John and Mimi met and fell in love at Ricks college. (Mimi was Bffs with my roommate Jenn Storey, so I got to know her a little bit.) They married and started a family. One 5 year old boy, and one 3 year old girl later...they found out they were having baby number 3. Another little girl.
But sadly there was devastating news in store. About 4 months ago, BABY MIA was born with ATRIAL STENOSIS, which is a very serious heart defect. Basically, their tiny newborn is in dire need of a lifesaving heart transplant. Now, they are praying for a miracle.
In order to be put on the donor list, the McDonalds have to have $450,000 in the bank to cover the surgery. That is a HUGE number. They need our help. PLEASE do what you can, even if it is $1.00.
Any fundraiser ideas are greatly NEEDED, and there are a few already floating out there on the blogworld. My good friend Nichole is making and selling holiday banners with all proceeds going to baby Mia. See her blog for details : justinandnichole.blogspot.com
If nothing else, please put a baby Mia blinkie on your page to help spread the word to your friends.
