Rudy Favard – A True Star

This is a heartwarming story of a selfless young high school football star who answered the prayers of a family.

Ben and Sam Parker are 8 year old twins who couldn’t be more different. While Ben leads a normal life Sam was born with cerebral palsy.

His devoted parents, Patty and Rick, had been taking care of all his needs when new challenges arose into their household.

Dad Rick had to have heart surgery for a lift-threatening condition. This bump in the road left Rick unable to carry Sam up and down the narrow stairs in their home.

When Rudy Favard – a linebacker and co-captain of his football team – was asked to help the family he didn’t hesitate to say Yes! So now, every morning and every evening, before school and after football practice, Rudy appears at the door of the Parkers.

He is greeted as though he were one of their family. Ben doesn’t leave his side and Rick and Patty welcome him in each day. But the person is the most excited to see him each day is Sam.

    I believe in Angels and I am sure he is one. There are many all around us but but some never see them for they must have some love in their hearts. Jimmie Luna

    What can i say. It just brought tears to my eyes. I had a nephew with the same condition but he has passed on since. With God anything is possible He just strenghten’s us to carry on.

    I am humbled by the tremendous love parents have for these precious children. The strength and endurance of their love for their children shows the love of God for us. We too are the same if not in a worse state but Great is the Love of God for His children.

    God bless you all
