A way to help Mathew Gliddon

There is really no worse feeling than helplessness when you love someone and you are watching them struggle. It hurts to see them hurt, you feel their pain and it just wrenches you inside to know that there is nothing that you can do. So we do the little bits that we can. We try to boost their spirits, we visit, we love them, we let them know that they’re never alone in their battle.

The Gliddon family is precious to me. Their son Mathew is every child, he represents every child that is battling cancer and deserves a chance at life. His second relapse is so devastating, it puts him in such a dire situation and we pray fervently for God’s power to heal his body, to provide the miraculous cure he needs.

As a way to do something, to feel like I’m helping in some way, I’ve put some items up in the Pootique on CafePress.com. There are some shirts in adult and kids sizes and buttons that show support and encouragement for the Gliddons by proudly proclaiming their eloquent mantra “We are strong. We are brave. We can do anything.”

They live by these words and we believe they can. All profits from the sales of these items will be donated directly to the Gliddon family to be used for Mathew. If you’d like to help, this is a way. if you’d like to make a direct donation, please contact the Children’s Cancer Center and let them know you’d like to make a donation for Mathew Gliddon, you can also do it online through their website through paypal, just make sure that you specify his name in the “notes” part of the transaction.

f.r.o.G…fully relying on God

    Hi Anissa,
    Sorry to hear of Peyton's tough week. My heart also breaks for Matthew and his family. I'll be praying for them. I loved the mantra, hence, bought the shirt for Kate and hope/pray it helps the Giddon's in their battles with this cancer. You're a good friend to do that for them. It's not enough to say we are praying and that we care, we need to be the prayer, too.

    Take care, love, basi
