Opie’s Angels – Help For A Gulf War Vet [AUDIO]

Today we help a Gulf War Veteran and his family who are having a hard time this year.Dear Opie’s Angels,

I am nominating my husband and our family to be one of your angels this year. My husband is a Gulf War Vet. He recently found out that he has a liver disease and that he needs a liver transplant. He is unable to work due to many doctor appointments. We also have two boys (4 and 6). Our oldest song is disabled. He has Cerebral Palsy and Hydrocephalus.

We are both jobless right now and I take care of our disabled song and my husband has his appointments that take up the majority of our time. I have a hard time during this time of year personally because we aren’t able to give our boys a Christmas that they deserve. Any help you could offer our family would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Dear Angela,

We are so sorry to hear about your husband’s recent diagnosis. He is in our prayers that a liver donor will become available soon for him. Your kids are getting to the age that they can remember Christmas and are starting to notice other people’s celebrations and maybe how much their friends get compared to them.

As much as we know that it is more about the spirit than the amount of things you get under the tree, to a child, it is so much more than that. We would love to give you and your husband $200 to buy the kids some clothes and a few gifts for under the tree. We also know how difficult it must be for your husband to get back and forth to his doctor appointments without money for gas. We’re kicking in $100 in gas and we’d like to give you $150 for groceries so you can have a great family meal.

Good luck to you and your family and Merry Christmas,
Opie’s Angels
