Mission Monkey and Prayers for Daffy

Today is worldwide Mission Monkey Day! but before we get to that another blogger friend is going through a nightmare of her own. href="">Daffy and her family are saying goodbye to the sister they once knew. Daffy's sister came out of a long surgery yesterday with no neurological activity at all. Please pray for her, Daffy and her family and especially her 5 year old son. I can't even image how hard it is for him.

and now for Mission Monkey........

I still feel so new to this blog world but I truly have never felt as much a part of something. It is so wonderful how all these bloggers band together when someone is going through a crisis. I do not know Michelle or Monkey but my heart goes out to them. This is reality folks and to not support this because "it would take away from the fun" is selfish. The happy-go-lucky blog world is great but these are also REAL people with REAL lives.

TodayI am participating in what's known around the world as Mission Monkey day! What is Mission Monkey you ask? Well, there's this blogger friend of ours known as Pixie Momma, aka Michelle. Michelle has a little girl, or Monkey as she's known by who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. To learn more about it, click here. Monkey is a sweet little 16 month old girl. She doesn't deserve this. Nobody deserves this.

But the good news is that Monkey only has Stage 1 (low risk). The bad news is the medical bills are mounting and the Physical Therapy (starts today) isn't covered by insurance. Michelle is using the donated money to offset medical bills. She will donate and unused portion to another family dealing with the same issue.

This is why the blogging universe is banning together like never before to rally around Michelle and Monkey to provide support. In addition to further entice you to lend your hand, and donate to the cause, we have over 50 items that have been donated. Many bloggers are hosting these fabulous giveaways and all you need to win one of these items is just one raffle ticket. There's tons of wonderful stuff. For more info. head on over to Ians, he's done a super awesome job of putting this whole thing together.

Monkey could be anyone of our kids. How grateful would you be to someone who helped you in a situation like this??
