This is Sarah. Sarah is Charlie's mama. As a mama, oftentimes it is so difficult to ask for help. We mamas want to do it all and protect our cubs with all the ferocity a mama lion can muster. However, once in a while life throws you for a loop and when others step in to soften that blow, it is a blessing for you and for them. Sarah's Charlie is in need of surgery. Specifically, to treat a condition he has called Craniosynostosis. I am not a doctor, but to put it bluntly, Charlie's noggin will be operated on to surgically separate his skull plates that fused together while in the womb. You, me, all of us can imagine that the costs associated with such a procedure are astronomical. While I will certainly use my powers of prayer, and good thoughts, and mama juju to wish Charlie well, as well as pray for a full recovery, I will also do what I can to help this family shoulder the burden of the incumbent finances that go hand-in-hand with such an expensive medical procedure.
You can do the same, Every little bit counts and just imagine the mountain of bits we can create if everyone contributes what they are able. To add yours to the pile, go here.
P.S.- thank you. The power of the human spirit, of our generosity to help in times of need, is overwhelming. Feel free to go out and overwhelm.
