At RPB, protecting people for life’s best moments is at the centre of everything we do. We believe in this wholeheartedly and this drives us as a business to support and help people in whatever ways we can. This year we have been fortunate enough to team up with ‘Hunt with Heart’, a non-profit organization based in Texas that creates unforgettable outdoor experiences for young people that are suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
It has been our greatest pleasure to sponsor Isaac this year and help him have an experience of a lifetime with this amazing organization along with all the other brave young boys and girls that have been involved. You’re a real legend Isaac, and your mother is so proud of the strong man you are!
If you would like to find out more about how you can help make a difference in the lives of boys and girls like Isaac, please check out the ‘Hunt with Heart’ website.
Message from Isaac's mother:
“Thank you for this opportunity for my son and his friends. We have been a part of this organization since 2014, when my son attended one of there ‘Camp Beaver Creek’ events. We’ve attended the clay shoot every year since and have thoroughly enjoyed it. My son, Isaac, was born naturally and had no signs of distress until he was 9 days old. That’s when his never-ending nightmare began. At 2 weeks old, he had his first open-heart surgery. Two months later he endured an emergency open-heart surgery, which he was able to make it till age 5, before he had another open-heart surgery. In addition to all of this, my husband, his father, died that year as well. The following year, he was diagnosed with a hip deficiency, which required replacement, which then lead into an upper leg surgery required another year later. Over the years, he’s had several more heart procedures and every two years has a heart catheterization to check for any obstructions, which in 2015 found another serious issue, leading to his 11th heart procedure over his short lifetime. He’s had to be resuscitated several times during these procedures, we thought we lost him many times over the years, but he keeps fighting. I call him my miracle and I pray every day I get to keep him around for a long time.
Normally, at these events, the kids act as just a celebrity member of a team, who walks around with them and hangs out. While he’s always enjoyed doing that, this year, with your gift, he was able to be a full member of a shooting team, being one of the ‘men’ and shoot in the event with his peers. Isaac is a what we call a forever patient at Texas Children’s Hospital, due to his problems are very different from standard heart disease, and he’s tried his entire life to fit in and feel “normal”. Yesterday on our way home from the event, he told me he felt whole for the first time and it brought tears to my eyes. He didn’t have to talk about his medical history or answer questions, he got to be one of the boys and just enjoy the day having fun with his friends. His most enjoyable moment was being able to teach one of his friends how to shoot because he had never done this before. I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate your support and how it’s touched our lives. Donations such as yours, do so much more than just pay for things Hunt with Heart does for our kids, it opens up doors that would normally be closed shut forever. Our financial situation has been rocky to say the least, so with the opportunities given to us by you and this wonderful organization, we’re blessed to take part in them, and have come to know and love everyone. Thank you for giving our kids such an awesome day, they will forever be grateful and I can promise you the smile he’s had on his face the last couple days does more for me than I’ll ever be able to express or repay. God Bless You!”
