Now Aaron McCoy lives in Texas with his wife and two daughter. His extended family still lives in the Rogue Valley.
On Sunday, his youngest daughter, Claire McCoy, began preparing for surgery in Texas. Her skull was fractured during birth and unfortunately, she developed a severe case of cerebral palsy. She cannot walk, talk, or see. Now she is 15 years old and her kidney’s are failing. She spent two years on the donor list and undergoes kidney dialysis nightly. But that is no longer enough. So dad jumped at the opportunity to keep his daughter alive.
His sister-in-law, Angie McCoy said the whole family is sending their love and support all the way from Central Point.
“Its just understanding the love of a parent for a child that Aaron is risking his own health to do this but he said would never regret that decision. We’re just here to support them and love them and hold them up with prayer always,” Angie said.
Although Aaron and Claire live far away from the rest of the McCoy family, some of them will travel to give their support in person. His brother Gabriel is there now and his mother, Patti, will fly out soon.
