"This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone."
Early in the morning we all gathered, family and friends alike, to surprise and incredibly deserving family with their Christmas wish. Eric Diaz, a husband and loving father of three small children, was recently diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Their wish this year was to make memories together - something they can cherish and hold onto forever. We were contacted about this story and immediately wanted to do everything we could to help.
Words can not describe the experience we had that day and all the emotion felt by all. But seeing so many people come together for this one amazing family and do everything they could to help is so beautiful. And to see this family be so incredibly strong and incredibly kind in the midst of everything was awe-inspiring. I can not wrap my mind around what this family is going through and yet they continue to be genuinely good people. In just the few minutes were were able to spend with the Diaz family, it was overwhelming how grateful and kind they were. Just welcomed us all into their home - it felt like you had known them forever and instantly wanted to be their friend. We were so grateful to do our small part in helping this amazingly awesome family get their Christmas wish.
Here is a short little video we threw together with some moments from that incredible morning.
Merry Christmas Diaz family! They are in Disneyland as we speak making those magical memories. This experience is something I will never forget and I am continued to be amazed by this incredible family. They embody what Christmas is all about - love and family.
