JOY DAY RECIPIENT - POWERS FAMILY - NOVEMBER 2019

Auggie Powers

I’d like to introduce you to Auggie, who is 6, his sister Emerson, who is 4 and his mama Libby. 


Auggie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Christmas morning 2016. He was 3 at the time and the treatment for ALL is just over 3 years for boys. 


Auggie started kindergarten this year but has had to miss a lot of school because of an infection. He has really been struggling with this infection in his toe since April, that won’t heal because of his immune system being so compromised. He also has developed a toxicity to one of the chemotherapy drugs, methotrexate, that is very important to his treatment protocol. 


When I spoke to mom, and she said that what would bring Auggie and their family the most JOY is a dog. So  I started working on searching for a dog that Auggie has been wanting, a golden doodle. As some of you know, an amazing, loving family out of Wright City donated Zoey for Sydney’s 8th birthday. Our friend Zabrina help me get in touch with this family again, and they have donated a beautiful golden doodle to Auggie and his family!

Thank you to Libby, Auggie’s mom for allowing us to give your family some JOY! 


Make sure you watch until the very end...because if you didn’t already know why we do this, you’ll know after hearing it in Auggie’s own words! ❤️❤️❤️
