From the DeMatha Lacrosse FB Page:
A few years back I was very sick. My son Zach (2016) played on the DeMatha lax team. DeMatha lacrosse, with the help of the team mom (Heather Southward Golczynski), showed up big at Christmas. They found out what my kids wanted for Christmas. They bought, wrapped, and placed gifts under a tree at my house.
I was in the hospital and things weren't going well. On Christmas Day, the hospital was closed to all visitors. My kids couldn't even visit due to a flu outbreak.
The only Christmas celebration we had was the gifts from DeMatha lacrosse. I Skyped with my kids and watched them open the gifts. I couldn't stop the tears. Those Stags even bought me a gift which I still treasure. I was too sick to get gifts for my kids, so those were the only ones!
I had asked them not to do all that for us, but they refused my request. It was a huge gift. At a time that was full of pain and uncertainty, this team took care of us. I can still rarely speak of it without a tear. It was such a great kindness! DeMatha lacrosse is a family. Our boys play a game together (which is headed to championship this year), but we also share life.
At one point I counted up meals DM lax brought to feed my sons, it went over 100 meals!!!! I was sick a long time. DeMatha lax served us over and over. They didn't stop until I got better! That's amazing!
Thank you to all who helped us. Words will never be able to express our gratitude. May God bless your Christmas!
