I am excited to announce that I will be hosting a fundraiser for the next 30 days to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
As many of you know, my insurance didn’t really pay for Cooper’s ear tube surgery. Sure, they negotiated a rate for me to pay, but they don’t actually cover ear tube surgery since it falls into that fun little “Outpatient Procedure” loophole. The amount we were left to pay has been a bone of contention for me. But it is not.even.comparable to these children who have been seriously and chronically ill for long periods of time, undergoing surgeries and other procedures. At some point even the best-insured children’s coverage hits a limit. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital researches and treats dozens upon dozens of childhood cancers and other diseases, and children accepted for treatment at St. Jude’s are done so without regard for their family’s ability to pay.
My goal is to keep it that way…to make sure they can afford to keep treating these children, and coming up with newer and better drugs and therapies. Please help me do that.
Starting tonight, through Monday, December 15th, I will be selling Cookie Lee Jewelry and Arbonne Skin Care products, with 100% of the proceeds going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. You can do this by going to both the sites and order it through me, or in the case of the Arbonne products, you also have the choice of ordering it directly through the site. And for those of you who are local, I will be hosting a live jewelry fundraiser the weekend of December 13th and 14th. I’ll have the exact date and time ironed out in a few days.
