I just read the article and watched the videos on the news broadcast about my friend, John McDonald, who just lost his young daughter today.  I can’t even fathom how painful it must be for them today as they remove her from life support.

After she is gone, they not only will have to deal with the loss of their precious daughter, but the financial burdens from the expensive medical costs as well.

Below are some of the ways that you can join me in helping this family out in time of need:

  1. Pray for them
  2. Pay for them: if you go to this website, you can donate some money to cover some costs.  They need $50,000 and only have about $15,000 raised so far
  3. Encourage them: you can leave words of encouragement when you leave a donation.  Even if they don’t know you, I’m sure they will appreciate your kindness

In closing, if you have ever lost a son or a daughter, there was a very good talk by a Mormon General Authority given this past week in the October 2012 General Conference.  He shares a very touching story of losing his little son and sharing how he was able to rely on the Savior to help him through the trial.  The video is in the link below:
