In May 2011, Ward Asher Elrod was born with Hydrocephalus. He immediately underwent lifesaving surgery, and is thriving and growing and being a boy. He is a miracle. You can read his story by clicking on his name.
In July 2011, Shannon travelled to Uganda to minister and give a life-saving surgery to a baby with Hydrocephalus. The same procedure that saved Ward's life saved the life of a sweet baby girl in Uganda.
You see, in Uganda, Hydrocephalus is believed to be a curse, and the only way to break that curse is to drown the baby in the river. The procedure that Shannon brought a baby girl in Uganda saved her from the river.
Now Ward's mother and aunt are on a mission to save more babies from the river.
And you can help.
Asher bracelets, named in honor of Ward, are for sale! They are $12 each, and the proceeds are used to help pay for another surgery for another baby suffering with Hydrocephalus.
The bracelets are beautiful in sets of 3 or 5, and they come in a variety of colors. They make a perfect gift (what a story to share with the recipient!) or a beautiful accessory on your own arm.

Ward loves his Asher Bracelet, and he knows you'll love yours, too!
