Read the Article: Local Little girl needs life saving heart transplant
Hi,some of you know me - others don't.
Would you be willing to help someone that you don't know ,get a life saving transplant? This is what I've been up too.A local little girl is in St. Louis Children's Hospital waiting a life saving heart transplant.She is only 10 yrs old & has lived with pain & many hospital visits.She has a condition that hardens her heart called Restrictive Cardiomyopathy.She is just a little girl that wants to not be sick.
We heard about her & as some of you already know I had a step daughter who was born with a heart condition;she had half a heart,upside down & on the right side.she had a total of 9 operations- her last one was March 19th ,2002 ,we buried her a week later.This fundraiser that we,ve been working so hard on is also bringing back the pain of a loss.But hope for the future for a family.
I've been critasized by my own brother for doing this.He gave me the goverment & health bill speech & how hospitals don't heal the pateints like they should.He's just mad that they couldn't cure our Dad of cancer.I gave him a speech that left him speechless.This is a speech from a parent that watched their child go thru hell & pain- that a kiss couldn't take away.
I told him that if I could just save one child from the pain -that's one more parent not greiving the loss of a child.And being one that has lost 2 - I'm going to raise as much as I can.People who do not understand or care ask me ,"Why?" I answer cause, "I am a Human Being."
You get donations from local businesses for the fundraiser.The out of pocket expenses aren't that much.Start a fundraiser in your community.If you don't know where to start- get as much info about the person,get a place to have it,make fliers & ask around your town for donations. Show someone you care enough to do something big & you will get respect from yourself as well as the people around you. God Bless those who do care to do something & give straigth to those who need it. Love Ya ,Cindy
