I am hoping the title line attracted some attention, because this blog is an important one. Many of you have visited my father’s blog here – learningwithoutscars.com. For those of you who haven’t, he runs his own consulting business in the heavy equipment industry. I have had occasion, over the years, to meet many of his business associates. About four years ago, his associate Marty Piel was here for one week to visit/have a confab with Dad. That week coincided with swim lessons for my babies, so Dad and Marty came to the lessons every day. 🙂
Marty is, in addition to working for DitchWitch, a minister for his Church. He is an all around terrific man, with a lovely family.
In 2007, Marty’s granddaughter Zoey was born. Zoey began facing health problems at only three months of age, and has been diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome.
I am asking every single one of you who visits this blog to PLEASE share it: with your twitter followers, your facebook friends, your church, your business place, JUST EVERYWHERE YOU CAN! Zoey has a website now, due to the aboslutely catastrophic costs associated with the necessary medical care. You can read her story at http://www.giveforward.com/zoeyszoneforhope#
If any of you can donate, please do so. If you cannot make a donation, I ask that you please pray for Zoey and her family – and ask everyone you know to say a prayer for her too.
For more information about Dravet Syndrome, you can visit http://www.dravetfoundation.org
Thank you for reading, and thank you in advance for spreading the word and helping Zoey get the necessary medical treatment!
Blessings to you all…
