An outstanding story and beautiful family...what a great (and challenging) example of dying to self that others might have life.

What a refreshing article! It's so rare to see something published that qualifies as "good news". More of the same would be a wonderful idea.

Great story but why is there even a need for such a situation to exist? That is, where were his parents and why on earth weren't they involved in his life and supportive of him? Spare me the usual poor me ain't it awful explanations or justifications, please!
