Special Benefit Auction!

If you have been following our blog long, you will know that a very dear and special friend of mine, Jennifer, has Inflammatory Breast Cancer. You can read one of my many posts about her by clicking Right Here! Doctors have not given Jennifer much hope. As a matter of fact, they told her last week that her time left here on Earth is short and that she should basicaly throw in the towel. But not my Jennifer. She's a fighter. And she vowed to not go down easy but that she would go out kicking and fighting. That's the Jennifer I know!

I got to visit with her over this past weekend. She is in a hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio with double pneumonia and a possible blood clot on her lung. For someone going through so much, we were able to sit and laugh and talk for over 2 hours which I have to tell you...it made my day. Ever since that night, I haven't been able to get her family off of my brain or out of my heart, especially that little bright eyed, ornery grinned baby boy of hers. So I racked my brain and decided that we should have an online auction to benefit her family. I  wasn't sure how I would get sponsors lined up to donate product but I had the faith and went ahead and planned the auction for March 21-27 and I cannot believe the response. I have had sponsors pouring in, donating product and telling me how touched they are by Jennifer's story as well. For being so young, she sure has touched a lot of lives.

So I am going to start sharing the sponsors on here this week and there is also going to be a link above with all of the sponsors information. If you would be so kind to give them all a visit, maybe even go give them a "like" on Facebook...anything to show our support for their kind donations for this great cause. I love all of our followers and how generous you all are and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance for your help on this!
