The holidays are quickly approaching and this time of year is the time for giving. Well, one of our friends in the community could use a boost.

Some of you may know Larry Prout and his family from his ties to the Michigan football program. He’s been going through a rough time lately and the family has asked for Christmas cards to be sent to lift spirits.

“I have a favor. Everyone always asks what we need and what they can do. Please send him a Christmas card,” his mother, Kathryn, posted on social media. “Anyone who knows me knows I hate asking for anything. I’m asking for Bear. Please send him a Christmas card. Please send to 1936 Triangle Lake Road Howell MI 48843. He’s been in the hospital or recovering from surgery or sick during Christmas since 2015. And many other Christmases before that he has spent in the hospital. I swear. He misses school, misses seeing his friends and family, and is lonely and sad. And yes in pain. If you can do this, thank you.”

If you can’t send a card, feel free to share any messages to Larry in the comments below and we will share them with the family.
