Not An Actual Post - But An Important One Nonetheless

If you haven't already heard, (Moss Hill Studio's) JoAnna Pierotti's husband, Ron, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.  If he doesn't receive surgery immediately - within the week - it will cut off the blood supply to his brain and he will not live more than a month.  Ron was laid off recently due to the economy and they are currently without health insurance.  They are trying to get help through social services but are unsure if they will qualify.  If you can help even a little bit, please chip in by using the widget below.




I'm sure that all of us, at one time or another, have been helped by the kindness of friends, acquaintences, and strangers.  Here is an opportunity pay that kindness forward, if only with a kind note.  I just keep thinking what a terrible, terrible blow it would be to lose my husband and my heart goes out to JoAnna.  Please join me by sending your thoughts and prayers - and a few extra dollars if you can - her way.
