Jessica at Shower of Roses is holding a raffle to help the Hadley family, whose child and possibly the other two children, have a rare and fatal disease called Niemann-Pick type C disease.
Please consider helping by entering the raffle here:
All proceeds will go to the Hadley Family.
Also, CALLING ALL KNITTERS!!! YES, CALLING ALL CROCHETING PEOPLE!!!
There is also another way to help and get your yarn fix. Following a link from the Hadley's website I found that there is a grassroots effort to earn more money to help fight this disease! It is called Cure Caps.
CureCaps Volunteers Needed Now!
We need volunteers today in our fight to beat cholesterol and cure NP-C! With your help, we know the the NP-C mystery can be solved and together we can unleash new medical discoveries by scientists. Researchers are currently working on ways to help our cholesterol properly move in our cells. However, much more research is needed and quickly. NP-C is a progressive neurological disorder and we have limited time in our race to beat this devastating illness. If you are interested in joining our fight, please email us. In addition, if know of a friend who knits, crochets or sews or if you are part of a knitting club who might be willing to donate time to our cause, please let us know. For more information, feel free to contact us and we will provide you with additional information. To make a financial contribution to support us, visit our donations page. We look forward to our daily trip to our mailbox to receive your CureCaps — made from the heart.
So check out their page and see if this is something you can help with. Thank you for all your prayers and help in fighting this disease which effects God's most innocent treasures, our children.
