For quite some time singer Jamie Grace has been vocal about the unfortunate health challenges her family is facing. She has asked for prayers for her mother before. This time, they are asking for even more support, opening a GoFundMe account.
Jamie’s father wrote:
‘Over the last 4 years my family has been dealing with a severe health crisis that has been difficult to fully understand and explain. The one thing we have been certain of is that we have felt your prayers and we are forever grateful.
The story that I tell actually reminds me of the blind man that was born blind. Jesus’ disciples asked the question,
‘who committed the sin, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?’ Jesus said, ‘Neither this man nor parents but that the works of God would be revealed.’
My wife, of 28 years, was born with a condition that is very rare in nature and character resulting in the lack of medical understanding to provide adequate treatment. My wife’s way of enduring the pain and suffering throughout her life has been the immeasurable
drive to give and sacrifice herself for the betterment and advancement of others in life without complaint. If you’ve ever known my wife for any length of time, you’ve either experienced the giving of herself or you have witnessed with your own eyes the experience
of others as they came in contact with her.
In this season of our lives as a family, the illness has exasperated to incomprehensible levels and the ability to seek and acquire medical attention has become limited in the Southern region that is most needed for her. We have sought over 18 hospitals, 130 medical professionals and countless ER visits, via the paramedics, seeking help for my wife with this very rare and uncommon condition which she has been in bought with since birth.
My beautiful wife and I have been blessed with two daughters. Morgan, and her husband Patrick, have been residing in Dallas, Texas while our youngest, Jamie Grace, recently moved into a home in Georgia. Even so, we have all decided to come together and relocate back home to California so that we can maximize our resources, care, and energy towards the betterment of my wife’s health and seek potential advanced medical care.
My prayer is that you have heard the heart of my story without it’s entirety for time is limited in affording me to write it on this screen. Further, my request to you is that you would consider supporting me and my family in the endeavor of seeking medical attention who has an interest in rare illnesses, concerned about the restoration of health and the retracting of a suitable quality of life. Please, Go Fund Me.
-Bishop James H. Harper’
