Today I am joining in a fundraiser sponsored by Leah Lawson. This is a card drive and fundraiser hop that rings true to me. It is all about [babies] & parents, and the NICU. My son spent his first 5 days of his life in this department. Fortunately, he persevered, and turns 24 next week!
Here is my inspired card. Following my card is Lea Lawson's story for this hop. I hope you join in and support this awesome cause. Thank you.
Here is Lea's story:
......Today a dream of mine is coming true, as this Card Drive & Fundraiser goes live in honor of my sweet little bear, Layton Caleb. Hi friends! In case you don't know me, my name is Lea Lawson & I've been part of this wonderful papercrafting industry since 2002.
Layton - our little fighter and hero for 5 months & 7 days. Layton came into this world 11 weeks early on June 9th, 2016 with 2 serious health conditions. He endured more medically on a daily basis than most adults face in an entire lifetime. And on November 17, 2016 he joined his big sister in Heaven.
We were given those 5 months with Layton thanks to the level 4 NICU & amazing medical staff at The University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. There are 50 beds in that NICU, and it is ALWAYS full. In honor of Layton's birthday, I am raising money to purchase substantial Starbucks gift cards that can be given to these parents as they find themselves thrust into NICU life.....
