Everyone for Ethan
On the evening of November 6th, Gina and I attended a benefit for Ethan Brons. Ethan is a 21 month old boy who is suffering from an extremely rare disease called Periodic Fever Syndrome. Below is part a letter from Ethan’s family that was written in a local paper.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all involved in planning, organizing, executing, attending and involved in any way with the fund-raiser for our son Ethan. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude for the incredible outpouring support from the community, family, friends, coworkers, acquaintances and even strangers! Your support means more than you will ever know. A few hundred people came together in support of our little man…We are still AMAZED!
We feel truly blessed to have such unbelievable people supporting us.
With deepest Gratitude,
The Brons Family, Rich, Michele, Taylor and Ethan
This was not only an incredible event for Ethan and his family, but also for everyone who participated and attended. The magnificence of community can never be underestimated. Everyone came together as one.
Without a doubt, giving of ourselves is the one activity that makes us realize that we’re all connected and it’s that connection that plays a big part in making the world wonderful. I believe that everyone walked away from that event with love and joy in their hearts, not only for Ethan and his family, but for themselves as well.
