Here’s the latest weekly update on the Ewart Family. In the early morning on Tuesday, December 20th, fire destroyed their Valencia home. Six family members were in the house at the time, three were seriously injured and sent to the Grossman Burn Center. David & Michael Ewart were the most seriously injured. David was the final family member to be released from the Grossman Burn Center, weeks after the fire. Since the fire, our Valley has jumped in to assist as the Ewart’s recover. This is the latest update courtesy of neighbors, Josy and Steve Block.
David and Michael are continuing along their road to recovery. They are enjoying the love & support they are receiving from friends near & far. They are working diligently on their physical therapy sessions and are both in an excellent frame of mind. Your continued prayers for their strength, stamina and determination are very much appreciated.
* Updates to the Website: www.EwartAid.org We have added our "thanks" to all the many, many folks who are helping with our effort to help the Ewarts get back on their feet. We are so genuinely touched by your generosity, it is difficult to find the words to express our thanks, but each and everyone of you have a special place in our hearts!! We have tried very hard to keep track of all the nice things you have done, so if you go to the website and do not see your name, please, please, please drop us a note so we can add you. We don’t want anyone to feel left out, but as we’re sure you can imagine, it is a daunting task to keep up with the outpouring. LOL. We are hoping to have the other website improvements (calendar, contacts, photos, flyers) up within the next week.
