A childhood friend of mine, who is now married and has 5 sons and is a Chandler Police Officer could use our help. He was one of my best friends, growing up in church together. His older sister is married to my older brother. So, we're kind of like family.
Our church, Mesa First, has prayed for his son in the past. When they were expecting their fifth son they found out that he had what is called Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) They had to leave their four sons here with his in laws, and go to The University of Michigan, (where the Dr. best known for these kinds of surgery's is) for Shae to be born there, and four days after he was born he had his first heart surgery. And six months after that he had his second. Shae is turning four now, and they will be flying back to the University of Michigan for his third and hopefully final surgery.
This Saturday, August 2nd, Chick-fil-a in Chandler is hosting a fund raiser for their family. It's from 5-8 pm. At Chick-fil-a at Gilbert and Germann. Right off the 202. A portion of every order will go directly to the Veach family for Shae's surgery and their trip back to Michigan. They will also be selling raffle tickets for prizes that have been donated. So, please come and help out.
We will be there, and if you meet Scott and Shannon, (they should be easy to spot, they will, I'm sure, be the tallest couple there. He played football for ASU, and she played women's basketball there as well. And the funny thing is, is I was always taller than him when we were little!) Tell them Star sent you. I know a great turn out to this special event will really mean a lot to them, and hopefully take some of the financial burden off this very upsetting time. Thanks friends. Hope to see you there!
