This is an amazing story.

Sgt. Charles Gaytan, an active duty military police officer, is stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. But on Dec. 30, 2016, his wife wife, Kayla, bore him quadruplet babies on Dec. 30, 2016. But that’s the culmination of a wonderful story and the beginning of another.

He describes the beginning of this saga:

My wife and I have been through a lot, just this year. In January 2016, we got  married, we were so excited to begin our lives together. A week later, we found out that Kayla was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. (a blood cancer). She battled a gruesome 5 months of chemotherapy, getting treatments every other week. In May, we were told awesome news, Kayla was in remission. However, we were told that having another child would be unlikely.”

They were told that the cancer fighting drugs would most likely result in early menopause, thereby preventing them from having children.

But great news was given to them one month later: doctors informed them that Kayla was pregnant with four babies. Everyone was ecstatic.

Gaytan continues:

At 28  weeks pregnant, Kayla had a biopsy and the results confirmed a relapse of her Hodgkins Lymphoma. It’s been characterized as refractory disease so a stem cell transplant followed by 16 months of chemotherapy is needed. With a heavy heart, we along with our medical team decided to deliver the babies by C Section at 30 weeks. As Kayla needs to begin treatment right away. Our quadruplets were born December 30, 2016. They are currently in the NICU and trying their best to breathe. We feel very blessed.”

Yes they are. But their future remains unclear as Kayla resumed chemotherapy immediately after her quadruplets were born.

She revealed

I’ve been given a 50-percent chance of surviving five years because [the cancer] has come back so quickly.”

In the mean time, Gaytan’s friends established a GoFundMe account set-up in their name. When Sgt. Gaytan appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s television news show, The O’Reilly Factor, on January 26, 2017, the total amount in the account was about $8000. O’Reilly reported 24 hours later that the amount was almost $1 million.

The Gaytans are optimistic about their future. Indeed Kayla reported,

We know that (God has) got to have a different plan up there for us, and surely everything’s going to work out in the end,”

We all wish the Gaytans the best.

Trump Dropped Everything To Go To Hospital With Melania – Who They Ran Into Changed Their Lives

Published

on

President Donald Trump has a lot on his plate and frequently turns his weekends into work days, as he tirelessly forges ahead to get America back on track. However, today, he dropped everything to go the hospital with Melania, and now we know who else was there for an incredibly tragic reason. The sudden visit came as a big surprise but what happened there was nothing short of incredible.

The Trumps are no strangers to hospitals recently, as Melania was just at one a few short weeks ago for the entire day visiting children undergoing cancer treatment. Her compassion was evident for these kids, brightening their day in her soft, under spoken way, despite the burdens she was in the midst of dealing with at the time from the hateful media who relentless attack her and can only find fault in her every move. Saturday’s trip to one particular hospital was for an entirely different reason and what was caught on camera is something that everyone in America needs to see.

The president has proved his pride in our military by honoring these heroes every chance he gets, along with giving them the power back to do their job and defeat our enemies. The fight doesn’t come without great sacrifice, which too often means the cost of life or limb. When soldiers are greatly wounded in war, they are treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Today, the president and First Lady had the honor of visiting these important patients and presenting one with a Purple Heart. “During the visit, President Trump awarded Sergeant First Class Alvaro Barrientos a Purple Heart,” the Gateway Pundit reported. “Sergeant First Class Alvaro Barrientos was injured in Afghanistan recently.” Then, something incredible happened that we haven’t seen in years.

Trump didn’t have to spend his day in the hospital nor be the one to award Sergeant Barrientos with the Purple Heart. However, there was nothing more important than showing his respect and his appreciation for this amputee. “When I heard about this, I wanted to do this myself,” President Trump said.“Congratulations. Tremendous.”

The couple posed for several pictures with the war hero. There’s no better person to present this medal to a soldier than a Commander-in-Chief who genuinely cares. Had Barack Obama still been in office and made the time to arrive at Walter Reed, it would have been an insult to them for the man who stripped the military down to nothing to present it. Trump has built it back up even after Obama, “urged soldiers to question Trump’s authority, saying to ‘criticize our president’,” Breitbart reported.

As news of Trump’s visit broke, some criticized him for making his plans known in a Tweet before leaving the White House and heading to the hospital. While he announced it with great honor saying he was “looking forward to seeing our bravest and greatest Americans,” the liberal media said, “Most visits go unannounced.” However, they missed the point.

Too often, especially under Barack Obama, Americans lose sight of the sacrifice made on the battlefield for our freedom. The rights we enjoy here today are defended by brave men and women willing to put their life on the line, which liberals take gross advantage of. While these heroes are facing an enemy in a foreign land that’s far outside of an entitled leftist’s “safe space,” liberal idiots are back in the land of the free crying for handouts, stomping on our flag, and complaining about fairness.

Trump’s visit today should serve as a reminder of what patriotism, heroism, and being a true American really looks like. The military deserves any and all attention they can get and Trump announcing that he’s presenting this important award should be something commended, not criticized.

WHOA! Look What Melania Just Did To Her Entire Flight Crew After What Happened To Her Personal Staff

Published

on

Melania Trump doesn’t have a personal staff as big as Michelle Obama’s was, which was an intentional decision she made to cut back on unnecessary spending. Operating with a team of professionals who each have an important purpose, our compassionate First Lady shows sincere gratitude for each person who helps her, recognizing that it’s a privilege. So when she saw how they were treated recently, Melania responded in a surprising way our of protection for the people who help her do her job.

Melania doesn’t speak often unless she has something meaningful or important to say. She saves her words for when they matter most, especially since the liberal media is waiting with baited breath for a chance to twist anything she says or does. Today she said something that won’t soon be forgotten, especially by her entire flight crew who her remarks were directed at.

While Melania is traveling around the globe on her first overseas trip as First Lady, she’s on Air Force One just about daily, going from one location to the next. It’s a lot of travel and flight time, which she’s become somewhat used to as she flies frequently while living in New York, but having First Lady duties in Washington, D.C. With this much time in the sky and need to rely on her flight crew she and her staff are dependent on, the team has gotten to know the personable First Lady and they aren’t just any flight crew.

Melania and her staff are transported by the US Army 1-214th Aviation Regiment who have always shown the First Lady and her staff the utmost respect in doing this important job. This is something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Melania who likes others to know how much they are appreciated, rather than just taking advantage of it the opportunities afforded her like her predecessor seemed to do.

Even though she’s overseas right now, Melania hasn’t forgotten about her awesome Army men who she publicly thanked today on Twitter going into this Memorial Day weekend. Like her husband, our First Lady has a love and respect for our military.

“Thank you to the @usarmy 1-214th Aviation Regiment for getting me & my staff to our mtgs safely! ,” Melania Tweeted from her official Twitter account today.

She didn’t have to say a word and perhaps nobody would have expected her to, but the fact that she remembered them and made a point to thank them for their service to she and her staff, speaks volumes as to the incredible First Lady we have in the White House. The gesture wasn’t just well-received by the American public who appreciated her thoughtfulness to our military, other servicemen and women saw her social media message and responded with gratitude.

“Thank You for representing the USA and making our Armed Forces PROUD!! ,” one reader replied.

Inevitably, the liberals came out in the comments too, as they always do as soon as FLOTUS posts anything, since they are waiting for it. One took the opportunity of seeing the photo of Melania with the Army flight crew to ask about her husband’s service in an accusatory way, claiming he dodged the draft. A wise citizen responded to it, effectively putting this troll in their place.

“Not serving doesn’t mean you’re a draft dodger. He registered. Lots of guys did and got deferments. Some actually left the country,” the Twitter user wrote.

What’s truly remarkable is that Melania is an immigrant and has more respect for our armed forces and genuine love for our country than ungrateful degenerates who were born here and seem to hate it. Our First Lady is proof that immigrants who come to America the right way are proud citizens who have a deep appreciation for what makes America great, and that starts with our military.

It wasn’t often or ever that the Obamas showed this kind of gratitude for anyone who flew them around safely. In fact, our former president couldn’t even bring himself to salute soldiers standing outside Air Force One or Marine One to welcome him. We’ve come a long way in the White House in a short time, with the Trumps there now who truly love this country and respect its citizens.
