A short introduction :)
Hi. My name is Vicki and Amy is graciously letting me do a guest post on Livi's blog. I met Amy in a natural childbirth group when she was pregnant with Livi about three years ago. I feel so incredibly blessed to have found a great friend in Amy. I started learning photography a couple years ago and her feedback and encouragement has been invaluable to me, so much so, that I started my own business. She has this great ability to showcase people's hearts in her photographs and I am sure many of you who are clients know of this talent. I am lucky now that Amy and I have gotten closer and she is one of my best friends. I will do anything I can to help her and her family.
So I am writing to everyone tonight because I want to let you know how you can help the Price family. We all are hoping and praying for a miracle, but we also need to understand the realities of the situation. Amy isn't doing many sessions now so she can be with Liviana. Her income is a large part of the Price family's cash flow. Without it, they cannot pay for basic necessities, not to mention Liviana's supplements, which will hopefully slow the progression of this devastating disorder.
Please don't get me wrong. This is not a guilt-trip. This is a plea for help. A plea to allow this family to spend their days together without having to worry about whether or not they will have heat through the winter. Without worrying about what they will eat. And without worrying about how they will need to pay for a funeral. It would mean so much to me if you could sacrifice your morning coffee or buying the newspaper for a few weeks and instead, give to this family in need. If you are a client, try and buy an extra canvas or other product.
Here is an easy place to donate
If you cannot help financially and live nearby, instead of saying, "I'll help you with whatever you need" or the like, perhaps offer to cook them all a meal and bring it over or maybe even clean her bathrooms. :) If you are not nearby, pass the information about Liviana around to all your friends. The least we can all do is bring awareness of this terrible disorder to those like myself who had never even heard of it prior to Liviana being diagnosed.
Let's help this beautiful angel and her family.
Check up DAY!
