It’s said that 80% of Americans believe in miracles. Do you? The Jay and Katie Amidei family, on Anns Ct. in Knox, believe in miracles. Here’s why:
Their son, Colton, was diagnosed with a rare disease after doctors found a large mass behind his eye. The disease, which is difficult to pronounce, was so rare that very few Americans had ever been diagnosed with it.
At this time last year, little Colton had gone through two surgeries to remove the tumor, the first surgery taking 12 1/2 hours. The second was performed after opening his head to remove the mass that had been missed the first “go round.”
After learning of his battle (many after hearing his story on radio), hundreds of people said prayers for Colton and for the family who had gone through the heart-wrenching experience of watching their son, brother, and grandson suffering.
On December 9th of this year, after more trips to the Cleveland Hospital where the doctors performed the intricate surgeries, they received the message they had been hoping for. Colton had been mass-free for a year.
Although he’s not out of the woods yet, he’s certainly further along than last year. The little boy who loves Mario and Super Mario characters, experienced the joy of Christmas with his family, oooing and aaaaahing over his gifts like millions of other children around the world did too. Sitting off to the side were his parents, Jay and Katie, who know that to this point, and whatever happens in the future, they have been witness to a miracle.
