We are Darrel & Lindy Ashmore. We have two children that were diagnosed and born with two of the worst congenital diseases when it comes to survival rates. Tristen was born with HLHS, meaning he only has half of his heart and our daughter Elliot was born with Right-Sided CDH, leaving her without a full set of lungs. They went through extremely invasive surgical procedures and massive repairs including open heart surgeries and several invitro while still in the womb. They are 8 & 14 now and doing well, thank God. But, in the worst of times, it was financially devastating on our family. Now a dream more than 10 years in the making has finally come to life! Our non-profit is here to help parents going through similar struggles to pay their day to day bills.
We know what it feels like to watch our car get re-possessed in front of our workplace. To come home and have the lights off. To flat out struggle because of not working for extended periods of time while being hours away in a hospital, watching our child fight for every day of their life. No parent should have to worry about day to bills while their life is on hold, scared for their child, scared of the hospital bills, scared of not being able to provide for the rest of their family.
That's where we want to help, to come in and pay those bills. Whether it's rent/mortgage, PG&E, gas cards, car payment, whatever the need is. We're asking for your help to help these families in need and thank you in advance for your help, love, support, and prayers!!!
Palm trees are proven to grow stronger & taller with every storm they survive. God designed them to bend with strong winds, rather than break against them. it makes a fitting logo for families facing their own storms.
Tucked into each hat, beanie, and blanket is a piece of scripture that we stand on as a foundation, Isaiah 43:2. God tells us “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.” Even when it feels like the storm is never going to pass, that the heavy waves just keep crashing over and over, we know that God is there with us, helping us to Tread Water.
