Just Keep Smiling helps families of critically ill children

By Melanie Posey

GARDENDALE, AL (WBRC) - Every year, we at FOX6 News tell heartbreaking stories about families who care for critically ill children. Caring for them takes so much time, attention and money. But things like house payments and utility must continue to be taken care of as well.

A Gardendale group runs Just Keep Smiling, an organization aimed at helping families in that very situation.  But they operate solely off donations. On Tuesday, February 22, they'll hold a fundraiser featuring Pam Tebow, the mother of Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. In the video above, FOX6 News reporter Melanie Posey gives us a closer look at one family they've helped since 2005.
