A heart felt thank you to those of you that have asked how you can help my sister's family deal financially with a recent tragic event. For those of you whom are unaware, my sweet nephew Connor was recently attacked after he confronted an 18 year old for stealing his wallet and cell phone, in a community park, in Illinois. A fistfight broke out and as a result, the thug (whom was recently released from jail) pulled out a knife and cut Connor's face through to the bone, sliced his back, chest and wrist, and left him crumpled on the ground to bleed.

Sixty stitches later, Connor's football future is jeopardy, as 2 tendons in his arm were severed and has caused limited hand mobility. Even with private health insurance in the U.S., the family will likely incur thousands of dollars of debt, as a result of the required surgeries and care. Connor's Mother recently suffered a heart attack, therefore, working extra shifts as an RN is not a healthy option, at this point in time.

Rather than hate, I would like our energy to be put to good use with this fundraising effort to help with medical and dental costs. The family is NOT asking... They are simply too proud.

THANK YOU in advance for any help you can give... All Our Love! xo
