Seeking A Miracle for Baby Elias
March 27, 2018
It always breaks our hearts when we see children suffering, then came baby Elias who at 8 months old needs a new Immune System. At an age where he should be learning to eat, sleep, laugh & cry, this precious little baby is already fighting for his life.
Miracles come in many shapes and forms (that's often why people neglect to see them when they happen). A prayer and kind word can bring faith, courage and comfort to someone who is suffering - but it is still a gift to offer such compassion. But YOU could be that miracle, all it takes is a minute of your time to find out if you are the one to save the life of someone so innocent. We would like to see Elias story go viral because it is our obligation to take care of our own.
Elias is diagnosed with a rare immunity disorder but all he needs is the tiniest amount of marrow to live a full and healthy life.
Please go to the link to find out what you can do to help. On April 1st at St Andrew's Greek Orthodox Church (5649 N Sheridan Rd, Chicago, Illinois 60660) there will be a drive. For those of you who cannot make it, there will be a booth set up at the Hellenic Parade near the museum, please stop by and speak to the family and offer your support.
