I've been following along with Emily Meyers' blog, The Freckled Fox, for a few years now and I've always admired her. She's a fantastic mother to her 5 little ones, all under the age of 6 mind you, and a loving, devoted wife to her husband Martin.
About a year ago Emily came out with a post on her blog letting everyone know that Martin had been diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. You can read her post about it HERE. So I don't know about you but I struggle with balancing having two under two. Emily and Martin have 5 under 6. And he has stage 4 melanoma. I can't imagine having my little ones and I wondering what the future might bring without my husband and their father. The more updates I hear from Emily on her blog and on her Instagram (@thefreckledfox) the more my heart aches. I just can't fathom it. She's always so strong and so positive. I hope we can help them.
They've been traveling back and forth from Idaho to Mexico and also to Texas for treatment. Martin is not working because he's in so much pain from the growing tumor in his liver so their only income is Emily's blog. But here's the catch, because Martin is in so much pain, Emily spends all her time either taking care of the kids or tending to him instead of blogging too much. I don't really know how she has a free second to lift a piece of toast to her mouth but she gets the job done and manages to keep all of her followers in the loop too.
So here is how we can help!
You can donate to their You Caring fund (set up by a friend) by clicking
Their goal is $50,000 and so far, as of May 24th, they've reached almost $12,000. They need more help! And I know we can do it. Please SHARE their You Caring link across your social media to spread the word! Also use the hashtag
They are as sweet and kind as the day is long and if anyone deserves a helping hand it's Emily and Martin. So please donate if you can. If you can't help financially please pray for this family. Like I've said a few times already, as a wife and mother of little ones I just...cannot cannot cannot imagine what they're going through.
