Noah is a beautiful little boy at our church with Tay-Sachs diesease. Tay-Sachs is a fatal genetic disorder in infants that causes the destruction of the central nervous system. Currently there is no cure for this disease, and at best most doctors have said Noah may only have a few years to live. But, Noah continues to suprise the doctors with how well he’s doing. Noah’s parents, Jacob & Amanda, were missionaries in Mexico City before moving back to Childress to be closer to family and healthcare.
In August, Noah’s Uncle John sent a letter to Colt McCoy, along with a mini UT helmet, asking if it would be possible for him to sign the mini-helmet for Noah. John made it clear in the letter that if it was asking too much, or if he was overwhelmed by similar requests, then please disregard the request and letter. Not knowing if Colt would even get the letter or helmet, John sent it anyway.
A few weeks later the helmet arrived in the mail for Noah.
There was more than just an autograph on the mini-helmet, there was an entire message for Noah.
Thank you Colt McCoy. You are a very classy guy and a great example.
