Caleb's Army rocked the 2012 Lights of Love 5K

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

- Coldplay, Fix You

2011 was a very hard year for us. Our third child, Caleb, was born with a condition called VACTERL association- he had problems with his spinal cord, was born with no anus, had minor cardiac issues, and very complex kidney/bladder problems. It is a rare and not well understood condition. As parents, as a family, we fought for him, seeking treatment both locally and at Cincinnati Children's Hospital over 1,000 miles away from our home in Austin.

A NICU stay.
4 surgeries.
6 hospitalizations.
4 ER visits.
All in 1 year. One year.
All for one sweet baby.

In the most difficult of times, away from home, days after surgery, dealing with complications...

the Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati was our LIGHT.

It lead us to our home away from home.

A place where we could not just sleep, but rest. A place where they didn't just feed us, but restored our spirit with strength, love, understanding, hope. A place where families stay together, fight together, and overcome together. All minutes from the hospital and ER that is your lifeline to your child. In a safe, caring environment where they look out for you because there, you're family. You're home.

Please DONATE or JOIN our team! Your donation will make a difference to families just like ours who are going through dark times, fighting for their child. We are forever indebted to the strangers whose donations and volunteer time helped us at the house in Cincinnati. We are grateful for the family, friends, co-workers and friends of friends who support Caleb's Army and our effort to give back that light and hope and home we were given.
