“We are going to search for every bit of good that we can find in this situation…,” Granger Smith said. “We’re going to constantly search ways that good will come out of this.”

The Smiths say more than $100,000 has been raised from t-shirt sales – all of which will be donated to Dell Children's Medical Center in Austin, Texas, where River was treated.
