Penny's Media Blitz

See this adorable little girl. This is Penny and currently she is fighting for her life. She was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. She has partial paralysis due to a tumor that has been pressing on her spine. They have done surgery to remove a good portion of the tumor and they are hoping she regains movement. As if this weren't enough, she has also been diagnosed with RSV.

Today over at Pennies 4 Penny they are having a media blitz. They are asking people to post on their blogs, tweet, and Face book about Penny. Please go here to get more details on what you can do to help Pennies 4 Penny. They are also going to be having an auction soon to help raise funds. If you have an item you can donate please contact them. They also want people to attend the auction to bid on items. You can find more details on their site as well.
A couple of years ago my oldest was in the hospital for 4 days and had to have surgery. This happened to be the one month we did not have surgery and did not qualify for any aide. The medical bills were around $50,000 and that did not include the ENT's bill. He was gracious enough to not charge us for his services. Penelope's family has insurance but it only covers 60% of the costs. They are already starting to receive bills for services rendered. Their insurance also doesn't cover the medicine she is being treated with. This family shouldn't have to worry about how they are going to pay for everything. Right now they need to be with there sweet baby. Please, if you are able to donate to their cause. Any amount helps. Donate for the auction. If you can't do any of those, please just spread the word about Penny.

Don't forget I'm doing a giveaway for you bloggers who place Penny's button on your blog, blog about Penny, or place her widget on your blog. Please go here to get more details.
