一个青少年的错误文字如何导致数千美元捐赠给一个白血病的男孩

更多故事:

“Almost exactly a month ago, I was at home taking care of my 5 children when I received a text from a number I didn’t recognize. Having recently attained my realtor’s license, I didn’t think much of it as I anticipated receiving calls and texts from unknown numbers with this profession. I opened up the text to see a young lady in a dress asking for an opinion on how she looked. We moved to Spring Hill, Tennessee, in October, and being a realtor, I had decided having a local number would make more sense. Apparently this phone number is a recycled number because this wasn’t the first text, or phone call, I had received from someone expecting someone else to be the recipient.

由于这位年轻女士要求发表意见,所以我认为我会借此机会尝试做她的一天!我把孩子们聚集在一起,向他们展示了穿着衣服的小姐的照片。我问他们是否认为她穿着衣服看起来很漂亮,我们都同意她看起来很漂亮。因此,我问他们是否想玩一些乐趣,并给她发送一张照片,给她两个大拇指!每个人都在船上!我说服他们挤在一起以适合图片(这可能是迫使他们有时彼此接近的挑战,哈哈),给了两个大拇指,然后我拍了照片并将其送走了!当我的妻子与Kaizler从化学疗法中回家时,我向她展示了文字对话。她同意这是一个可爱的互动,并认为这张照片是个好主意。我们从未收到(当时)的响应消息,因此我对此并没有更多的思考。

快进到3月8日,这位在我们的Facebook小组Carlie Perkins的小姐发布了Syd的朋友Mandi Miller的这款推文的屏幕截图,该推文正在起飞,显然包括我的孩子。屏幕截图显示了衣服上女孩的照片,我立即知道这是什么。我想,‘哦,这很酷!孩子们很有名!’在我指出的那时,这条推文有18,000多个喜欢和2,000多个转发。我认为这意味着我们是病毒的。仅供参考,除非有60,000或更多喜欢,否则显然不会被视为病毒,或者每张Google的转发率为80,000或更多。因此,我很快了解了什么风险!

I thought it was really cool that this was gaining traction and I thought, ‘Hey, I’m gonna say hello!’ So I tweeted a hello response telling Mandi hi and how I found out about it. That’s when things got crazy. This gentleman named i.l.l.u.m.i.n..N.a.u.g.h.t.y on Twitter (whom I now know is a super kind man from India) joined my son’s Facebook group and took the initiative to post hisGoFundMe链接。几个人,包括illuminaughty,哈哈d asked for a thumbs up from Kaizler. So, I thanked him for his consideration and posted a picture of Kaizler giving a thumbs up.

我们观看了赞和转发的成倍增长。我们告诉孩子们他们很有名,尽管他们认为这很酷,但我们并没有得到很大的回应,主要是因为他们不完全知道Twitter是什么。较大的孩子听说过它,但我们试图使他们在社交媒体这样的事情上有限。在观看所有这些都非常酷时,真正震惊的是我们的GoFundMe帐户的成长。捐款开始进来,我和我的妻子对人们的慷慨大度感到惊讶。我记得在推特上发布了有关GoFundMe如何获得$ 1,000的推文!我们非常兴奋 - 在当前情况下,1,000美元对我们来说将是一件大事。它不止于此。

在24小时内,人们在过去26个月前收到的东西增加了一倍以上(约合2,000美元以上)!昨晚,我在Kaizler的Facebook Group上提供了一条消息,谈论我们如何满足并超出了10,000美元的目标。我们的思想被吹了,眼泪不止一次。截至我输入此故事时,我们的GoFundMe售价为26,461美元。

I can’t even begin to tell you what this means to us, what this meansforus. We have an amazing support of friends and family. The prayers have been non-stop, people have given their time and energy to help us in whatever ways they can. I am humbled by the generosity and outpouring of love we have received by the people we know, and by people we’ve never even met.

To give you some background, Kaizler was diagnosed in 2015. Kaizler was acting lethargic and he had a temperature off and on. We didn’t go to the doctor right away because we assumed he was just sick, and sickness is no stranger to a home with 6 kids. After a day or two, my wife decided she better get him checked out because he was beginning to look pale. We took him to his Primary Care Physician at that time, Jennifer Sevier. Jennifer is our hero. A lot of times physicians don’t catch these things because they just take some symptoms, try to treat them, and if that doesn’t work, then they dig deeper. Not Jennifer. She could tell it wasn’t an ear infection and he tested negative for the flu, so she requested blood work immediately.

We got a call a little after that saying that we needed to take him to Bothwell Hospital in Sedalia, Missouri, to run labs because they thought he was anemic. A couple hours after that, the hospital called and advised us to take him to Children’s Mercy ASAP. They told us that he either had a severe viral infection, or he had Leukemia. We have never prayed so hard for a severe viral infection in our lives.

圣诞节前夕的第二天,我们被告知我们的小男孩患有白血病。从那时起,就进行了一些重大试验。由于IgG水平较低而导致的几次肺炎住院,沉默的癫痫发作导致他在2016年处于生命状态。尽管如此,我们知道上帝与我们同在。他几次向我们展示了自己,我们相信他会让我们度过难关。

Kaizler is at a chemo clinic today. He had to make up for one of his missed LP’s (Spinal Tap) today. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all the love and support. We are humbled by everyone’s response to this situation. It’s amazing, that something as simple as a little text, can turn into a life changing event. God bless all of you.”
