Update on my BFF's Daughter - Reason to celebrate !! #ZombiePrepTeam #sponsored

Run For Your Lives, the original zombie 5K, has invited me to be a brand ambassador on their Zombie Preparedness Team. Because of your love for my blog, you can take full advantage of my relationship with Run For Your Lives and receive 15% off when registering for any of their races in the United States

At the end of July, I shared with you some information regarding The Kennedy Krieger Institute, and how it focuses on the brain and the problems/injuries affecting a child’s developing brain.

And then I told how close this hit my family.

My Best Friend's eldest daughter was born with Chiari Malformation Type 1. Chiari malformation is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into the spinal canal. Read more about this condition.

Today, My Princess had surgery. The Neurosurgeon said it went well.
Hubby and I visited them at the Children's Hospital and besides a headache and upset tummy, she was good, just sleepy.

Per the request of my BFF, I am not sharing her name or photo. I will only refer to her as "My Princess" or "G".

I've decided to make my Run For Your Lives 5k in her honor! I'm going to have a shirt made and wear it on the run. When I come up with some designs, I'll let you, my readers, choose the design !!!

I am also going to set up donations through paypal. My BFF is a single mom with a new mountain of medical bills and taking time off work to be with her daughter at the hospital is going to financially take it's toll. She also has a younger daughter, My other little Princess "K".

I have something in mind for donations and how to say Thank You to those who help..
I'll save that for another blog post!

Want to donate directly to The Kennedy Krieger Institute? Text "BRAIN" to 85944,where you can donate $5.
