Please pray for Carter Stiles

It is always heartbreaking when we hear about precious babies and children suffering from some type of illness or disease.  A dear sweet friend of ours, has a son who was recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis.  Carter Stiles is only 2 years old, and he faces a life time of dealing with this.  Please read the following letter from his precious mama, Brandy.  Pray for the family, pray for Carter, and pray that this terrible disease will be cured!

Dear Family & Friends,

As many of you know, our son Carter age 2, suffers from a rare autoimmune disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (“EE”). Kids with EE are quite literally allergic to food. The proteins in food cause a build up in the digestive tract and blood of a white blood cell called an eosinophil. Eosinophils are meant to attack parasites, but the body of a child with EE mistakes food for a parasite. As a result, the build up of eosinophils
cause numerous and very serious health problems, including, failure to grow and thrive, uncontrollable vomiting, severe stomach and throat pain, inability to sleep, joint pain, just to name a few. Many kids with EE can only eat 1 or 2 foods and have a feeding tube to survive. CURED is a charity that I am actively involved with that raises money to find a cure for EE. CURED has donated over $2 million to research over the past 6 years. CURED has begun a $1 challenge. We are looking to find 500,000 people to each donate $1 or
more to CURED, since that is something that almost everyone can do in these hard economic times. If you are interested in donating, please write

      Carter Stiles on your donation and mail it to CURED at P.O. Box 32, Lincolnshire, IL 60069. or go to http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.curedfoundation.org%2F&h=7f31a and make a donation via pay pal. Furthermore, if you wish to go even a step further, please forward this email to your family and friends. The more we get the word out there, the morelikely it will be that we will reach our goal. Thanks for your help!!!
