Stranger's Reply To Wrong-Number Text About A Dress Changes Family's Life.
The Twitterverse learned that Wood's youngest child wasn't in the photo for a very good reason.
Kaizler, who is four years old, is suffering from leukemia, and the reason why the mom wasn't home to offer Uselton her input on the dress was that she had taken Kaizler to his usual chemotherapy session.
When Uselton's friend, Miller, learned of Kaizler's situation, she tweeted his GoFundMe page.
That act on its own led to retweet after retweet and a massive number of donations. In less than no time, thousands of folks had donated, and the Wood family realized the page had earned more than the $10,000 fundraising goal they had set up.
Wood and his family were humbled by everyone's generosity, but Kaizler had a long road ahead.
On Twitter, Wood let people know that Kaizler had been eager to go to kindergarten, but he got sick and had to go the hospital to undergo treatment. And while his son had over a year's worth of treatments, he was doing okay so far.
Wood considered it a blessing that people donated as much as they because money was tight.
Even though he worked very hard to make ends meet, the hospital bills were starting to overwhelm the family. But the Twitterverse showed compassion and they've even inundated Kaizler with letters from well-wishers offering him hope for a quick recovery.
Kaizler's mother, Rachel Wood, is also grateful for the financial boost they received.
She just couldn't believe that a wrong-number text made such a huge difference. She also pointed out how awesome it is that those who donated proved that the world still has good people. And she honestly feels that their journey through this is only possible thanks to everyone's love and support.
