I came across this family the other day on a forum I am a part of and was just struck by the awful time this poor family is going through. They have 2 very small children with the same form of cancer, retinoblastoma, or eye cancer. The little girl has lost her left eye already to the cancer. Its very sad. The mom tells about it on her Facebook page:
“Charlotte was 4 months old when we discovered she had retinoblastoma in one of her eyes. The tumor was large and wrapped around her optic nerve The damage was great and she would never have sight in that eye so we removed her eye the following week. Things were great until routine check up on her good eye and they discovered small tumors in that eye. They are not in her line of vision.
Noah was 3 months shy of turning 5 when we found out he also has retinoblastoma. He was getting an exam just because his sister had it never did we think he would have tumors in his eyes also. He is now going through Intra-Arterial Chemotherapy”
Her mom also sells on ArtFire, like me, so i thought i would share her shop today as my shop of the week/month/day. She donates 5% from every sale to childhood cancer research, hoping, praying to find a cure for her children. Its very rare for 2 children in the same family to develop the same kind of rare cancer. Im not asking you to go run over there and buy something, but take a peek and pass on the shop to someone who would be interested in the items. Tis the season for helping others and miracles, so lets help out and pray for a miracle for this family this season!
The shop is called Cupcakes and Skulls Boutique and is a very adorable shop. I pray you will keep this family in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season and if you see fit that you will help them out in anyway that you can.
Another member on ArtFire is having a sale where all proceeds benefit the family. You can find that HERE.
God bless this holiday season.
Until Next Time,
