A Mother’s Love; The Inspiring Story of One of Our Guests, A Mom of Six!

As Mother’s Day approaches, we are privileged to share the remarkable journey of Linsay Beidler, a mother whose path took an unexpected turn when her 5-year-old son received a devastating medical diagnosis with no cure.

“My husband Giovanni and I are blessed with 6 beautiful children, all under the age of thirteen. I love having a big family, and watching our children grow up together is my greatest joy.

In late 2023, just weeks before our youngest was born, we learned that our son Giuliano has a progressive neuromuscular disease with no cure. Our lives went from being centered around sports and birthday parties to doctors’ appointments and insurance battles. We wanted the best treatment possible for our beautiful little boy, and unfortunately, that meant splitting up our close-knit family for the first time ever.

Half of us would have to relocate from Pennsylvania to Little Rock, Arkansas. Our first few trips to Arkansas were spent in airports, hotels, and hospitals with our three youngest children, aged 5, 2, and newborn.

When we got the call that we could move into an apartment with Goodness Village, it was truly the greatest gift I have ever received. The apartment is so perfect for Giuliano. It is a one-floor unit with no stairs, located in a safe community, clean and spacious, fully furnished and so cozy.

Being able to feed the kids in a real kitchen, bathe them in bathtubs, and set up play areas for Giuls and his younger siblings has made such a difference. Giuliano is able to continue living life in his home away from home, and for that, I couldn’t be more thankful.”

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, let’s honor the strength of mothers like Linsay. Consider donating in honor or in memory of a special mother in your life.
