I DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP! Well, my child does... LINK ED FroggysMommy 1 child; Golden, Colorado 27775 posts

Okay, so here's the story. I soooo hope I can salvage this because in the midst of my medical stuff I completely forgot about Lily's fundraiser.



Well a back story... my Mom suffered a massive heart attack the day Lily was born. She had numerous heart attacks, actually. It can be disguised as "flu" symptoms so she wasn't thinking it was a heart attack. Neither did her doctors. But she was kicked out of the hospital the night I had Lily because they thought she had the flu. I came home from the hospital 4 days later, and that night my Mom feels so crappy she goes to the ER. Low and behold... she suffered a massive heart attack and had signs of numerous heart attacks. They think she had a stroke too. This starts the long journey (it's been 8 years) of surgeries, medication, and absolute bullshit with the drug company from the drug that caused the heart attack. My Mom is now disabled from it... she can never work again. The fact that she's alive is a miracle.



So now with Lily... she has a fundraiser tomorrow where she is jump roping for the American Heart Association. And I haven't reposted her link since I first posted it. I am practically begging for pledges... I know it's a hard time in the economy, but if you all can pledge $5-10 dollars, it would truly mean a lot to me, my daughter, and especially my Mom. We don't get the money, it goes to the American Heart Association and believe me, the work they have done for my Mom is incredible. Each surgery has saved her, and the Heart Center of Colorado has been a godsend. Those doctors are world-reknown... the money helps people like the doctors that have helped my Mom and it helps spread awareness about Heart Disease. As woman we are much more likely to have a heart attack than men. And ours tend to be more silent... it's why it's the silent killer.



But the event is tomorrow... it would make me INCREDIBLY happy if you all could pledge some money so she can go in with some pledges and help, I feel like I disappointed her. And we don't have friends or family here to help us.... you all are my friends. I'm lame :(



Please tell me if you pledged so I can write you a thank you card... the pledges do have to be done by tomorrow morning when I send her to school, so please please please PLEASE I'm begging you... can a few people band together and help me out?



The link was wrong before, thats what it shows on the dashboard end and it's not correct, but here is the correct link! Thanks ladies!

I'm thinking so since the story matches the one she posted about.




I'm scared to donate until she confirms though. I want to make sure it goes to the right person.
