I Need Your Help

I know that Mother's Day is supposed to be about honoring our mothers and all that they have done for us, but I'm posting about something different.

Do you remember when I told you about a mom who had cancer and she had children that she might not see grow up, graduate, get married, have babies?? Well, I learned about that family from Supah Mommy. She's am AMAZING person that I have had the pleasure of getting to know over the past few months. She's super cool. funny, smart, quite the entrepreneur, and she has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

Now, here comes the hard part. Get a Kleenex.

There's another family on her blog tonight. My heart broke just reading the story. There's a precious 16 month old little girl who will melt your heart with one glance at her photo. She was just diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. It's  the same hateful, merciless disease that little Jaden Duttine (who lives in my neighborhood) was diagnosed with and fights so courageously every day.

Did you get that Kleenex. Have it handy, cuz here she is:

Isn't she gorgeous? They call her "Monkey." Did you gasp when you saw her precious little face? She has NO IDEA what she is about to go through. I am a wreck as I type this, and I don't even know her personally. It doesn't matter. I know what it's like to hold my baby and want so fiercely to protect them from anything and everything.

And so do her parents. Only they can't protect her from this.

Not only will they be ravaged in the wake of this disease being introduced into their lives, but their whole world as they know it is about to be turned upside down (more than it has already.) Treatment is not cheap. Every penny they have should and will be put into fighting this disease so that they get one more day with their princess. Won't you please help them?

If you are anything like me, when you read these stories, you just want to click on to the next page and forget the bad stuff. "I don't have any money" "I have issues of my own" "What difference could my donation possibly make?"

Let me tell you-it could mean 24 more hours her parents get to hold her. Kiss her little cheeks. Tuck her in at night. Feel her little hand touch their face.

Pleaase go to Supah's site and read the story there. CLICK HERE.

Please pray. It doesn't matter that we don't know their real name or where they live.
God does.
Please pray.
I will be.
