First of all...
Most of you know my amazing daughter Addison.
You may or may not know that Addison was born very early. She was a tiny baby with a lot of problems. She spent 6 months in the hospital before I could bring her home. That was 6 months of doctors telling me daily that she would not make it.
She survived, but she will always have problems due to her premature birth.
One of the things that almost killed her was a condition called NEC that destroys your bowels. She ended up losing 60% of her intestines. After that she barely made it. She will always be tiny and we will always have to worry about her nutrition. She will also always have to take medicine or else she will suffer from terrible stomach pain.
There was a drug back then that could have saved her from all of this... and could have saved so many babies that did not make it for the same reason. Only it was not and is still not approved for use here.
I wont get into how I feel about that or the FDA in general... but I will say this...
It is for this reason that I raise money every year to help fund research to save babies like Addy and all the others who I have seen suffer.
This year, donations are down. Not just for me, but everywhere. So I am doing my best to spread awareness and boost them up. I am offering a prize to one lucky winner who donates to my page. It is a gift card though I haven't decided for where yet. I have a few to choose from I just need to make sure the winner will have access to the place the gift card is for.
On the day of our 5k (which is this Sunday) I will have Addy pick a name from everyone who donated and that is how we will choose the winner.
If any of you wonderful people would like to donate, or know someone who would...

I just would like to give a shout out to my awesome friend Rick.
I am hoping one day I can convince him to get on here but for now I encourage y'all to check out his artwork on Facebook and Share the page with anyone you think might be interested in it.
He does a lot of sports stuff but really can do so much more. In fact he is going to make a Unicorn for Addy for her birthday!
So here is his page, go show him lots of love.Ricks Art
