Request...

Hi all,

I want you to picture for a moment a present or former 2-year old who means a lot to you. The chubby cheeks and giggles and innocence, running around with food all over their faces and getting into everything. Two is such a fun, amazing age.

Now picture that same 2-year old, still happy and giggling, but unable to run or play like the other kids do. A child who is locked inside a body that won't do what it's supposed to. What would you do to help that child that you love so much?

I met Jennifer and Liam soon after the doctors discovered Dax was missing his cerebellum. Liam was born at 24 weeks on the dot, and is a twin to Brady, who, like Aubrie, was not able to survive outside the womb. Liam, like Dax, is missing his cerebellum, but he also has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and has significant delays with his motor development. He's a very bright, loving boy with a wonderful, supportive family who is trying everything they can to give Liam a long, happy, normal life.

So, here's where you come in. Liam's family is trying to raise some funds right now for a therapy that insurance will not cover. It has been hard on Jennifer to reach out for help, but they've done a good deal of research on this therapy and will do whatever it takes to make sure he gets it. Please consider donating a few dollars to help.

Jennifer explains about the therapy and their needs on her blog. If nothing else, just stop in to see how stinking cute Liam is and check out their story.

Thanks so much everyone!

Of course I will help in any way I can. Is she local? I don't have time at this moment to read her blog, but I will sometime in the next two days. How do we get money to her?
