Prayers Needed For Our Newest Feel Better Campaign Recipient

The beautiful couple pictured here is Heather and Sean Brown. They were excitedly expecting a new baby boy at the end of October but, on September 15th, 2012, things changed drastically for this family. Sean was serving our country in Afghanistan when his wife, who was 34 weeks pregnant at the time, began to experience back pain and a headache. She went to the hospital, started having seizures, and it was discovered that she had a massive brain bleed.

Heather's sweet baby boy was delivered via emergency c-section and now Heather is in the fight of her life. Heather is in a coma and needs as many thoughts and prayers as possible to help with her healing. Her loving husband, Sean, was able to make it back from Afghanistan and has been by Heather's side. This past week, Sean was able to finally re-unite Heather with their new son, John. In Sean's words, when baby John was placed on Heather's chest, "Heather instantaneously, as soon as she touched John, made a grimace on her face as if she was fixing to cry, like she knew." This has brought great hope for Heather's family as they continue to pray for continued progress in her recovery. 

We decided to make Heather our next "Feel Better Campaign" recipient and, at the request of her family, sent her the "Susan" gown. We hope this gown can provide some comfort and strength to Heather and her family:-)

WE NEED YOUR HELP TOO!! Please join us in sending healing thoughts and prayers to Heather and her family.

Please "LIKE" and "SHARE" our Facebook post to spread the word about her story.

A Facebook page was set up by a friend of the family to help support them and we would love if you would go and "LIKE" their page here -> "Bringing Home the Browns". They have already received a tremendous response on their Facebook page but the more people to support them with thoughts and prayers the better.

Thank you so much for always rallying behind our Annie & Isabel warriors!! We know it means the world to them.


  1. WOW. This is an amazing site with such a beautiful message. I am so impressed with these precious hospital gowns!! You are making a difference in so many lives. God BLESS you!

  2. {Melinda} I am heartbroken to hear about this couple's story. Heather will be in my prayers. May God bless your ministry to this family.

    This week, my friend (who I've known since high school) just found out that the baby she is carrying (after a miscarriage and years of infertility) has fetal cystic hygroma, a rare condition that causes fluid sacs to form on the head and spine. The chances of carrying the baby to term are very low. And genetic/chromosomal abnormalities often accompany this condition. Heartbreaking. She and her husband are strong, godly people, but are really having a hard time as you can imagine.

    Visiting from SITS!

  3. Just hopped over from SITS Sharefest. This is amazing thing you are doing. A gal in our Bible Study just suffered a stroked at 33 weeks pregnant while HER husband was in Afghanistan. She was so fortunate to be recovering with only limited mobility. I will be praying for this family and Heather's recovery. Please keep us updated!
