Breathing for Becky

Becky is a mom of two girls. She is married to her best friend. She has two dogs and a fat cat. And when I say fat, this cat is hefty! Becky even watched Colin for a short time for me. Today Becky sits in the ICU fighting to not be intubated.

Becky has cystic fibrosis and has been fighting every day of her life. A few years ago I has the privilege to work with Becky and share an office with her. Eventually Becky had to stay at home due to her illness. Some days she couldn't even make it off the couch because she was struggling to breath.
Becky goes into the hospital a couple of times a year for "tune ups" but this time was different.

Becky has outlived her lungs. She will be fighting now to make it to Minneapolis to get herself a new pair.

In the meantime her family is working to keep her children's lives somewhat normal. The day to day has to continue to go on.

An online Auction will be held in Honor of Becky. All money raised will go directly to Becky and her Husband to pay off her enormous medical bills.

Search for "Breathing for Becky" under pages and "like" her page.

Dig deep and give whatever you can to help Becky and her family. The hospital bills alone are piling up as we speak.

Thank you in advance for all of your help. Please forward to all of your friends and family.

If interested in donating to the online auction, please email me at jstshirtscarf@gmail.com

With Love,
JScarves

  3. Give me some more details, and I'll happily pass them to as guaranteed a prayer group as I've ever had occasion to be involved with. It's called the Hallelujah Hotline and has been called on at least 4 times in as many years for members of my family - and we're all here to testify to the efficacy of their pleas! You can reach me at the shop (www.coldhamcuddlies.etsy.com - via convo), via my blog at www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com, or e-mail at petis@tiscali.co.uk. In the interim, good luck to Becky and family - and may your efforts on their behalf be well rewarded.
