Not only does a local family need our prayers but I would love to give them a financial gift, and you might be able to help by participating in my auction!
A client of mine had her 3 year old suddenly become ill last Monday. After all symptoms worsened, by Tuesday they took him to the hospital and was then transferred to another. The doctors told them they made it just in time or else it could have been fatal. As parents, they are now faced with the unthinkable. Their son has a strand of bacterial meningitis, the most serious strand called meningoccal menigitis.
Here is some info on the strand he had, which the mother gave me:
Meningococcal meningitis is a rare but serious infection. It causes the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord to become inflamed. Each year, fewer than 2,600 people get meningococcal meningitis in the U.S. But this disease can be fatal or cause great harm if you are not treated right away. Even with treatment, meningococcal meningitis is often fatal. And as many as one out of five people who get it have serious complications.
An update from his mom: he is finally opening his eyes, and asking to go home!!!! They are in high hopes to be moved out of ICU soon!
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP!!!!!
I have rounded up some vendors who would love to paticipate in this auction. Their donations will be placed in an album on facebook where anyone can bid on their product or package. For instance say it is a knit hat, under the photo I will then place the starting bid and the bidding increments. IN ORDER TO BID YOU MUST PLACE YOUR BID and THEN YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. Once bidding is over if you are the highest bidder an invoice will be sent to your email. Bidding ends Tuesday at Midnight.
SEE THE AUCTION HERE!!
IF you would like to make a cash donation you can send me a message to my inbox or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the amount and your email and I can invoice you.
If you win a bid, I will then notify you that you have won said product and the vendor will contact you in regards to your winnings.
Thank you so much to all the vendors who are participating and to those who are participating in bidding or giving a cash donation. I couldn't imagine one of my chidlren going through this and the least I can do is help this family with a cash donation and prayer.
If you have any questions, please feel free to message me!!!!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL VENDORS INVOLVED:
