Galatians 6:2 - Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Not long ago I wrote about Canon Perkins, who had a liver transplant. Now, I am requesting prayers for another little boy named Canon. His name is Canon Norman. He is four years old. Canon had a heart transplant this past Saturday. Instead of doing school today, I helped a friend of mine (who knows Canon's mom) gather up information and create a blog for Canon.
Canon's mom, Carla, is a school teacher and a single mom. She is on two weeks of paid leave, but Canon may have an extended stay of up to six months in the hospital ahead of him; so she is needing help from anyone who can offer donations towards her son's heart transplant, medical costs, and her living expenses until she can return to work. She has two other children to care for also (Kamryn age 7 and Chase age 10).
Canon's story is touching. I hope you will click over and read about it on his new blog that Teresa and I created today. Although it is good that he has finally gotten the heart that he has awaited since birth (after numerous heart surgeries and other surgeries from his congenital heart defect); he is not out of the woods yet. Since the surgery, he has not been doing very well and all of us are very worried about him.
I hope that you will pray for Canon... and I thank you from the bottom of my heart if you do! May the Lord bless you tenfold.
