A few months ago my uncle got sick, so sick he had to quit work. His symptoms were inexplicable by any doctor in his area. He and his wife did all the research they could, visited specialists, tried homeopathic treatments, prayed, nothing seemed to help. They have five little girls and at the time his wife was eight months pregnant with their first little boy. In his wife's very pregnant condition, and with the responsibility of tending to five children and a sick husband, she was barely able to catch her breath and sleep, let alone find a job.
That is when they heard about this "miracle" doctor. A regular doctor actually but one who specialized in treatment of a condition that expressed itself through similar symptoms to his. Unfortunately this particular type of specialist is few and far between and they had to make a trek across the country to visit with him.
They are now back on their feet and enjoying life again and looking back on the crisis I think they are able to feel the joy in the closeness it created as our family pulled together to help them stand again.
Everyone goes through times like this but often (just like in the case with my uncle) it takes too long for people to ask for help. I think other than feeling awkward, people sometimes just don't know how to ask.
GiveForward when my uncle and his family were experiencing these trials because it offers the perfect way to connect people with all the love and support they could need during financial crisis. To date GiveForward has helped raise over $100,000,000 for families in need.
Just think about the impact that has made. It is exciting!
