Every year at this time we look for families that may need a hand up and try to make their Christmas a little brighter.  One of the things we will be doing this Christmas is making a special wish come true for a special little 6 year old boy named Anthony Taylor.  Anthony suffers from a rare disease called Mitochondrial Neurogastrointestinal Encephalopathy (M.N.G.I.E.).  There are only about 70 people with this disorder that has been reported.  Anthony is not expected to survive from anywhere to 6 months from now to 10 years old.  As you can imagine the toll this is taking on this family.  Anthony’s mother Erica, who is 30 years old also has a form of cancer and just had another surgery at MD Anderson last week.  Erica is a nurse at Herman Memorial in Houston and continues to work nights.  Erica lives with and is assisted by her parents to take care of 6 year old Anthony and 8 year old daughter Addison.

Brazoria County Cavalry will make Anthony an Honorary Cavalry Member, Sheriff Charles Wagner will make him a Honorary  Brazoria County Sheriffs Deputy and Wild Peach Volunteer Fire Department will make him an Honorary Firefighter.  We will have Santa on hand and we will provide some gifts for Anthony and Addison.  We plan on giving Anthony, Addison and Erica a ride on a motorcycle.  The Sheriffs Office will provide a Patrol Car with Wild Peach Volunteer Fire Department providing a Fire Truck.

You can help us make a difference to this family and to let them know that there are people like us who care.  This family has asked for nothing but prayers and has no idea what we have planned.  We will give them a Christmas to remember.

We know you will want to do more and below is how you can. 

Anthony loves Police cars, trucks, motorcycles, hot wheels and any board, handheld, card or dice games.  Games are very important because Anthony doesn’t have to exert himself to play them and he can take them to Texas Children’s Hospital.  Update… We have an anonymous person that donated an Xbox One Kinect for the kids. 

1. Show up.
2. Bring a gift for Anthony or Addison or both children for Christmas but not wrapped.  Any duplicated toy will be saved and used to provide for other children.  The games for Xbox One Kinect would be great.
3. Bring some food for the family.
4. Make a cash or check donation. If a check please make it payable to Erica Taylor and Contact Cavalry Founder Tracy Read @ 979-709-1598 or Cavalry Committee Member Susan Oltz @ 979-864-5876
5. Bring some cookies or something for those in attendance to snack on.
6. Bring an extra motorcycle helmet so the family can go on a motorcycle ride.  Anthony is only 35 pounds and will need a small helmet.

Whether you CAN OR CAN NOT attend this gift of giving and would like to make a donation or provide something please contact Cavalry Founder Tracy Read @ 979-709-1598 or Cavalry Committee Member Susan Oltz @ 979-864-5876 and we will make arrangements with you.  If you have an unwrapped GIFT to donate and would like to drop it off, please take it to Custom T-Shirts & Graphics located @ 114 South Brooks St/ Hwy 36 Brazoria TX.  Business # 979-798-9171.        Operating hours are Tues-Fri 10:00 am – 5:30 pm and Sat from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.  We ask that whatever your heart leads you to do please contact us or drop off items no later than  December 18th.

Cavalry Members know that there is no greater gift than the gift of giving to others as you have done for years.  Lets show this family what Christmas is all about.  Not ourselves, but others.

Below are the words of Erica Taylor.

“We are beyond words, grateful and excited for this!  I cant tell you how much I appreciate this.  This will be such an amazing experience and it will put a spark in Anthony’s eye!  I’m so grateful.  Once again thank you so much”

Please remember this.  It does not matter if you join us for 20 minutes or you stay as long as this family can.  What matters is that you were there to make a families Christmas special.  We ask that you be at staging at 12:30 pm.  The family will arrive at 1:00 pm.
