Christy needs our prayers and our help

A month or so ago I came across a blog that really touched my heart. The blogger, Christy, has a blog, One Day At A Time that chronicles her journey of not only infertility and success, but of her beautiful daughter's struggle. Christy's daughter Camryn was born with Hydrocephalus (water on the brain). Camryn is very ill and has had to have surgery and see many specialist. Between medical bills, missing work, and other issues Christy and her husband are losing their home. I cannot imagine what they are going through right now!! Just the stress of having a seriously ill child is a lot to handle, but to lose their home as well is just devastating.

I do not know Christy personally, I just follow her blog. She has been hesitant to talk about money issues on her blog but circumstances has forced her to seek help. They are in need of $6000 to keep their house as well as $10 per day to remain in the Ronald McDonald House to be near Camryn. If I had the money I would send it to her in a heartbeat! I asked her to start a ChipIn account so that other bloggers could donate if they feel led to do so. She also has listed other ways to donate directly to the Ronald McDonald House as well.

There are several ways that you can help!

*First and foremost, pray for Camryn and Christy and her family. We can all do that!!!

*Show her some support. Follow her blog. Comment and let her know that you are thinking of her and praying for her family.

*Get the word out. Post on your blog about about Christy and her precious little girl.

*If you know of any organizations that can help her family please let her know. Or if you know of ways to fund raise quickly, please let her know that as well.

*Donate $10 to help pay for one day of their stay in the RM House.

*Pray about donating more.

Take a moment to put yourself in Christy's shoes. To struggle with infertility, pay thousands of dollars for fertility treatments, be blessed with two children and now one fights for her life, all while trying to keep your home. Many woman would collapse under such pressure, but Christy is trying to remain strong for her daughter. So please, take a moment to show her some support!!!!
