A Family in Need
It’s never to early to start planning for the up coming holidays. This year Morgantown Dental Group has decided to “adopt” a family for Christmas. With permission from them, we would like to share their story with you.
Connie and Arthur have been married for almost 18 years and together they have four sons. Connie, age 38, was recently diagnosed with a rare incurable cancer. She has been told by doctors that they can not make her better. She is undergoing Chemotherapy and trying to stay strong for her family. Connie is a stay at home mom and loves her kids more than anything.
We would like them to have the best possible Christmas. We would like to ease the stress of Christmas shopping. A friend of Connie’s asked her to have each boy create an Amazon wish list. We would like to share these lists and try to make some wishes come true. The lists vary but are true wishes from the kids themselves. They do not have high expectations and would greatly appreciate any gift.
The four boys all love animals and the outdoors. As you may notice on the wish lists a couple of them wished for gifts for their pets. The boys are very active and participate in various extracurricular activities such as 4H, band, cross country, and basketball. Connie said all the boys like to wear hoodies.
If you would like to help, here is a list of ways to do so:
1) Share their story
2) Select something from the Amazon wish lists and it will direct ship to their home
3) If you wish to get them a gift from somewhere else, gifts can be left at Morgantown Dental Group during business hours. Gifts do not have to be wrapped. Gift cards that could be used for groceries or other necessities would also be appreciated.
4) Cards of Hope can be sent:
C/O Morgantown Dental Group
142 High Street
Morgantown, WV 26505

Nathaniel is 17. He wears size adult large shirts, 30x30 pants, and size 11-12 men’s shoes. He was hesitant to make a list because he is more concerned about his mom and younger brothers, but we would still like to see him enjoy Christmas also. Here is his wish list:
