Metro Detroit & Oakland County Spartans Adopt a Family
Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at 1:00 AM - Friday, December 16, 2016 at 1:00 AM (EST)
Our fellow alumna graduated in 2000 from Michigan State University and was on her way to obtaining a successful future. She became married, started a career, and settled her new foundation. Her and her husband started a family. As their family grew they learned that unfortunately three of her four children were diagnosed with sickle cell disease. Additionally, two out of the three with the sickle cell were also diagnosed with autism. With ailing children she had to leave her job to provide constant care to her children. During this process of trying to provide care to her children, unfortunately, she has not received support from her husband in which they are going through final stages of finalizing their divorce. Most often, she has to stay home with her children who are sometimes in constant unbearable pain. Between speech pathology appointments, doctor appointments, homeschooling, to a certain degree with assistance from the school that her children attend, it has been a challenge these few years to maintain a comfortable and stable home for herself and her children, especially without any reliable transportation.
We are humbly asking for fellow Spartans, friends, and family to assist us adopt-a-family. We are asking for your support through the method of donation. We have received a wish list from the family and we want to help this family experience an awesome holiday season but also have some support for days thereafter. Please donate whatever you are able to at this time. All donations will be graciously appreciated! Remember there is not an amount that is to small. In efforts to provide the items during the Christmas holiday please make your donations by December 16. 2016. We will provide an update regarding the items we were able to purchase with your support to help this family during this holiday season. All proceeds received will be provided to this Spartan family.
Thank you for your support.
