Fate brought us together, or so it seems in the meeting of the Cox family. Back in October, Terry and I visited the Ronald MacDonald House at the A.I. DuPont Children’s Hospital with the First State Corvette Club. While everyone was preparing breakfast I went from table to table talking with the families and giving hats and toys to the kids. All of the families were so nice and dispite their situations, were happy just to be with their families. One of those families was the Cox family from Kentucky. We had just returned from a trip to Kentucky so we had a lot to talk about.
In April the Corvette Club returned to the house to prepare breakfast. As I walked into the dining room a familiar face caught my attention, it was Shirley. We were instantly drawn to each other like two long lost friends. Tony and Shirley bring their children, Ethan and Jewell to the hospital for treatment several times a year, sometimes staying two or three weeks at a time. In our earlier visit they talked about the hardships of medical bills and keeping a job when you have to take off so much time from work. People have no idea what these families go through. The Cox family will be returning to Delaware in June and we are hoping to make plans for an enjoyable visit. Ethan and Jewell are hoping to visit our horses and maybe take a ride. Riding lessons are very expensive, they average $25.00 an hour. Theraputic riding programs cost double and sometimes triple that amount. Terry and I are excited about our future visit with the Cox family. I forsee a long friendship in the making!
