Fundraising for Life-Saving Surgeries
When your child is born with a life-threatening condition, what do you do? Imagine as a mama, that your child is born with a life-threatening condition and alongside the challenges of caring for your newborn, you are faced with providing nightly dialysis and weekly injections of life sustaining medications. This is Gavin's reality. And despite being born with End Stage Renal Failure, he has overcome tremendous obstacles. However, he is in need of a kidney transplant. But even before he can be placed on a transplant waiting list, hospitals require proof of payment.
Without a kidney transplant Gavin will not survive! This is why my brother-in-law has enlisted your help. Gavin's family and friends have teamed up with the Children's Organ Tranplant Association and launched a fundraising campaign to help Gavin’s family with medical costs not covered by private insurance. Their goal is to raise $100,000, a kidney transplant for baby Gavin costs around $200,000. Two requests:
- Please help save baby Gavin by making a 100% tax-deductible donation to his fund. By making your contribution, you honor this precious, young life.
- Also, have any other mamas or parents gone through this process? What advice and / or fundraising suggestions can you provide? I can only imagine organizing 10 Cafe Au Play level auctions which required a ton of volunteer hours and effort (but was a smashing success)!
