Annika

I'd bet that most of you who visit this blog also know of Moreena and her family through Moreena's wonderful writing at Falling Down Is Also A Gift. I've been reading Moreena's blog for a while now, and her writing and her family's story have both touched my heart. For those of you who don't know the story, here's the immediate issue.

Moreena's eldest daughter, Annika, has had two liver transplants in her five years of life. She's been ill again the past few months, and may need another transplant again soon. As if this weren't enough to deal with, it seems Annika's insurance, through some bizarre accounting system known only to insurance companies, has been used up for the rest of 2006. So she needs help, and soon.

There has been an account set up for Annika with the Children's Organ Transplant Association. There is also a raffle with some great items up as prizes, and some other very clever fund-raising ideas. You can see these fundraisers here.

Please help in any way you can.

  • Hi Mom!

    You've been gone too long - I couldn't figure out who we were seeing on Wednesday. Sorry about that :(

    Thanks for your donation. Moreena's family needs all the help they can get. I can't even imagine what this must be like for them.
