Strike Out Cancer with Harrison

Steve McKinionUncategorizedLeave a Comment

My brother and his wife have been unbelievable during this terrible journey.  They, like SO MANY others, have made it possible to survive to this point as Ginger, Lachlan, Blakely, and I walk with our dear Harrison in his suffering.  I cannot tell you how blessed we are by them.

April, through her business Stitches by April, was responsible for the orange leukemia awareness ribbons I see on so many cars at Harrison’s school, as well as those on the varsity baseball helmets at North Raleigh Christian Academy.

They’ve done it again with t-shirts to raise funds for treatment and raise awareness for pediatric leukemia.  Knowing Harrison’s love for baseball, they have designed a t-shirt that joins that love with our passion to help Harrison kick this cancer in the teeth.

The design also includes a reference to a passage of Scripture that has been with us from day one.  Psalm 126, Providentially the reading from our church for the week of Harrison’s diagnosis, reminds us of our Triune God’s work on behalf of his people. There is likewise the petition that “the nations will say, the Lord has done great things for us, because the Lord has done great things.”  That’s our prayer.  The psalm ends with those who went out weeping returning in joy.  Amen.

They included the Twitter hashtag we’ve been using since the beginning to give updates and discussion Harrison’s battle.  The hashtag even trended on Twitter the night of Harrison’s stroke, bringing awareness both to his fight and to the needs of all families enduring pediatric cancer.

If you are able to purchase one (or more) of these shirts, we’d be so grateful.  And Harrison would love to see you wearing one.
