Two Adorable Boys With Their Handmade Creations by Amy

On September 3rd, 2013, my father-in-law, Fred Averitte or as our family and kiddos call him "Pappy", was diagnosed with Stage IV Small Cell Lung Cancer which spread(metastasized) to the liver which also left him with metastatic bone lesions His type of cancer is incurable and we were given a very short time frame, BUT Pappy is a fighter. He is unable to work and my mother-in-law had to quit working to become his full-time care taker. They have to drive on average 4 days a week for chemo treatments, BUT the cancer center is an hour away.

I will be hosting a Prayers for Pappy Auction on my business facebook page, fAveritte creations:
