The Resiliency of the Human Spirit Can Be Amazing

by Andy Harris

Austin was just 3 years old when he came down with a rare form of meningitis.

To save his life, doctors had to remove his arms and legs.

I can't even begin to imagine how a young child and family process such a life-changing turn of events. But they do. And, I understand Austin, a few years removed from the illness and amputations, is doing well and is an extraordinary boy.

On July 26th, the 'Mettle Run' to build 'A Home For Austin' will take place. There is still time to participate and help! Find out all about Austin, the progress of the home, and the run by clicking HERE.
