It is below the Meal Train link in the post. The donations will go to the Lykken family.

I've just donated $100. If I can afford to cruise, I can afford to help. I count my blessings when I hear sad stories like this. But at least wee Chase is here to fight the battle!

Best wishes to his family,
Brenda R.

After I donated "Anonymously," I realized I should have donated as Itinkso. Wouldn't it be cool to see DISer screen names on the Donor list?

I had gotten off the Fantasy a week before this happened. The Fantasy is a home I have lived on for 28 nights. It feels like this happened at my "Home". It tears my heart out, as he (and I don't even know his name) feels like my family as well.

I think this is why, as well, others have been so deeply affected.

I am not real good at putting thoughts into written words, but this was my attempt.

God Bless him and his family.
You said it well. We feel the same way. It is as if this, in a way, happened in our own backyard.

At times like these we all pull together for the ones that are gravely affected.

Like other disers we have lit a candle as an outward sign of our prayers and hopes for this little boy and his family.

Prayers are desperately needed for little Chase...in the latest post on Caring Bridge, his parents are requesting more prayers as they have received an unsettling prognosis. Please join in prayer for Chase and his family.

Our hearts and prayers are with the family, as they struggle with this...

God be with Chase and hold him tight. This family will need your strength and love, more than ever.

Such crushing news! It's not too late for a miracle, but all the medical evidence seems to be pointing to permanent brain damage for this little boy. This family needs prayers more than ever right now. The pain they must be going through is beyond imagining.

There is also the 'managing expectations' piece as well. All hope is not lost, but one must be cautious.

So sad, but so true... Then again, where I come from there is a saying: "hope never dies"
