A Special Donation

The Hemispherectomy Foundation has been blessed to receive many donations, and many have touched our hearts, and physically touched the families that we serve all over the world. In the USA, Austrailia, Poland, Peru. Just recently we sent a care package to a child in the hospital in Ireland.

But what touches us the most often, is the very simple and small gifts, like the Lemonade Stand from months back.

This one is like that. The Foundation recently received a donation from a 1st grader at Stuard Elementary, named Max Davis. Max is a friend of Jessie's and was in her Kindergarten class (Ms. McGaugh) last year. Well Max decided that instead of gifts this year for his birthday, he wanted to raise money for Jessie and the Foundation. Can you imagine that! A first grader! And the note below is from another first grader, Greg McCann (sp?) that donated in Max's name. If that doesn't bring a tear to your eye, I don't know what will.

I was a grown man before I felt that kind of compassion, generosity, and selflessness. Boys, you are awesome and your parents just as much so for raising amazing kids.

Hat's off to all of you and God Bless from The Hemsipherectomy Foundation.

No wonder Jesus said we had to be like children to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. They have the purest hearts. What a blessing!

Max really was so excited to be able to give - and to make a difference. I showed him this blog entry and told him again how very proud of him we are - and proud of Jessie for all her hard work - and thankful for the opportunity to help in any way, big or small.
God's blessings on you all,

The Davis family
