Giving Hope to Those in Need...
Hi! I'm Julie Young. I am excited to share with you a little about myself and the journey my family has been on that led to the creation of Coleson's F.R.O.G. I am married to my husband of six years, Regi Young. We are a blended family with two daughters, Makynzi and Mackenzie. Yes we have two daughters with the same name! In 2007 we had our bouncing, baby boy, Coleson.
Life was typical family life for us. We enjoyed camping, traveling, and getting together with family and friends. Little did we know that on January 3, 2010, our life would be forever changed.
In December 2009, we traveled to Tennessee for a family vacation when Coleson started showing signs that something was wrong. We took him to two different doctors while on vacation, and neither knew what was going on. We decided to end our vacation and return to Fort Worth where we could take him to Cook Children's Hospital. In the few hours we waited at Cook's, Coleson under went a CT scan. After wards we were faced with the news no parent wants to hear. Our sweet baby boy at the age of two had a brain tumor.
Weeks later, Praise the Lord, they were able to go in and remove his tumor which was followed by seven weeks of Proton Radiation at M.D. Anderson in House. I am blessed to say Coleson is now a very ACTIVE 4 year old that we can hardly keep up with!
During this time of trial, frog themes were constantly in our path. Nothing happens by chance. God had a plan all along with these frogs. We soon found out that frog stood for Fully Rely On God. Once I discovered that, I knew we were suppose to do something and incorporate frogs.
In the Summer of 2010 we were lead to start Coleson's F.R.O.G. (Fully Relying On God). We now get the chance to give back but must of all give HOPE to these families when they need it most.
We are so excited to see what God has already done with this ministry and can't wait to see what He has in store for us for years to come!
