We're raising money to help a member of our SWFL Naples community. Here is her story and why she wants to honor her son Sawyer.
This Tuesday marks my son Sawyer’s 6th birthday. Only he’s not here with us on earth. I’m the mom of an angel. Our family lost sawyer in 2015 to a rare mitochondrial disease, hard to diagnose and incurable.
For parents who have lost a child, it’ hard to find a way to honor the day they were born. You don’t want to ignore it. You want the world to know your child existed and mattered, regardless of how many years have passed.
This year I finally feel I found a way to do this! My husband Josh Benson and I will be driving our “PinkyKnowsNaples” slidr around downtown Naples. Picking up and dropping off folks at different locations and collecting tips. Thank you @ www.slidr.com for your heart to give back . All tips from 4-9 will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospital
Sawyer spent time in All Children’s Hospital (www.cmnhospitals.org and www.jhmi.edu) and they took such good care of both him and us. We’re excited to give back to these great organizations who help so many! www.cmnhospitals.organd www.jhmi.edu #forthekids
62 Children every minute get life-saving treatment, families get the help they need or fund the greatest needs are being met.
Here’s an idea of where the money we collect will go:
$12 Preemie diaper packages, $90 Blood Pressure Monitor, ventilators, $500 fetal heart monitors, $2,000 pediatric wheelchair, and so much more!
We set this project up so that if you can’t make it, or you’re not local you have a way to give and be involved. Every little gift helps us remember and honor our #sweetsawyer If you see us around town – be sure to catch a ride or shout out to us! We’re honored to be a part of such a caring community!
The Benson Family
We've raised $977 thru text to give option so far!!! Thanks for your gifts! Please continue sharing our message and join us as we honor Sawyer.
