They say "it takes a village" or a community of people coming together for one cause to make a difference. Today we are asking you to be part of that village. If you visited CHKD or a few other cancer treatment facilities you may have met Louis Vanderslice - known as "Louie" or "Loudog" to those who were close to him. He was often dressed in a super hero costume running the halls - and that he truly was - a super hero - a warrior fighting a very hard battle. Louie was diagnosed in May 2015 with T-Cell ALL. He relapsed in October 2016 after 18 months of treatment. On March 7th at 3:30 a.m. - this sweet 3 year old traded his super hero powers for angelic wings with his parents by his side. No matter how much you plan as a parent you are never prepared for those last moments or the days following.
ADIPSY is asking for your help as we take some of the pressure off of this family by helping with funeral expenses. Any donation no matter how great or how small will be used towards helping the costs to make this a celebration of this young warrior - this super hero's life. Your generosity will take the pressure off of Louie's parents and allow them to be comforted by others during this very difficult time. When making a donation for this specific need please visit the www.Adipsy.org page and put "Louie" in "In Honor Of" box.Thank you in advance for helping us bless this family. #mt2535 #weareadipsy #ittakesavillage
