This all comes during a time when we are being faced with potentially having to move from the home we have been renting. As you can imagine with all the new medical items, the daily issues, and the stress of a move things are a little over the top. As always we turn to faith and Elias' smile and progress to get us through the toughest of times. Elias' Grandmother has started a campaign to either help offset costs of a move or more importantly try and reach a goal where we would not have to leave this home, by raising enough to purchase it. This is what Grandma posted on Facebook this morning:
If you have ever thought, "I wish there was something I could do to help..." I started this site to help raise money to offset the cost of their impending move. However the search for a healthy stable environment has been surprisingly and disappointing difficult. Many times they are not getting return calls to view properties, there is not air conditioning or other amenities necessary for Elias' health. So the focus is to try and raise enough money to try and keep Elias in the home they are in. The owner wants it on the market for sale by Sept 1st so our time is limited. I chose the site to fund raise because of a successful campaign to send a woman how had been bullied on a bus on a vacation. It raised $750,000 in a few weeks. If there are people out there that will support that wonderful cause, surely they would see the value of supporting this. Please share this and pass it on by all means that you have. All your social networks (facebook, twitter, pintrest, etc.) email, if you have a blog consider posting it on there and of course, word of mouth. Thank you
Our landlord has been a gracious one and extremely kind and helpful over the past few years. However, he is faced with having to put the house on the market. Time is limited, as he needs to put the house up by the beginning of September. We have been looking and we have been very surprised and disheartened by what we have found. We have also been frustrated by places advertising rentals not returning calls.

As always, your support, thoughts, prayers and efforts are greatly appreciated.
