Cole Family has special reason to support RMH

The Ronald McDonald House meant so much to this family of the little boy who battled against overwhelming odds and won and captured the hearts of a community. Now they ask the community to help them show gratitude for the tremendous kindness shown through the Ronald McDonald House.

We would like to encourage everyone to participate in the Ronald McDonald House Charities Wish List 2010 drive for Adair County.

In January 2009, our son, Jace, was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) and spent several weeks at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville.

Our family was fortunate enough to have a room at the Ronald McDonald House for almost six weeks.

I can't tell you how much of a blessing this was for our family. It allowed our 9-year-old daughter, Taylor, to be able to stay with us.

We had our own room, bath, place to store our things, access to laundry facilities and at least one hot meal each day.

The cost was $15 per day, but if a family could not afford this amount, they were allowed to stay for free.

Please take this opportunity to give to a such wonderful cause. You never know when some of your family or friends may need their services.

The Cole Family (Jamie, Tricia, Taylor & Jace)

Jacie Cole: An Adair County treasure

2010-10-07 - Photo Cole family album. Somerset, KY; Nashville, TN, and Columbia, KY
To look at him today, you'd never dream that Jace ever had a problem. He was walking with sister Taylor in Somerset in the Lake Cumberland Heart Walk, in the left hand photo. And that's Jace showing his million dollar smile on his first birthday, January 27, 2010, in the lower right photo. In the upper corner, however is from a time when prayers of an caring community and a superb medical team at Vanderbilt were pulling him through some of the toughest challenges any baby has faced. At the time, Tricia Cole, his mother remembers, the Ronald McDonald House in Nashville helped see the family through and let them be together. Now she's urging all Adair Countians to support the Ronald McDonald House in the Adair County RMH Wish List Drop Off on Thursday, October 17, 2010, with much badly needed supplies for the houses in Lexington and Louisville, KY.
