Introducing the McCrory Family
We’ve been talking all about the 2nd Annual fab Pay it Forward Garage Sale that is quickly approaching… and we know it’ll be huge, so we decided to have YOU, our readers, nominate a 3rd family for us to donate to.
This decision was the easiest, yet most difficult decision to make. Easiest, because the sheer volume of nominations for the particular family we chose and their heart-wrenching story made choosing them a no brainer. And yet the decision was so difficult to make because choosing them meant we could not help any of the other nominated families in need that were so very deserving.
So while we are frustrated we could not choose every last family nominated, we hope once you hear about the McCrory family, you will join with us in supporting them.
Meet Cyrus, Jonie, Jackson, Thea and Elsa McCrory.
Last month, after suffering a seizure and being rushed to the ER, doctors found a stage 2 Astro Cytoma tumor on Cyrus’ brain. He has had two surgeries in the past month in attempts to remove the tumor. While both surgeries went well, they were not able to remove the entire tumor. His prognosis is uncertain. The next step is radiation.
Cyrus was self-employed, and they not only have no health insurance, but due to his condition he has obviously been unable to work. Their income has come to a screeching halt, leaving Jonie in charge of caring for three small children and an extremely sick husband, while attempting to stay afloat financially. That is a battle she will lose without help. And based on what the numerous emails we received said, he is a wonderful man very deserving of help:
“Jonie and Cyrus McCrory are the kind of people who would drop what they are doing to help anyone out. They genuinely care about people and have such kind, generous, and loving hearts.”
“(Cyrus) puts others before himself. He reaches out to the hurt and broken. He yields his rights and comforts so that others can receive blessings.”
“This precious family has blessed so many. His wisdom and gifts have been poured out into the lives of so many.”
So you asked us to help them, and we want to. But we can’t do it without you!! In order to help the McCrorys as well as Joan and Sean’s families, we need:
