A Father’s Ride-Day 4

This entry was posted in Matthew and Andrew Foundation

Today we will ride the 74 miles between Vinita, OK and Joplin, MO. Today’s ride is dedicated to 6 year old Noah Bryant. Noah had a bone marrow transplant June 21. He is currently on a ventilator in the Cincinnati PICU after developing a fungal infection in his lungs. Our thoughts and prayers are with Noah and his family.

    I’m glad you are safe and sound so far on your journey. Watching these videos every morning certainly puts the rest of the day in perspective to say the least. I hope that each and every mile that you two ride brings some peace and closure. As a parent I can’t even imagine the journey that has brought you two together but I wish the both of you the best of luck. Keep your heads up and eyes on the finish.

    I wish I had something to give to those in need right now and to my family to help you threw this. So, I give my love and prayers. I miss Annie terribly and I miss the happiness in the heart of my family. I am thinking of you all and Annie and those you ride with and those in need right now. God bless you all and bring you comfort in some small way.
