Can You Help?

First I need to say sorry that I've been MIA the past few days. I was out of town at a wedding, sans kids, and just got back yesterday. I'll post on the details and maybe post some embarrassing photos of my husband dancing...but that will be later.

I want to bring your attention to a very special charity Raffle that's being held by Amber, owner of Jaycee Danielle (bath and body). A customer of hers has a daughter named Stephanie. Stephanie is dealing with a rare form of cancer caused by Asbestos exposure. Here's the details from Amber's site:

"One of my customers has a daughter that needs our help. Stephanie has malignant peritoneal mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure. There are only 4 Dr.'s in the US that treat this and she is being seen by Dr. Robert Taub in NYC. She will be going to NYC for her first of 2 surgeries to put in the ports for chemo on June 3 and will have to stay there for 2 weeks. She will then start traveling to NYC once a week for 3 weeks out of the month for 6 months for chemo. She will then have another surgery to remove the ports.... probably in Dec. She will not be able to work for this period of time. And her insurance company is not paying for the travel or the treatment. She is a phlebotomist at Presbyterian Hospital in Greenville, TX and has a husband, Kyle, and 2 daughters, Jayden age 9 and Camryn age 7."

Amber is holding a raffle right now and drawings will take place on June 30th. Many, many online Indie etailers have donated products or gift certificates to help out in this cause. My good friend Shannon Foster of Foster's Creation even made a special bracelet just for Stephanie.

These tickets are going for $5 each and include such etailers as Foster's Creations, Flour City Bakery, Beach Girl Beauty, Things that Make Sense, Charming Sam, several packages from Wickedly Chic (OMG the stuff they are donating!!!!) and many more. Right now through MIDNIGHT are only $1!!!!!!!!!!!! So, go now and get some tickets. You could win a very nice prize and you'll be doing something wonderful for another human being who really needs it right now. Pay it never know when YOU might need this kind of help.

Please click on the title of this post and it will take you straight to the raffle page.
