T+29 She’s out! Thank you to the Liv It Up community!!! The support from each and every one of you made this day possible!
As most of you know Olivia's journey still has a long way to go, but she has cleared a major hurdle! She has been released from the hospital today!!!
First and foremost we want to give glory to God for healing Olivia to this point and for the strength and perseverance he has given her. We ask that God continue to be with Liv over the next weeks, months and years!
We want to thank everyone who has prayed, followed, and emotionally supported Liv and our family during this time! Your support means the world to us and has made this journey so much more bearable.
We also want to thank everyone who supported us financially. The support from the community was nothing short of amazing! From the $1 donation to the $50,000 donation we will forever be grateful! There are so many people to thank that helped to make the Liv It Up campaign a success. Friends and family that helped organize and bring to life the Liv It Up campaign, things came together so fast and furious, it was a major amount of work. Friends that organized, planned and worked so hard for the Angola block party and the Sylvan Cellars event. So many more people that pulled together countless other events and fundraisers. Many of you gave so much more than money, you gave your time, you gave yourself! We could start naming so many people personally that we are forever indebted to but we know we would forget to mention someone. Know that every single person who has had anything to do with the support for Liv and the Liv It Up campaign will always have a special place in our hearts. We have been called to forever work to pay your generosity forward!
As parents when we meet the parents of other kids with a terrible illness we have an instant connection, we are all part of the same “club”. None of us asked to join this club but if the illness selects you, you’re in. We all have an understanding of the battles we face as a family. We have certainly seen through the journey with Liv there are far too many kids that have to fight the battle. The cool thing is they all fight with a smile on their face! Liv It Up has the opportunity to make things just a little bit easier for some families to fight the battle! Trust us when we say it can have a big impact!
The Liv It Up campaign has been blessed far beyond the needs of Liv thanks to your generosity! We have a committee setup to work through a process to get the extra money to other kids and families fighting chronic illnesses. Please pray that this process puts the money where God sees the best use. Liv It Up still has big things ahead, thank you for your support and we ask that you continue to support Liv It Up! We’re not done yet!!!
Prayer warriors please keep the prayers rolling, Liv still has a long journey to travel and Liv It Up has a lot of work to be done!
To everyone that is a part of the Liv It Up community, please accept our sincerest “Thank You” for the blessing you have given our family!!!
Tom, Megan, Olivia, Evelyn, Preston Stoy
The entire Stoy and Tyler Families
