!!
