Just letting everyone know that Ashley, Tyler and Papa George made it to Maryland safe and sound at the Ronald mc Donald House. Well, things didn’t go so well getting on the flight, but they are in Maryland and at the Ronald McDonald House with people that love and care so much.

They had a hard time with the commercial flight. First, the alarm went off on Tyler with all his hardware in his little body, even though Children’s Flights of Hope had already advised them of Tyler’s condition. They still made us take his shoes off and be searched. They made him stand up from his wheelchair the second time and do a pat down on the little boy.

Finally, they let him through, and then it was Ashley’s time. She said that the alarm went off again, and they asked her if she wanted a private room to be searched. She said no, so a really heavyset lady led her behind a glass door and made her stand with her legs apart and patted her down.

She asked why this was being done and they told her it was random. She had never been on a commercial flight before. Still, this was humiliating and embarrassing for Ashley. I wanted to cry for her. This was United Airlines.

Please say a prayer for our family. We already are going through so much in Tyler’s journey and things like this make it even worse.

God bless. We love you all. I also want to thank the Cancer Society of Greenville and Steven for their help with this trip.
