Wants to give back…Won’t you help?!
‘Tis the season for giving…at Divinity, we have been incredibly blessed this year & we owe it all to our VERY BEST patients!
Once again, we’d like to give back to both YOU & an incredible family this holiday.
Meet the Ehrman family! Two years ago, if you asked mom, Heather, she would have said life was pretty perfect. She, a Pasco County school teacher, her husband, and their 3 amazing kids had just moved into a new home – after overcoming many obstacles, she finally felt like they were “normal” and happy. Unfortunately, that feeling was short lived when just a few months later, their youngest daughter, Anya was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L) on November 3, 2014 at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa. She began chemo immediately, with a grueling treatment plan that would last 2 ½ years.
The stress of Anya’s diagnosis proved to have dire consequences on the Ehrman family, and Heather found herself going from a 2 parent, 2 income household, to a 1 parent, NO income home within just a few months. Anya needed round the clock care, so working was out of the question for Heather – they lost everything – but through the Grace of God and help from others, this family has manage to stick together and fight this battle head on.
Two years later, Anya, often referred to by family and friends as the 5 year old Warrior Princess, is still fighting. Her treatments are tough, but she is tougher. She struggles with constant pain, nausea and fatigue. She needs to have a sterile environment because her immune system has been so compromised – some days it takes this poor baby all her effort to get out of bed and yet she is still filled with love and laughter. Heather said, “Although each day brings it’s own trials, and I am not always ‘happy’ with the way life is going ~ I have chosen to look at each one as a way that God can speak into my life and the lives of my kids. My kids, in turn, have taught me that no matter what is removed from our lives – that the only thing that truly matters is that we have God & one another… and we have held tighter to that truth more than ever before throughout this journey.”
This family’s struggle is far from over. They have to travel daily to Tampa for hospital visits and are in need of gas. They also need constant cleaning supplies, as well as food and clothing. Our desire is to help the Ehrman’s this Christmas – it’s especially important to Holly, as she and Heather are childhood friends, so Anya’s story is special to us at Divinity.
