#PrepWithPurpose - August 25, 2016: Ramble Davis

For backstory on what #PrepWithPurpose is all about please read the blog entry and/or Instagram Post.

Hey Friends,

Back when I was a news anchor at WVLT in Knoxville I would walk into the newsroom as chipper as someone could be at 3:30am on Thursdays ( I don't miss those morning show hours) and say HAPPY DAY BEFORE FRIDAY everyone!!! I always LOVED Thursdays. Why Thursday?! Well .. for those that are working for the weekend it means that you have just ONE MORE DAY! Just get past this day (Thursday) and then it's Friday (when everyone is in a better mood.) It just made the day more exciting! So .. happy day before Friday, lol! These days .. Thursdays mean it's my Upper Body Endurance Lift :) I'm excited to train today and have some killer motivation from a sweet little boy that was born with special needs .. and now .. has another fight .. cancer :-(

Prep With Purpose - August 25, 2016: Ramble Davis

Meet Ramble. He turns two in November. Ramble was born November 2014 ... with Down Syndrome. Kids with DS face many challenges .. one being they have a much higher chance of getting leukemia than other children. Sadly Ramble has been diagnosed. He will be in the hospital for 8-10 .. no doubt emotionally and financially draining for his family.

It goes without saying that first and foremost little Ramble needs LIFTING UP!!! But also his family needs some support. A friend has set up a Go Fund Me page to hopefully help make things a little easier on his family. As I always say .. if I don't know the family .. I can't "vouch" for their financial need. I just pass on the page and let you make the decision.

But well wishes and prayers are FREE! Besides .. that is what PREP WITH PURPOSE is all about! We are able .. we are healthy .. we CAN get to the gym and be active or go about our day to day activities (work, school, etc.) So we use those that CAN'T as our motivation!! Then while we are at the gym (or work/school) we LIFT UP AND FOR them the entire time! Motivation for us .. well wishes for them :) Win-Win for sure!

Ramble (and his family) have already had to overcome so many obstacles. It's pretty unfair that they are faced with another one. Cancer will no doubt be the biggest battle they have had to fight.
Let's lift up and for him and his family .... now Ramble .. get to kicking cancers butt!!!


I want to continue this project/prayer chain. But I'm finding myself spending HOURS searching for people to "lift up and for" because I'm not getting any requests -- I know you guys have to know someone (or have heard of someone) with an ongoing or urgent need for physical healing? Please send me all details possible, a pic if they don't mind sharing, etc.
