We spent Thanksgiving eve-day roaming around Bates Nut Farm.
This was the first time I actually got to meet her children.
It was another moment in my life that impacted me. I cannot even begin to know what this family is going through. Here is a little about their story.
This is the story of Caleb. Caleb is 16 years old, but he doesn’t look like it as you see his pictures. Caleb is not physically well.
Caleb was born with a condition called Cystic Fibrosis. It’s a genetic disease that affects mostly the lungs but also the pancreas, liver, and intestine. Difficulty breathing is the most serious symptom and results from frequent lung infections. Sometimes, lung transplants are necessary–in this case Caleb needs it, but his chances are slim at this point. If Caleb does not get the lung transplant, the inevitable will happen.
