Please post this blog & share the love!

There are so many worthy causes to support but this one in particular really touched me.  It may be the fact that as a parent my heart breaks when I hear of sick children; & it definitely has something to do with wanting to support local families in need; & then there's the fact that I'm grateful that I'm in a position to help others at the moment.

Grab the tissues (if you are like me) & read on ... In 2007 Myka & Jon (pictured above)  lost their first born son Tyler at only 3 months old from a serious heart condition. Now with one healthy daughter their youngest son has been diagnosed with the same condition. At only 6 months old he's already undergone two open heart surgeries only for the surgeon's to tell them there isn't much more they can do. This family has been through so much in the past few years and are now facing this all over again....their greatest wish is for Jon to be able to spend more time at home with them as a family but with a mortgage and all that goes with a young family he needs to stay in full time work.

So... We (& I mean hundreds of normal people like you & me) are trying to help make this families wish come true so Jon can at least cut a few working weeks short.

There are loads of things you can do to help.  You may find this one the most fun ...
