Put yourself in someone else’s shoes

Ok, so, about three posts ago I blogged about my cousin Michael. If you read the blog you know that, Michael is 12, he has scoliosis, he is either in his wheelchair or in bed all day, he cannot speak with his mouth, he uses a iPad to communicate, you would also know that he needs treatment, and that his family has a fundraiser going on go fund me, a website that raises money for people who need it. His family have raised about $1,230 and their goal is $30,000. That’s how much the treatment costs. $30,000. Yes that’s a lot. And yes we have only raised $1,230.
But that is only because not a lot of people know about it. I want you to put yourself in Michaels parents shoes. Better yet, put yourself in Michaels shoes. Your in a wheelchair all day every day, wherever you go. You can’t speak. Your fed through a tube in your stomach because you cannot swallow, and the only thing that goes through that tube are homemade smoothies, water, and liquidated vitamins.
You cannot sit comfortably because you back is bent forward. You cannot hold anything with your hands. You have ten other siblings. You feel so helpless, yet your mom and dad have never given up. You bring joy into their lives. Just about the only thing you can do is smile or frown. And your in pain, every day, twenty four hours a day. If your mom doesn’t think you need something then you have to sit and sit and sit until your mother anticipates that you need something. Now back to who you are. You may not be able to end world hunger or make world peace or adopt a child. But I know and so do you that you can donate $5 to make one preteens life a whole lot easier. If everyone who follows my blog along with the people I know, donated $5 we would be at our goal. So please for the sake of the life of one child and for the love of his many family and friends, donate $5 and share this blog.
